Message from the U.S. Embassy Spokesperson:


We are in Day-12 of the 30-day national quarantine in El Salvador.

As of April 2, the U.S. Embassy in El Salvador has assisted 2,460 U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents to return to the United States through humanitarian and evacuation flights.  Four additional humanitarian and evacuation flights with an estimated 727 passengers are scheduled through April 5.

I have heard from a number of people who would like to go back to the United States, but are waiting for a direct flight to their preferred location. However, we encourage you to strongly consider our current options to depart El Salvador even if it does not go to your desired location. Once in the United States, you can make your own arrangements to reach your final destination. Please see our flight options here:

Please read the latest Health Alert information very carefully, as it is pertinent to U.S. citizens in El Salvador, which is listed on this page of the website:
