Belize Has New Rules for Vaccinated Travelers

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 24, 2021

Belize was the first Caribbean destination to waive pre-testing requirements for fully vaccinated visitors. 

But following similar moves by a number of Caribbean destinations, Belize will now require all travelers, vaccinated and unvaccinated to prevent a negative PCR test. 

All travelers must present a negative PCR test taken and received within 96 hours of travel or a negative antigen rapid test taken within 48 hours of travel. 

If no test is presented, a test will be administered at the airport for a fee of $50 per passenger.

Children under the age of 5 years old will not be required to present a negative test; children five and over will have to present a negative test, however. 

Belize has undertaken one of the more successful tourism reopenings in the Caribbean since initially reopening to travelers late last summer. 

It’s the latest in a growing number of Caribbean destinations that now require testing for vaccinated travelers, including moves in the last month by The Bahamas and Aruba, among others.
