By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Home Affairs and the Belize Police Department have issued a statement advising holders of Firearm, Gun Dealers, Sport Hunters and the general public of the proposed increase and application of new fees and the requirement for firearm certification.

While there are no fees for gun repair license, there is now a proposed $50.

The Special Protection License for Belizeans will be increased from $75 to $225. The Special Protection License for Non Belizean will be tripled from $500 to $1500.

Bullet proof vests which carried a fee of $100 for any amount will now see a fee of $100 per vest. The Heirloom License will also see a fee of $300 per gun which is similar to the Training and Certification for License Holders.

Belizean farmers who only paid $5 will now see that fee quadrupled to $25.

The Gun Dealers Importation Permit which stands at $200 will only remain at that cost for up to 14 weapons on a single importation permit while 15 or more weapons will cost a whopping $3000 per permit.

Other fees such as the Gun Dealer License which stands at $650 will not see any changes.

The Company Gun License, Security Guard License, Private Security License, Sport Hunters (Belizean and non-Belizean) and Shot gun holders (Non Belizean) will also not see any changes in their fees.

According to the ministry, it is considering increasing penalties for certain firearm related incidents.
