Preparations continue for Immigration amnesty program

By Aaron Humes: In April, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration is preparing to locate, register and process tens of thousands of would-be Belizeans who settled here in the last decade from other countries.

An amnesty program proposes to get these individuals on the national roster and provide them with permanent residence, which in five years would lead to citizenship and make their collective lives easier.

Following the announcement of the program in December, meetings were planned with key stakeholders this month in order to get the ball rolling.

CEO in the Ministry Dr. Gilroy Middleton updated us on Thursday saying those meetings are ongoing: “We started from last week. This week we are speaking with village councils, the Mayor’s Association, alcalde association. Currently, Director Arzu is meeting with the Solicitor General; so we’re meeting with stakeholders, the budget has been set and we are doing the rounds.”
