By BBN Staff: The Mexican media outlet Bullet QRoo is reporting that the Mexican Federal Government has passed a new law requiring Belizeans to pay an additional fee when entering through the northern border at Corozal.
Mexico is also reportedly planning on charging an additional 30 percent on ordinary passport allowances due to emergency.
Bullet QRoo notes that businesses in the state have raised major concerns over the law, which they said could discourage Belizeans from shopping in Chetumal and ultimately hurt their economy.
Earlier this year, Quintana Roo’s National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism (Canaco Servytur) said that the COVID-19 pandemic had caused losses of up to 18 million pesos (over BZ$1.69 million) per month because an estimated 30,000 Belizeans were unable to cross the border due to lockdowns.
The law was reportedly passed earlier this week.
