Belize is home to Embassies and Consulates from all over the world 

by McNab Editorial Team

The tourism industry – assisted in no small part by the stunning natural beauty of the land and the massive adjoining barrier reef – has transformed Belize into one of the most treasured spots to visit in Central America, and it’s rapidly becoming one of the top destinations for everyone from adventure travelers to wedding parties thanks to the stunning natural beauty on display.  But for citizens from massive countries like the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Canada, traveling to a foreign country can be a nervous proposition.  

And that’s especially true when you’re talking about a nation that doesn’t have a presence in the popular imagination. Fortunately, and despite the small size of the country, Belize has worked hard to develop lasting and familiar relations with most of the major nations in the world.  

Embassies in Belize

There are twelve official embassies in Belize, and they represent some of the most meaningful powers in the world. Unlike most of Central America, English is the official language in Belize. Despite the presence of a wide variety of different cultures like the German-speaking Mennonites and Mestizos who blend together native and Spanish cultures, English speakers can navigate their way through Belize more or less freely.  

The official embassies in Belize reflect this linguistic allegiance while still remaining cognizant of their geographic role in the region.  Both the United States and the United Kingdom have official embassies in Belize, as do major international players like Mexico and Taiwan.

Honorary Consulates in Belize

Honorary consulates have the resources and influence to help you if there’s anything you need while away from your home country.  Belize may be a small country that largely earns its international presence from the tourism industry, but that doesn’t mean that it hasn’t built diplomatic relationships with other nations across the globe.
