NOTE: Visa requirements may vary for holders of diplomatic passports.
Entry requirements for CANADIAN passport holders:
- Canadians must present a passport to visit Belize, which must be valid for at least six months beyond the date of expected departure from that country. Prior to travelling, ask your transportation company about its requirements related to passport validity, which may be more stringent than the country's entry rules.
- Tourist visa: Not required
- Business visa: Required
- Student visa: Required
- All Canadians visiting Belize must possess a ticket for an onward or return journey and proof of sufficient funds (considered to be US$60 a day). At least half of this total must be in cash; the remaining portion may be covered by credit cards.
- If you plan to go abroad, you should purchase the best travel insurance you can afford before you leave Canada. Your travel insurance should include health, life and disability coverage that will help you avoid large expenses, such as the cost of hospitalization or medical treatment outside Canada. If you are flying, being insured for flight cancellation, trip interruption, lost luggage and document replacement will save you from major disruptions and additional costs. If you are travelling by car, make sure you have driver and vehicle coverage in case you have an accident abroad.
- Visitors not holding return/onward tickets could be refused entry.
- Passengers up to/including 16 years:
- do not need a separate passport if they are registered in passport of parent or guardian;
- when traveling with one parent: must hold an original notarized letter of authorization signed by the absent parent;
- when traveling with adults other than parents, must hold an original notarized letter of authorization signed by both parents;
- adopted minors traveling with both parents must hold custody papers if child's name is different from those of the adopting parents;
- when traveling unaccompanied must hold proof of purpose of travel (address, contact person in Belize etc.), or must be met on arrival by parent/guardian holding proof thereof.
