Travel To Belize

Travel to Belize is easy. The country is serviced by several major international airlines, and is only two hours away from major US gateways. Belize’s most outstanding feature is the warmth and friendliness of our people whom you will encounter as you enter into Belize and everywhere you go.  BETEX is ready to assist with providing the required information that will ensure that travel arrangements are convenient for all international participants.

Entry Requirements

BETEX  will make all attempts to help facilitate the process for our buyers or international press to obtain required custom permits, provided that all required information is received no later than one month prior to arrival.  Buyers requesting assistance should send the request in writing no later than one month before arrival, including the name of the registered participant, person responsible, description, amount, weight, number of parcels and equipment that they wish to bring into the country for business purposes.

Each participant is responsible for his or her own documentation to enter Belize.
