Belize reopening tourism in October

TD Editor

The Prime Minister of Belize Dean Barrow has made the official announcement that Belize’s international airport will be opened on 1 October 2020 as part of the country’s five-phase re-opening strategy for tourism.

Belize previously announced it would reopen in August 2020, however, in an overabundance of caution for visitors and residents alike, postponed the reopening until further notice. The opening of the international airport will kick-off Belize’s third phase of re-opening, allowing for a limited re-opening of international leisure travel with approved hotels only.

Enhanced health and safety protocols for hotels, restaurants and tour operators serve as the foundation for the destination’s newest “Tourism Gold Standard” Recognition Programme. This nine-point programme seeks to enhance the tourism industry’s health and safety standards by adapting new behaviours and procedures to ensure both employees and travellers are confident in the cleanliness and safety of Belize’s tourism product.

Additional details on travel protocols and health and safety precautions will be released in the coming days to prepare travellers for their trip to Belize. As the situation continues to remain fluid, these protocols are subject to change.
