When you go through customs, you will see two lines... go to the "nothing to declare line." Chances are you will pass right through and not have any baggage inspection at all.  You are a tourist and probably not bringing anything you plan on leaving in Belize. If they do put you in the "other" line, just keep your carry ons over your shoulder and your checked stuff on the cart they provided. They will probably only inspect the stuff on the cart.


Exemptions from Duties and Taxes

The laws of Belize provides for exemptions from duties and taxes for items imported as accompanied baggage of a passenger that includes:

1) Wearing apparel, jewelry, toilet requisites and any portable article reasonably expected to be carried by him for his own private and personal use, and in the case of a passenger eighteen years old and over:
  • Wines or spirits not exceeding one litre in all and
  • Tobacco, not exceeding 250 grams or
  • Cigars, not exceeding fifty, in number, or

  • Goods to the aggregate of BZ $200.00 through an International Airport (BZ$50.00 at other entry points) belonging to a Belizean passenger (including a passenger under eighteen years old) which accompany that passenger and were acquired abroad by him for his personal use or as souvenirs or gifts and admitted as such by the Comptroller of Customs.
