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 is English-speaking, and friendly Belizeans are always willing to ensure that visitors receive all the help they need. BETEX is willing to assist in any way possible to ensure that travel arrangements are convenient for all international participants.

Entry Requirements

BETEX cannot be held responsible for obtaining any customs permits for buyers or international press, but will make all attempts to facilitate the process, 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. However BETEX, upon request, will make every effort to assist in the process of obtaining visas in accordance with information and requirements by the Department of Immigration. BETEX will assist in communicating with the appropriate authorities on any matter affecting the participants and their safe and easy transit. A valid passport is required to enter Belize. Visas are not required from nationals of various countries, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and member nations of the European Community, and nationals of CARICOM countries. For more information on entry requirements, please
contact your airline, nearest embassy or info@betex.bz. An airport departure tax is applicable.
