Belize Entrance Fee

There is no entry fee ($0.00). Most tourist passports get a 30 day visa-free stay.

Belize Extension Fee

An extension of 30 days can be purchased for $200.00 BZD (or $100.00 USD) for up to 6 months in total. Before covid, it was priced at only $50.00 BZD (or $25.00 USD).

Belize Departure Tax

Exit fees are required to be paid if crossing by land. If exiting by air, it's likely included in your ticket.

  • More than 24 hours in Belize: $40.00 BZD (or $20.00 USD)
  • Less than 24 hours in Belize: $37.50 BZD (or $18.75 USD)

Entering from Mexico by Land

Mexico Exit Fee: More than 7 days in Mexico: 500 MXN Pesos (or $30.00 USD)

Going to Guatemala by Land

There are absolutely no entrance or exit fees. If they try charge you, it's a scam. The Belize-Guatemala border is well known for this. Be on high alert. You can trust me on this one. I've been scammed myself. Ask for receipts and refuse any obligated transportation especially at the border.
