“Kathleen, can you briefly discuss what you consider the best residency options for expatriation to Belize?”
–Zara G., United States
This question is being answered in complete detail by top Belize residency experts live as part of this week’s Live and Invest in Belize events taking place in Belize City.
The short answer is: You can retire to Belize as a Qualified Retired Person (QRP) and enjoy some tax and other benefits. For this you must be able to show a guaranteed income (from any source) of at least US$2,000 per month.
Or you can simply show up in Belize, enter the country as a tourist, and renew your tourist status monthly for a year. At the end of the 12 months of renewals, you’ll be granted regular residency. This requires monthly trips to immigration in Belize but does not require any minimum income or investment.
Again, though, both options are being discussed in full as part of the goings-on in Belize City this week. We’ll be able to make the recordings of those proceedings and all presentations available as part of our all-new Live and Invest in Belize Conference Kit starting next week. Watch this space.
