Passports & Visas

To enter Belize, only a valid passport is necessary for citizens of the United States, European Union countries, Australia, Canada, CARICOM member states, Commonwealth realms, Great Britain, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Guatemala, New Zealand, Norway, Iceland, Tunisia, South Africa, and Venezuela; no visa is required. Nationals of most other countries require a visa and/or clearance by the immigration office.

VeroBelize Travel Expert will check for updates on visas for you. You can also check with the Belize Immigration and Nationality Department, the Embassy of Belize in Washington, DC, or other Belize embassies.

If upon arrival the customs official asks how long you expect to stay in Belize, give the longest period you might stay—you may be granted a stay for up to 30 days on the tourist stamp you’ll receive for your passport on entry—otherwise, the official may endorse your passport with a shorter period.

You can renew your entry permit at immigration offices for a fee of BZ$50 per month for the first six months; after six months, it costs BZ$100 a month for up to six more months, at which time you may have to leave the country for 72 hours to start the process over (sometimes this rule isn’t enforced). Note that renewals aren’t guaranteed, but normally are routinely granted.

Belize’s Foreign Policy

To enable the Foreign Ministry to meet the challenges of the new thrust in our diplomacy, it is being strengthened with professionals who possess expertise in legal affairs, trade, investment counseling and promotion of tourism and economic development.

The basic principles which inform and guide the practice of Belizean diplomacy are those enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and in particular those which relate to:

• The maintenance of international peace and security

• Upholding the rule of Law

• The development of friendly relations among states based on respect for the principle of sovereign equality, equal rights and the right to self determination

• Achieving international cooperation in solving international problems

• Promoting and encouraging respect for Human Rights

• The peaceful settlement of disputes and the non resort to the use of force or threat of use of force against the territorial integrity and political independence of any state

• Non-intervention in the internal affairs of a state.
