Marty Online   happy

The current hand-written passports are not being recalled or phased out in anyway and it will continue to be valid until its date of expiry. It is highly recommended to get the machine readable passports for easier travelling as most countries prefer it. The passport is more widely accepted and there is less hassle when entering another country as it speeds up the process at the immigration departments.

There are three colors of passports: blue for ordinary citizens, green for service personnel, and red for diplomats. The passport will be valid for ten years, has forty-eight pages, and entitles Belizeans to an automatic six month stay in member states.

Are these now available here on the island? What is the price for a person who has never had a passport? What about renewal? Will these get the new passport? How long does it take from application to having it in hand?

Yes you can get them here. You submit your application here, they take your photo and all is submitted to the central processing department. Takes a few weeks. I can't remember the fees but they are not very high.
