Belize is welcoming travelers again, with a Tourism Gold Standard program in place designed to keep you safe and recognized as one of the top in the world. See our Health & Safety page for up-to-date details related to COVID-19 vaccinations, testing requirements and everything else you need to know in order to have the Belize vacation of your dreams.
It has now been two months since Belize cautiously opened its international airport to welcome back travelers, and we have seen the merry faces of our visitors making the most of Belize as we near the coutnry’s peak travel season. Since the initial reopening, Belize’s entry requirements have relaxed, while still maintaining the priority of safety and health for both travelers and residents. If you’re itching to pack your bags and book it to this tropical Jewel, here is what you need to do.
- Download the Health App. A constant in Belize’s reopening process, the Belize Health App (found on the App store and for Android here) aims to monitor the health and movements of those entering the country. Everyone is required to download and complete the information on the app within 72 hours of arrival in Belize . Note: Take a screenshot of the unique ID and QR Code that will be generated upon completion of the app. This is to show authorities once you arrive to Belize.
- Take a PCR Test within 72 hours of travel. All those entering through the Philip Goldson International Airport must bring along a PCR test taken within 72 hours of boarding your flight to Belize. If you are unable to bring along a PCR test, you will need to take a Covid test upon arrival at the airport at the cost of USD$50. Note: Even if you present a negative test, you may still be randomly selected for secondary testing based on your health screening. If negative, you may proceed to enjoy your vacation. If positive, a 14-day quarantine is mandatory.
- Book a Gold Standard Hotel. All tourists must stay at Gold Standard certified accommodations (list here) to ensure the utmost safety for all travelers and locals. Visitors are also encouraged to only utilize Gold Standard providers including gift shops, tour operators, restaurants, and attractions.
This easy, three-step process, will ensure that you have a safe and fun Belize vacation. Easy, right? If you have any questions regarding our entry requirements, call us at 1-800-624-0686 or email us at info @travelbelize.org.
