Persons needing to depart Belize via Benque Viejo del Carmen or Corozal must continue to obtain clearance by sending an e-mail to director@ins.gov.bz and copied to protocol@mfa.gov.bz. If your departure is for medical reasons, you must also include dhs@health.gov.bz

In your email, include:

purpose of travel (include a copy of a medical letter or student ID if applicable); 

date of travel; 

if you need a PCR test for your departure, send your name, address, telephone number, and copy of Social Security Card via email to dhsoffice@health.gov.bzor WhatsApp to 614-566. Please note that swabbing is done every Wednesday with results on Thursday. 

Those seeking to re-enter the country via Benque Viejo del Carmen or Corozal must continue to coordinate their entry by emailing repatriation@mfa.gov.bz and including the following:

a copy of the bio-data page of your passport;
