About Belize

Additional Information

 Located on the coast of the northeastern part of Central America rests the country of Belize. With various languages spoken and an array of cultural influences, Belize has developed into an extremely diverse country - this place is just waiting to be discovered and explored by the adventurous traveler on our Belize excursions! The climate of Belize is warm, with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees, so be sure to apply lots of sunscreen during your stay. If you forget to pack your own bottle, you can buy one at nearly any gift shop or supermarket; the Belize dollar is the standard currency, but almost all places accept US dollars. The dry season, between approximately late November to mid-April, yields less rain and more tourist activity than the rest of the year. However, it’s always a great time to visit Belize! This is a country that loves to celebrate, so check out the many Belize Holidays of the year while planning your vacation!

Belize boasts some of the most exciting, beautiful, and historical places you’ve ever seen, and we offer the best Belize tours to get you up close and personal with all this country has to offer.

Can I Retire in Belize?

Yes. 

Belize maintains a special residency program for retirees known as the Qualified Retirement Program (QRP). To qualify for this program and gain official resident status in Belize, you must be at least 45 years old and have proven income of at least $2,000 per month or $24,000 per year, from a pension, annuity or another acceptable source. The qualifying sum must be regularly deposited into a bank in Belize to maintain your QRP status. However, once deposited in Belize, the funds remain under your full control and can be withdrawn or spent at will. Note that retirees with QRP status are exempt from Belize income tax. A person must also pass a security clearance and be able to remain in Belize for 30 consecutive days annually.

As of 2017, several fees are associated with the QRP. The nonrefundable QRP application fee is $150. Once accepted into the program, you must pay an applicant program fee of $1,000, in addition to $750 for each qualifying family member listed on the application (including spouses, children under 18 and in some specific cases, children up to the age of 23 if they can verify they are in school). An additional $200 fee is assessed upon delivery of your official QRP Residency Card. All told, the out-of-pocket cost for QRP status is $2,100 for a married couple. Once retired, there is an annual renewal fee of $50.
