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 normalcy, with all businesses allowed to open. Few businesses are still using preventive measures such as setting up sanitation stations at the entrance of stores. All businesses are now allowed to open now after a period of which nightclubs, casinos, and bars were not permitted to operate. There is no longer a curfew and mandatory use of a mask in both indoor and outdoor environments after being lifted on 1 March 2022. Banks and Government offices still require mandatory use of face masks within their premises. Belize recommends using a mask (face and nose covering) and maintaining six (6) feet social distancing.

Effective March 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers to Belize can now enter without a negative COVID test. However, travellers must present proof of vaccination status for entry into Belize's airport, land borders, or sea ports.
