Visa for Belize

All visitors to Belize must be in the possession of a valid passport. This passport must be valid for at least six months after the intended departure from Belize. Note that this means that if you wish to spend time in Belize from January until June (inclusive), your passport must be valid until the end of December of that same year.

Most Belize visa applications can be handled within one week (or five business days). However, if your visa application requires authorisation from the Director of Immigration and Nationality Services in Belize, you should expect that it may take two to four weeks. So if you are planning to visit Belize and need a visum, it is best to take care of this at least a month before your planned arrival in Belize. 
 
Please note that there needs to be a seperate application for each individual within a group, this is regardless of the age of the individuals.
