Continued Opioid Substitution Treatment: not possible

Importation of methadone, buprenorphine, morphine: possible

Travellers intending to bring methadone, buprenorphine, morphine or other medically prescribed opioids into Guatemala have to carry with them a certification (in English or Spanish) from the patient’s home prescriber clearly stating that the patient needs the medication and that it has been prescribed for personal use only. The certification must include the specific dates of arrival and departure from Guatemala and must be notified by the town/city public health department (home country). We recommend to also carry a copy of the original prescription issued by the duly licensed attending physician/doctor

Contact Address: any Guatemalan diplomatic mission
