Latest Travel Update: New US testing requirements for entry into the US

15 January 21
In light of the new entry requirements to the USA requiring all visitors, residents and US citizens to show proof of a negative Covid19 test (PCR and Antigen test) within 72 hours of their departure from Belize, we wanted to provide an update. The regulation will take effect on January 26th requiring paper or electronic proof. Those who have tested positive within the past 3 months before travel needs to bring proof that they have recovered from the virus and are cleared to travel by a licensed healthcare provider.

In response to this new requirement, the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), after consultation with the Belize Ministry of Health and Wellness has confirmed that testing will be expanded and made available to all passengers departing Belize for the U.S. Further details including cost and testing locations across the country are being determined and we will provide a further update as these elements are clarified.

In the event that a guest tests positive and is unable to travel home, we will work closely with guests to organize the best possible services and care on a case by case basis. Guests may remain in their Gold Standard certified hotel (in isolation) with in-room comforts and room service available.

During these challenging times for travelers and tourism businesses, we are extremely grateful for our visitors and our commitment is to ensure the best travel experience possible. We hope to see you soon!
