The U.S. Embassy strongly discourages U.S. citizens from bringing weapons to Guatemala. It is a crime for a foreigner to bring a weapon or ammunition to Guatemala without receiving authorization from the Government of Guatemala BEFORE you travel to Guatemala. To request authorization, please visit this website: https://www.digecam.mil.gt/web/ (only in Spanish). If you arrive in Guatemala with a weapon or ammunition without pre-authorization, you will be detained, and your weapon and ammunition will be confiscated. If you are detained or charged with a crime, please seek the assistance of a local attorney. Our referential list of local lawyers is here.
