New Policy on Belize Immigration and Nationality

 

The Ministry of National Security and Immigration has given careful consideration to the existing laws governing immigration and nationality. It is felt that there is an urgent need to further strengthen the Immigration Act to deter the incidence of illegal entry into Belize. There is also a need to modify the immigration rules relating to thefees charged for nationality and residence permits.

 

The Ministry is guided by the government’s vision as expressed by the Manifesto, Set Belize Free “for a state with secure borders respected by its neighbours, where all citizens are assured that their lives and property are safe and their human rights respected, where laws and institutions are honoured…”

 

The new immigration and nationality policy is designed to achieve four objectives: protect Belizean workers, control and manage our borders, apprehend and deport those who willfully violate our laws, and improve the services of the Immigration and Nationality Department.

 

The Ministry further appeals to those who work, visit or live in Belize to respect and comply with our laws, and calls on those establishments that currently hire foreign nationals to identify and train Belizean wokers.

 

The Ministry of National Security and Immigration intends to introduce and implement the following new measures starting Friday, February 5th, 1999.
