FAQs: Health and Travel

Visitors from most European and American countries, as well as Australia, will not need a travel visa, but will have to purchase a travel card upon arrival. This will cost roughly US $10 to $12, and will need to be paid in cash.

Travellers must have a valid passport for at least 6 months from their arrival date.

Do I need a COVID test?

You don’t need proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to enter El Salvador. 

However, we recommend bringing proof of vaccination with you, in case requirements change at short notice either in El Salvador or in countries you are likely to travel through. We also recommend bringing several COVID-19 antigen/lateral flow rapid self-tests. 

Do you have any other COVID-19 guidance?

Please see our Covid-19 guidelines here.

If you are from Africa, South America, or Panama, you may need to prove that you received a vaccination for yellow fever at least 15 days prior to your arrival in El Salvador.

El Salvador’s international airport is Oscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez Airport (SAL).

How can I get from the airport to the city?

As well as local taxi services and Ubers, you can also rent a car. We recommend, however, arranging an airport transfer directly with your hotel – you can ask if it offers this service ahead of your arrival. 

Do I need travel and health insurance?

We strongly advise that international visitors book travel and health insurance before departing for El Salvador. Producer & Roaster Forum will not be held liable for any problems that arise from uninsured visitors’ lack of insurance.

Other FAQs & Disclaimer

How does PRF support producers?

As with previous events, the aim of PRF El Salvador 2023 will be to drive green coffee sales and generate income for Salvadoran coffee producers. There are plenty of networking opportunities which are focused on allowing producers to meet and forge relationships with buyers, including the Sourcing Trip Experience (STE).

Alongside this, we also provide simultaneous translation for lectures and speeches in English, so that Spanish-speaking coffee producers will be able to understand them.

We also run a number of other producer-focused initiatives in parallel with PRF. One of the best examples of this is our means-tested scholarship programme.

The scholarship programme covers the cost of the ticket to the forum, making sure they can attend PRF and capitalise on the opportunities offered by the event.

What are the sponsorship opportunities at PRF?

We offer a range of tiered sponsorship packages for brands who are interested.

Alongside these, we also have exhibitor booths and stands, cupping and workshop rooms, category-exclusive sponsorships, and more. Take a look at this page for more information, and use the contact form to get in touch if you’re interested.

My company is interested in purchasing a booth or sponsoring the event. Is there still space available?

Yes! You can reach out to reserve your space via the contact form. You can also get in touch at info@producerroasterforum and request our media kits.
