As Ambergris Caye is an international point of entry, make sure to have your passport or copy of when out and about (just in case) you encounter a check point.

How many times have you been asked for your passport Cris? In 18 years I have never carried mine or ever been asked for it,

Is this a test? smile My memory isn't so hot but I do recall I've been asked for it everytime I leave a country and enter another.

I heard a phrase once "There is always a first time".

FYI: Immigration check point by Ramon's and yes, they are asking some folks for their passports (even folks over 18 that have been born here).

You don't need your passport if you have a voters ID card I suppose, or a social security card. If you are wearing a camera around your neck and a loud hawaiian shirt will they know you are just visiting?

They didn't stop us on our bikes. Another good reason to ride a bike!

They were checking bike riders and pedestrians that didn't look like a tourist.Rumor has it there are Guatemalans working and living here illegally.It is not often I see immigration at check points.

I'm a citizen and am asked for my passport regularly. I went to get my new utility meter last week and they asked for it. I open a bank account and they ask for it. I want internet service added and they ask for it.
I registered the title to my property and they want copies of it.
I always say its a travel document and I'm not traveling!
It offends me because i'm a white guy they think i'm a tourist!
Jessy may be your never asked because you never go anywhere but Canooks!
