Renewing Accommodation Licensing Advisory
Fire and Health Clearances

We remind all proprietors whose Accommodation Licenses bear an expiration date of October 31, 2021 that they must submit a renewal application to remain compliant as per the Hotel and Tourism Accommodation Act (HTAA), Chapter 285 of the Laws of Belize.  

Completed and signed applications along with evidence of payment can be submitted via email to [email protected]

In an effort to mitigate any delays, kindly note the below:   

  1. Fire Clearances- If you have made a request, via email, to your respective Fire Inspector/Officer In Charge, kindly forward a copy of the email to [email protected].
  2. Health Clearances- If you have made a request, via email, to your respective Health Inspector/Officer In Charge, kindly forward a copy of the email to [email protected] . 

Kindly find a list of Fire & Health Inspectors per district/area HERE.

If you have remained compliant as per the Fire and Health Regulations and have had no prior offences, your application will be considered for conditional approval (for up to 3 months). As per Section 10 of the HTAA, once you are in receipt of your Fire and/or Health Clearance, you are to kindly submit a copy of your valid clearances to [email protected]

The BTB reminds you that, as per Section 27 (1) (j) of the HTAA, any accommodation with a license that bears an expiration date of   October 31, 2021 that fails to initiate and complete the entire renewal process but continues to operate, is deemed to be operating illegally and as such will be liable on summary conviction to a fine and/or imprisonment or a violation ticket. 

Please feel free to reach out to our licensing officers at 227-2420 or [email protected].org if you have any questions or concerns.
