Starting October 1, all passengers arriving to Belize via Philip Goldson International Airport will be required to download the Belize Health App and register for entry into the country. When Belize does welcome leisurely flights again, all passengers will be required to either come with a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of their departure — with which they can use the “fast lane” at the airport — or undergo testing on arrival, according to the Belize Tourism Board. Regardless of nationality and purpose, every traveler must download the Belize Health App; information is not required to be filled out until 72 hours prior to your trip. Once completed, each traveler will receive a unique code as confirmation for successfully meeting all app requirements. While in Belize, the app will be used for daily health monitoring.

Under Development


For each user, the Belize Health App will generate a QR code with a unique ID number. Through this, your unique number will be used for contact tracing while in Belize. At the moment, the Belize Health App is awaiting release from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.

The Belize Health App forms DOES NOT need to be completed more than 72 hours in advance.  If you do so any earlier, the unique code will expire and you will need to start the process over.

Once available, the Government of Belize will share where to download the app, along with a tutorial. Starting October 1, arriving travelers to the Philip Goldson International Airport can access the “fast lane” if pre-registration was done on the app. Otherwise, airport attendants in Belize will assist with the Belize Health App via kiosks on your smart phone, tablet, or other. The app itself is expected to be free of cost and available on most mobile app platforms.
