That was quite a reactionary response.

I can see scenarios where it would make sense to support someone who may not have a work permit. For example... Let's say that... hypothetically... a person is living in Belize who makes his income from working on the internet. 100% of his income comes from sources outside of Belize. Now in this scenario, regardless if he has a work permit or not, he's bringing money into the country and costing not one job to a local. In fact, he would be working that same job regardless where he lived.

It should be something that is welcomed as the income brought into Belize is not generated from Belizeans. A very good thing for any landlord, store or restaurant that this hypothetical person does business with, and it's good for the country as a whole. In fact, it should be a goal to attract the telecommuters of the internet age.

So, I still maintain that it depends.

Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

Telecommuting does not exempt one from requiring proper labor and immigration status. Onshore Belize is not a commercial free zone.

So, Chris, you're saying that if one does all one's work on-line with companies and individuals outside Belize and if one's income is all outside Belize and if one gets all revenues deposited in banks outside Belize and if one pays taxes in another jurisdiction, that person still requires a Belize work permit?????

Odd interpretation!!!

Knowing first hand regarding working via internet from Belize for a US-based company I can tell you that NO government in this ever-shrinking world in which we live has figured this one out. Put it this way - if you were an American author who went to France to write/gain inspiration for your travel book that was being published by an american co, would you truly be expected, and required, to pay French taxes, fees, immigration duties?? In my mind, it's exactly the same.

Wait a minute, are you guys saying that some of you are aware of someone working in Belize without a proper work permit?

Isn't that illegal?

And you all aren't rushing to the proper authorities to immediately turn them in?

Oh my gosh! Call in the baiters and name callers. Where's immensing (sp?), where's bywarren, where's the guy who printed that I should "just stay home" in the Sun.
