As the above post says, you enter Belize as a tourist and are allowed to stay 30 days (not 1 month). On the last working day before the 30 days is up, go to the nearest Immigration office and get a new stamp for BZ$50 -- good for another 30 days. After 6 months, you can continue getting monthly stamps, but the price goes up to BZ$100 per stamp. You should be able to continue this up to 12 months at which point you might be asked if you intend to apply for permanent residence. If you say yes, you can continue with the monthly stamps, but you might have to prove that you've actually applied for PR. If you say no, your next stamp might be for less than 30 days and you might be told that you have to leave Belize. No problem -- leave, re-enter and go through all that again.
Also sent you a private message.
