So? My husband and I would like to spend a month in Belize in March 2010. He is a mechanic/ handyman/ mari-time operator and has more energy than I'd like to admit and would need some kind of labor to do if we stay that amount of time. We would be interested in exchanging housing for labor. Whatever is needed. He would be willing to work 30-40 hrs./wk. I'm not interested in violation of labor laws / visa regs... just a genuine need. We have two young children and need the location to be approriate. If you know any such situation- rsvp-

Nice attitude!

Wonder what they would say if I posted the same thing in their hometown (especially if I was born in Central America).

Simon, you are a friend, but you need to take a deep breath and ease up

Sorry, but after seeing all of the difficulties that Belizean friends of mine have encountered just entering the US or Canada (not a chance) never mind working there it ticks me off when someone explicitly says they are looking for work here no matter the laws. If they were asking for advice on permit requirements it would be a whole different ballgame.

i have to agree with simon...i wish that the u.s. had the same rules as belize does...anyone can come in and have more rights than the citizens do....belize on the other hand, doesn't want anyone that can't sustain themselves for a year...another burden per se...u have to go thru the process, and once you do!!!!i tried for residency back in 2004, and failed, cuz i listened to others, instead of myself...i have another shot now and i will make it this time...u have to abide by the rules, don't cut corners....

Simon, you delivered food to Rykat and you didn't take advantage of the situation? Or maybe you did. You'll have to tell me in person. Don't every try to have a rational discussion with rabidly mean and irrational people. It is pointless.

Kerry. Good luck with your next residency attempt. I'll miss the grits but we'll be glad to have you back in Belize.
