Belize Visa and Passport Requirements
|Passport required||Return ticket required||Visa required|
To enter Belize, a passport valid for six months beyond the intended length of stay is required by all nationals referred to in the chart above.
All travellers are required to show evidence of sufficient funds (see below) and proof of return or onward ticket at the point of entry.
Visas to Belize are not required by all nationals referred to in the chart above and nationals of their overseas territories for stays of up to 30 days.
There is no transit visa for nationals in the above chart. If you are in transit you should not leave the airport, as you will then be liable to the departure tax. If you are staying for fewer than seven days you can get an In Transit stamp and your exit fee will be reduced.
For nationalities that require a visa, applications should be made to your nearest Belize embassy or high commission. You must show your travel itinerary and accommodation booking confirmation.
Most visas are issued on the following working day. Some applications may require authorisation from the Director of Immigration and Nationality Services in Belize; this can take two to four weeks.
Theoretically, everyone is required to prove they have sufficient funds to cover their stay, which you can demonstrate with bank statements. In practice, you’ll almost never be asked.
Nationals stated in the above chart are able to extend their stay by 30 days at any immigration office in the country.
Adults travelling with children who are not legally their own must have a letter of consent from the children’s parents. Children under 18 travelling with only one parent require the written consent of the other parent. Children under 18 travelling alone must have a passport and letter of parental consent.
