New PGIA Entry Requirements for Belizeans and Permanent Residents

By 10/2/2020

The lifting of the registration requirement for Belizean nationals and permanent residents is another effort by the Government of Belize to make the return to Belize easier.

All Belizeans and permanent residents of Belize planning their arrival via the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA) must:
  • Complete the Belize Travel Health App and save the QR Code and TRIP number issued to show the airline at check-in and upon entry to Belize. The results can be printed or saved on a mobile device.

  • Belizean nationals and permanent residents do not need to register to enter Belize – only download and complete questions on the Belize Health Travel App.
Belizeans, permanent residents, and all others who test negative for COVID-19 and head into the community are expected to self-quarantine at home for 10 days and are strongly encouraged to wear masks, maintain social distancing of six feet where possible, regularly wash hands, refrain from touching the eyes, noses or mouths, and carefully disinfect and regularly wipe down all shared surfaces for their safety and the safety of those around them.

Any person testing positive for COVID-19 upon arrival at the PGIA will be required to transfer to the authorized quarantine hotel (Ramada Belize City Princess Hotel) at their own expense for a period of 14 days or until there are two negative PCR test results. For those unable to pay in such cases, the alternative is the Quarantine Authority designated government-sponsored site such as D’Silva Camp in the Mountain Pine Ridge.

It should be noted that in this third reopening phase, land and sea ports of entry remain closed to travelers at this time except for cargo. Therefore, persons needing to enter or depart Belize via Benque Viejo del Carmen or Corozal must continue to obtain clearance via repatriation@mfa.gov.bz to coordinate their safe transit.

Our expert guide, Jorge De ... moreLeon, from Lion Adventure Tours, takes us on this trip and gives us some travel tips for your next in-person visit to Caracol. In AD 650, the urban area of Caracol had a radius of approximately 177 square kilometers. It boasts the tallest man-made structure in the country of Belize, and the city covered an area much larger than present-day Belize City (the largest metropolitan area in the country of Belize). At its peak, Caracol supported more than twice the modern city’s population. Caracol is a must-see, as it is one of the largest cities of the classic period and was in the middle of a power struggle with powerful cities like Tikal and Naranjo in Guatemala.
