Further Instructions for Traveling on State Department Charter Flights to the United States

March 26, 2020

Location: Guatemala

Event:   U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents wishing to travel on U.S. government-coordinated charter flights from Guatemala City to the United States are reminded of the following requirement for registration and travel on State Department charter flights:

When contacting the U.S. Embassy to submit traveler information, we request that each traveler submit their information individually (one form per passenger). Parents/guardians should submit one form for each child that will be accompanying them, and note their relationship in the “Special Considerations” box in the form.

U.S. citizens must be in a possession of a U.S. passport and legal permanent residents are required to be in possession of a valid green card.

**PLEASE NOTE** Earlier this morning (Thursday, March 26), the U.S. Embassy announced a revision to the process to submit requests from U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents wishing to pursue U.S. government-coordinated flight options. We did this to streamline the process for manifesting passenger lists and to resolve some technical challenges that were slowing down our ability to inform passengers.

If you have not already filled out the U.S. Embassy’s revised submission form (announced in our message earlier today), we kindly ask that you submit your information using the link below, and submit a separate form for each passenger.  We realize this is an inconvenience for those who have already submitted their data previously, but it is necessary so that we can best serve your needs.
