Got the female heads up on that Iím sure.
The Belize Government is putting a label on females getting residency cards as ĎDomesticí, its printed right on the card they are required to use as an ID.. Iím a man and I can giggle a little at that but I bet Women acquiring Residency in Belize donít think thatís to funny. Or may be Iím wrong females acquiring residency in Belize might not care at all about the tagÖ?

Here in Belize it is a privileged position to be able to call yourself a house wife (domestic). Most women have to go outside the home and work these days. Or they choose to. But either way, when you work outside the home you don't get to class yourself as domestic anymore!

I didn't believe these people that are classed Domestics classed themselves, I'm sure these people didn't class themselves as domestics.
Amanda I think your speaking for yourself , you have never had a residency card have you, all those women needing residence are from a culture outside of Belize that perceives the term domestic as demeaning. unless they are from somewhere like Peten or North Africa.

Capt Jeff

She could be a domestic if she beat you at your condo, but if you go to visit her, its a Business Woman classification I think

I'm pretty sure that as a resident she can get a "Dominatrix License", but don't try beating anyone on a merely a work permit or heaven forbid a visitors visa, as the locals will revolt!

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
