Strategic Priorities

To promote development and income of both domestic and foreign private investment as a means of generating economic growth and employment opportunities for Hondurans, we perform our work with the following approach:


Investor Registration

The Investor Registry is the instrument that allows identification of investments made or to be made in Honduras, registering both the mercantile society, the shareholders, and participating natural persons local or foreign. The Registry provides statistics on investment types and sectors.


  • Registration certificate, which in the case of foreigners, facilitates their immigration procedures.
  • Free legal assistance for investment and business formalization.
  • Annual submission of updated information on economic-financial, tax and legal issues.
  • Invitation to training events on business opening and private investment issues.
  • Attention to complaints aimed at the protection of investors.
