Belize Covid-19 Travel Insurance Requirements

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

Your safety is our #1 priority, thus the reason we created this helpful blog about Belize's Safe Travel Requirements you should take into consideration when planning your trip.

Update On Travel Insurance To Belize

On July 12, 2022, The Belize Tourism Board and the Government of Belize decided to remove all public health measures at the points of entry in Belize (land and sea).

Should I Still Consider Purchasing Belize Travel Insurance?

You are in the planning stages of your family vacation to Belize. That is an exciting process, right?

You are looking at all the historic archeological sites you want to visit and experience.

Oh, wait, don't forget about a tour that will allow you to go spelunking in the famous Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve.

You definitely don't want to miss scuba diving or snorkeling with the magnificent whale shark - these gentle creatures are the size of a school bus (this tour is seasonal.)

Many people plan every detail of their vacation, except one of the most obvious - travel insurance.

No matter how carefully you plan, there is always the possibility that something can go wrong before or during your trip.

And, if it does (and we pray to God that you have the most beautiful and safe trip to Belize), you will thank yourself that you considered purchasing travel insurance as part of your Belize vacation planning.

Imagine days before you fly to Belize, your daughter is hospitalized for a health issue and you and your family decide it is best to cancel your trip.

If the reason you cancel is listed in your travel insurance policy, your trip cancellation insurance can reimburse you for prepaid and non-refundable expenses.

Thus, you can file a claim to get reimbursement for your scheduled tours in the jungles of Belize and the beautiful islands and the Barrier Reef.

What Are The Acceptable Reasons To Get Reimbursed Via The Belize Travel Insurance I Purchased If I Cancel My Belize Vacation:

Here are some of the reasons:

  • Death of a travel companion or a close family member

  • A serious family emergency

  • Severe weather

  • Other unforeseen problems as specified by your policy

Details vary by insurance company, so be sure to review your policy so you know what’s covered under trip cancellation.

Belize Travel Insurance is a collaborative effort between the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), the Insurance Corporation of Belize (ICB), and the Government of Belize.
