This is a question just for my general knowledge. I was wondering how things like residency and work permits change for an American when he/she marries a Belizean. I know that generally when a foreigner moves down to Belize they must live there for a year before obtaining residency and 6 months before getting a work permit. Does this change at all when marrying a Belizean? Plus, how are Americans accepted into the community once they marry a Belizean? Hope someone out there can help and thanks in advance. Melissa
