How hard is it to get an import license for food stuff for resale?

Some items require a permit/license as many agri items are Gov't controlled. These are mainly granted for personal reasons or on a specific time to time basis (ie, Lamb Chops for your restaurant). Many dry goods can only be sold in bulk to the designated Belize agent (large scale importers, James Brodies, Santiago Castillo, etc...) Spirits have their own set of rules. Your best bet is to hire a customs broker and he can outline the permit process for cetain items and the expected duties and taxes applicable to imports.

Not easy but not too hard with the proper broker. I've used George Bradley in the past. Everyone has their favorite.

Thanks, SIN, I've been trying to work my way through the BAHA site.

Do you happen to have a number or email address for George Bradley?

I'd appreciate it!

I've used George as well and know others that use him for their businesses, never had a problem. His number is 600-4221.

I would be very cautious about contacting SIN's brother in-law. I am sure he is looking for a way to get back at him. grin
