Belize to introduce “Work Where You Vacation” Program

Posted: Thursday, February 18, 2021. 11:36 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: As Belizean tourism struggles to recover from the devastating effect of the pandemic, the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations has been approved to introduce a long-stay visitor program to allow for extended visitor permits for targeted visitors and nationalities. This program is aimed at encouraging tourists to stay longer in a program to be known as “Work Where You Vacation.”

As we reported this week, increasing numbers of Americans and others have relocated to sunnier climates such as Belize, either temporarily or permanently, to avoid the worst of the pandemic in the U.S. and other First World countries. 

In addition, Cabinet gave its approval for the Ministry of Tourism to expand and improve the Qualified Retired Persons Incentive Program.
