Along with the removal of entry requirements to the country, purchase of the Belize Travel Insurance is now optional for entry but is still encouraged for protection against any incurred medical and non-medical emergency expenses in relation to Covid-19.
To celebrate the lifting of restrictions, the tourist board has highlighted some of the country’s new tourist attractions.
These include a new dive wreck site and reef enhancement project. Located at Blackbird Caye, this new dive destination will relieve stress on natural reef habitats and offer divers the opportunity to explore the vast array of marine life found in Belize’s waters, including manatees, turtles, manta rays and dolphins. The project will be among one of the largest wreck dive destinations in the Caribbean.
Evan Tillett, Director of Tourism at Belize Tourism Board, said: “We are delighted that Belize is now in the position to be able to remove all COVID-19 entry restrictions into the country and that visitors will no longer need to have proof of vaccination, or a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival.
“Belize offers the perfect getaway for the post-pandemic traveller looking to escape the crowds and we look forward to meeting the demand from travellers wanting to experience the diversity of our country and to explore our Barrier Reef, rainforest and cultural experiences.”
