Update on Belize Entry Requirements
Belize City, Belize, 14 July 2022—The Belize Tourism Board advises effective today, that the Government of Belize has decided to remove all public health measures at the points of entry in Belize (land and sea). With the updated regulations coming into effect, the following changes have been implemented for persons travelling to Belize:
- Belize Travel Insurance: Purchase of the insurance is now optional for entry but encouraged for protection against incurred medical and non-medical emergency expenses. For more information visit https://www.belizetravelinsurance.com/ and https://www.belizevisitorinsurance.com/.
- Vaccination and Testing: Proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test is no longer required upon arrival and for entry into Belize at all official border points (land and sea).
This recent adjustment to Belize’s COVID-19 Prevention Regulations is outlined in Statutory Instrument No.100 of 2022 of the PUBLIC HEALTH (REFORM) (PREVENTION OF THE SPREAD OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE) (COVID-19) REGULATIONS.
The Government of Belize cautions that in light of the presence of the BA.2 and BA.5 sub variants in Belize, vaccines remain the best protection against severe disease and death from COVID-19. International Tourists are also reminded that they must book their stay at a BTB approved hotel.
As Belize continues to rebound, let us do our part to keep our country safe and the preferred destination for travelers. The Belize Tourism Board encourages all persons to continue to keep safe, wash your hands, and get vaccinated.
