Are There Tourist Taxes in Belize?


There is an exit fee of $39.25 USD charged by officials upon a traveler’s departure from Belize. For cruise ship passengers, the fee is $7 USD. Even for a day trip into Guatemala that returns to Belize in the same day, a fee may be charged, depending on the immigration officer on duty.

There are no extra taxes on individual items purchased by tourists, and in fact, U.S. citizens are allowed a $400 duty-free tax exemption in Belize.
