The Belizean government's expat retiree incentive programme is being scaled down due to its own success. New retirees wanting to settle in Belize from Canada, United States and United Kingdom are advised to apply now to take advantage of the generous current programme before new rules are announced in early 2010.

Belize now has 20,000 new residents thanks to the Qualified Retired Persons (QRP) programme introduced by the Tourist Board of Belize in 1999. The QRP program asked for applicants to be over the age of 45 with a minimum monthly income of US$2,000 in exchange for permanent residency in this frost-free affordable country with a population in 2008 of 310,000.

I was going to say that but though they'd likely cite Google as their source.

It's a repeat of a phony press release by an international real estate seller.

Yes, someone taking advantage of the news that BTB is changing ORP, but to make it more attractive, not scale it down. Contact BTB for more info

The same topic came up on the other forum, and a reputable member has said that the the QRP will not be discontinued. But BTB are reviewing to lighten up on some rules...

I'd suggest contacting the BTB directly.
