I know of several groups that have volunteers come to BZ but how do they do it? I feel sure they do not get special visas. When I use to get my passport stamped it states
"remitted to remain om the condition that the holder does not enter info employment paid or unpaid does not engage in any business or profession with out consent of the director of immigration and doe not remain any longer"----then the date

How do people get around this rule for volunteers?

You need to get a volunteer work permit to volunteer legally. You might get away without but if you get caught...

We brought many teams into Belize and before the teams arrived we got permission from the GOB ministry that they would be under. For teaching teams we worked with the ministry of education. For doctors and dentists we worked with the ministry of health. They would tell us where and what we could do with the teams.

We live in PG so it will be different ministers. Check with SP town council and they can let you know the appropriate ministers names.
