Entry/exit requirements

It is the sole prerogative of every country or territory to determine who is allowed to enter or exit. Canadian consular officials cannot intervene on your behalf if you do not meet entry or exit requirements. The following information has been obtained from the Belizean authorities and is subject to change at any time.

The country- or territory-specific entry/exit requirements are provided on this page for information purposes only. While every effort is made to provide accurate information, information contained here is provided on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind, express or implied. The Government of Canada assumes no responsibility, and shall not be liable for any damages in connection to the information provided. It is your responsibility to check with the High Commission of Belize or one of its consulates for up-to-date information.
Official (special and diplomatic) passport holders must consult the Official Travel page, as they may be subject to different entry requirements.


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.
Border officials sometimes charge foreigners excessive entry or exit fees. Obtain current information before leaving Canada. If you are overcharged, ask to see a senior official.

Departure tax

There is an airport departure tax of US$35, which is normally included in the price of the plane ticket.

Children and travel

Children need special documentation to visit certain countries. See Children for more information.
