By Aaron Humes: Following the formal announcement in the Senate on Monday, the Immigration Department is hosting an information session with the press to kick off the public campaign leading up to the start of Amnesty 2022 next April.

The Government has said this has become necessary in order to regularize the status of thousands of undocumented migrants who have come into Belize in the decades since the last amnesty in 1999. From an estimated 20 thousand in 2010 when a planned amnesty was not carried out, the number has doubled if not tripled, according to estimates.

The initiative will also help open up opportunities for this population and provide a more accurate population count and improve statistics for social, economic, and migration planning and policies.

Persons who qualify included registered asylum seekers (refugees) numbering about 4 thousand, and irregular migrants who have resided here continuously since 2010, have children born here prior to 2020, completed education here up to secondary level, married a Belizean, in common-law union with a Belizean for at least five years, are children residing in homes or foster care and recommended by the Ministry of Human Development and have maintained gainful employment here for at least five years.

More on this later.
