Citizenship in Honduras is primarily acquired by birth. Individuals who classify as natural born Hondurans include all those born within Honduran territory with the exception of diplomats.
Those born in a foreign country from a natural born Honduran, those born in Honduran war ships or planes or in Honduran territory waters, and those infants found in Honduras with unknown parentage, all qualify as Honduran citizens.
The other criteria for acquiring Honduran citizenship is through naturalisation. Those that qualify for naturalisation include Natural Born Central American citizens with at least one consecutive year in the country, Spanish and Ibero-American citizens with at least two consecutive years in the country, and other foreigners with at least three consecutive years in the country.
Should foreigners be granted Honduran citizenship, they would have to renounce their previous citizenship/s. However, the Republic of Honduras also has a number of Dual Nationality treaties in place. According to Article 24 of the Constitution, where there exists a treaty on dual nationality, the foreigner seeking Honduran citizenship is not required to renounce his/her nationality. Likewise, a Honduran seeking to obtain foreign nationality of a Dual Citizenship Treaty signatory country, shall not lose his Honduran nationality.
