Citizens of the following countries do not require a Visa to travel to Belize if they possess a valid passport 125X125_1_Graphic Banner/Text_24hrs>Forbes and a round trip or continuing airline ticket:European Union, United States of America, British Commonwealth (Excluding India), Costa Rica, Mexico and Austria.[1] Visitors from these countries may alternatively attain a valid visitor’s permit for a thirty-day duration at a border crossing or airport. To extend this permit past thirty days, it is necessary to visit an immigration office. The fee for this extension is $50 US.

Other citizens can obtain visas for $50 US (Plus shipping another $10 – $20)  from the nearest Belizean embassy or consulate or from a British embassy or consulate if the Belize does not maintain such in your country. Finally, as a last resort a Visa may be obtained from the immigration office at Philip Goldson International Airport in Belize.[2]
