Home » Jamaicans must abide by tighter travel regulations in Belize.
As part of the new immigration policies announced today, Haitians no longer have the option of entering Belize without a visa, while Jamaicans must provide confirmation that they have paid for their housing before entering the nation.
During a Cabinet meeting earlier this week, when it was addressed how citizens of both Caribbean Community island countries are utilizing Belize as a transit country for their attempts to enter the United States illegally, the Belizean government made the announcement.
Cabinet decided to invoke Article 226 (a) of the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas, which will allow the Minister of Immigration to immediately impose a visa requirement for Haitians wishing to visit Belize and to require Jamaican nationals to show proof of fully paid non-refundable hotel reservations before arrival. This decision came after a thorough discussion on the rising number of visitors using Belize as a transit country to reach the United States.
