What are Belize’s COVID19 Protocols?

Entry Requirements to Belize as per the Belize Tourism Board Regulations:

  • Passengers who provide certification of a negative test result from a Covid-19 PCR test done within 72 hours of travel will be allowed immediate entry into Belize via a ‘fast track’ lane for further health screening including temperature check.
  • Passengers who do not provide a negative Covid-19 test, must test upon arrival in Belize, at the passenger’s expense.  A negative test result will allow entry into Belize.
  • Passengers who test positive for Covid-19 at the Belize International Airport will be placed in mandatory quarantine for a minimum period of 14 days at the passenger’s expense.

All arriving passengers to Belize will be required to:

  • Wear a mask during the entire landing, deplaning, arrival and departure process, and while inside the airport.
  • Undergo temperature checks using non-contact digital infrared thermometers or Thermal Imaging Cameras.
  • Adhere to social distancing guidelines in all queues for health checks, immigration, and customs inspections.
  • Follow and respond to the comprehensive, pro-active, contact tracing guidelines to facilitate an appropriate and rapid response from health officials should Covid-19 symptoms develop.
  • Utilize the sanitizing stations to sanitize hands frequently and facilitate other health screening requirements on arrival.

What to Expect as you Interact in the Country:

  • increased sanitation requirements (hand-washing, disinfection)
  • mask policies where masks are required
  • face shields and/or desk shield barriers
  • social distancing requirements enforced particularly where groups gather (airport, lobbies, restaurants, tours)
