Ministry of Immigration  suspends services

Posted: Tuesday, March 24, 2020. 1:42 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Today the Ministry of Immigration announced that several of its services are suspended with immediate effect until further notice.

The suspended services are applications for Belize passport (except where there is a need for a passport for emergency travel); applications for nationality; applications for permanent residence; and applications for visas (except where such visas are required to allow the applicant to obtain extensions in order to maintain their legal status in Belize).

“The Ministry reminds the public that the borders remain closed and that travel is allowed only in the case of an emergency. In addition, the public is to refrain from visiting immigration offices if experiencing flu-like symptoms or have traveled within the last 14 days from a country in which COVID-19 has been confirmed,” the Ministry said.

The announcement follows the first confirmed case of the coronavirus strain (COVID-19) reported in Belize yesterday. While the Ministry of Immigration has suspended some services, many government departments remain open and are functioning as normal. The Ministry of Natural Resources is one such ministry that continues to operate and issued a statement last week notifying the public that it would resume normal business as of Monday, March 23.
