Spoke with a rep. from Continental Airlines who stated that Belize had a requirement that visitors have in their possession $50.00 per day of their stay upon entry...discourage beggars. Is this checked?
We will be coming off a cruise and staying on Ambergris for 3 days so we would be entering from the port. Thanks

Yes, it's checked, but randomly. We were never checked, but I'd just show them a credit card or your traveler's checks. How many beggars are going to have plastic??? (Unless they stole it of course) LOL

I've been down to Belize a dozen times and have never been checked... but I am sure there is a first time for everything.

I've never been checked for a return ticket or for money. They only check backpackers or scruffy looking people.

I have over 60 trips thru the airport and I have seen it happen only once and this was about five years ago. Its was a young kid, long hair, backpack only, one of the customs official came up to him and inquired if he had the funds to cover his stay.

The only other time was concerning a round trip ticket purchase. The guy beside us in Miami was raising heck about having to purchase a round trip ticket to Belize. Showed the agent some paperwork and eventually must have been sucessful. However when we landed in Belize here came an airline representative and an immigration official. He had to buy a return ticket to Miami before they would allow him entry.

So it does happen.
