As the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) continues to work with stakeholders to rebuild the tourism industry, we hereby provide the following reminders to tour guides:

1. Your current license expires August 31, 2021, as such, kindly submit your completed and signed application to [email protected] on or before the expiration date.

2. When your application is being processed, you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of your application.

3. Kindly monitor your email for status updates regarding you tour guide application/license from the BTB.

Other Notes:

- Kindly include in the subject line of the email, “Tour Guide Application, Name and License number”.

- Any tour guide who applies for renewal after August 31st and any new tour guide applicant will be required to submit all supporting documents and make payment of the prescribed fee.

- If you have a “Yahoo” email account, kindly review your spam box for emails from the BTB regarding status updates regarding your tour guide application/license.

(N.B. Any Tour Guide who fails to complete the entire renewal process before August 31, 2021 and continues to operate is deemed to be operating illegally. It is an offence to operate without a valid license and any person found guilty of said offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine and/or to imprisonment.)
