Hi. In 2002 I became a legal resident of Belize. I spent 4 years in the country and left in 2005. Since then I havenít been in Belize. Does anyone know if my residency card is still valid and if I may enter the country without visa and have the same legal status?
Thanks a lot

I don't think the card/residency has an expiration date and I can't imagine you would have any problems using it but then again, I don't work for the immigration department.

Permanent residency is "permanent". If you have a residency card it's not going to expire unless something changes drastically in the future with laws etc .... but I doubt that is a worry.
Come home to Belize!

I believe immigration is no longer issuing cards but rather the status is stamped into your passport. I know of a handful of people's who were made to relinquish their cards and have the status stamped in their passports.
