Belize’s high demand for E-Passports prompts new order: Immigration Minister

Posted: Saturday, February 4, 2023. 8:35 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Belizeans can now apply and renew their passports with ease, thanks to the new online appointment system. The system makes booking appointments and gathering necessary documents a stress-free process.

Minister of Immigration, Eamon Courtenay, attributes the introduction of the system to high demand for e-passports. The government had to order more passports as the initial stock ran out far quicker than anticipated.

According to Courtenay, the Ministry had underestimated the demand for the new passports and had to bring some orders forward, which required them to stop printing passports for another country and prioritize Belize. He adds that the ministry is working to clear the backlog.
