I would think you could, they do an interpol police check on you and if in 15 yrs you are squeaky clean and you have all the other requirments in order, I would think so. Do not be afraid to call immigration and ask, they are a friendly group of people, they may not have all the answers right, and each day you can get a different one. Call Immigration in Belmopan, ask for the Director or his secretary, you dont have to give them your name.

You might also want to do the research on doing business here. It is more than just coming down and opening up shop. A lot more.. Not do dissuage you, but having your ducks in a row will save you time, money and a lot of stress. As a non citizen it will take you longer and in some cases you may be required to have a Belizean national as a partner. good luck. M.

Subject: RE: Residency Question

Hi xxxx,
Work Permits within�2�business days will cost�(800USD) , Residency�within�15 business days�(1,500USD) can apply ten weeks after acquiring the work permit�and Nationality within�30 business days�(2500USD) can apply �10 weeks after receiving the residency.�

Requirements for Work Permit:
Police Record - Will need a copy of passport, 3 Copies of passport size�picture, name of Mother and Father ( I will process this as well)
3 additional�Passport size Pictures
Copy of�Trade License from the business that will be hiring you or your buiness, Additional�copy of your passport Completed application form

Requirements of Residency:
Work Permit,��Police Record, 6 Passport size Pictures,�2 copies of your passport, Completed Application Form

In order to start your own business you will need a copy of your passport and another identification card and to fill out the application form�this will cost 100US

*Also note that you will be required to pay the Immigration of�Belize 250US if a�Belize company is hiring you and 1000-2000US if you own your business.
In order to�expedite the process and you pay the lesser amount I can facilitate you by�using my company to say I will hire you,�this however will cost an additional 350US.

By the way can�you plese tell me your current nationality and what type of business you would be interested in registering if you decide this option.


Looking forward to working with you.

Regards
Danielle�

Caveat emptor. There's a lot that happens here with the right juice to those who have connections.
