Do Foreigners need Work Permits in Belize

A popular,and often  asked question, is do we need work permits as we are from the first world and we really want to stay in Belize but need an income to afford to do so.

The answer is categorically yes but some of the newer unopened resorts do not think that this is the case.They use the excuse we are not open yet and therefore the spa,restaurants etc are not really open and therefore the foreign workers do not need permits.

A foreigner (i.e. someone non-Belizean) can get a work permit,residency or nationality but all take various amounts of time, and during this they cannot work (paid or unpaid) until their application has been accepted by the GOB. People can,of course,without any permits invest in businesses but cannot take part in the day to day running of these enterprises.

The AD trusts that this explanation is as clear as mud.

Update on Mahogany Bay

The Ambergris Daily can confirm that the rumors that there is a  “Cease and Desist”order from the Hilton group on this resort is totally false,and that it is currently in good standing with the Hilton Curio Collection.

People are still asking why it has taken so long to open. Just think of the investors who put their money into the scheme three or four years ago and have yet to see a brass farthing from their investment,and as yet have no official opening date.

Mahogany Bay and the Hilton Curio Collection-Is All Well?

Rumurs are circulating around San Pedro that Mahogany Bay has received a “Cease and Desist” order from the Hilton Hotel group. The Ambergris Daily has tied to get to the bottom of this rumor but to no avail.

For readers who do not know of this new hotel which appears to have a problem with their opening dates. They have been opening for the past couple of years but the dates are always pushed back, and no-one appears to know of an actual scheduled opening date and it is not yet possible to book for next year.

A few months ago Mahogany Bay actually had pictures of their Spa site which was actually the one owned,operated and built by Victoria House. This was explained as a small administrative error.

A nearby hotel owner was overheard by the AD to say who on earth would want to stay next to a bunch of sewage ponds.
