Coronavirus (COVID-19) and your Business

Belize's response to Covid-19

Since March 2020 we have seen the COVID-19 pandemic surge across the globe. Belize was no exception as  various restrictions on communities, businesses and individuals have varied by district and weakened the economy and have caused major disruption to workplace operations, which has had a global economic impact. 

Government of Belize Measures

Belize is currently operating at almost normalacy, with most business activity shifting to online and local stores having limiting the number of people allowed at a time, usually to around 10 depending on the size of the establishment. Most businesses are now allowed to open with a few exceptions such as nightclubs. There is currently a curfew in place everyday between the hours of 9 PM and 4 AM. Belize observes the mandatory use of mask (face and nose covering) and social distancing of six (6) feet.

Effective March 2021, vaccinated travellers to Belize can now enter with or without a COVID-19 vaccination and presenting a negative COVID-19 test result that is within 72 hours. Travellers can also download and complete on their mobile device the Belize Travel Health App within 72 hours of travel to Belize (not before). A QR Code and TRIP Number, will be generated when you complete the App - immediately take a screen capture or print it and have it readily available on your mobile device on the day of your travel.
