Country COVID-19 Testing Requirements
Until further notice, it's Discover Corps' Policy that travelers take a COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of departure. Negative test results must be sent to Discover Corps once generated. Please check the Department of State's site for Belize's most up to date guidelines. When applicable, local policy or Airline Policies supersede what is in place for Discover Corps. Note: You do not need to be tested if you've received both doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine.
Belize is requiring that travelers take a COVID-19 PCR test before entry. The test must be taken within 72 hours of your flight to Belize. Negative test results must be submitted to Discover Corps before departure.
Travelers must download the Belize Health application on their mobile device and complete required information within 72 hours of the traveler’s flight to Belize. After completing the form in the health app, travelers should screenshot their unique ID and QR code to show the Health Officer upon arrival in Belize. A negative test will fast track arrival processing. However, depending on the health screening results, the traveler may be randomly selected for secondary testing.
If randomly selected for testing at the airport and results are positive, passengers will be placed in mandatory quarantine for a minimum of 14 days at the passengers’ expense. It is therefore recommended that you explore the possibility of acquiring travel insurance* prior to your trip to Belize. *Travelers can purchase this plan via Arch RoamRight Travel Insurance here.
Effective January 26, 2021, the CDC is implementing that all travelers returning to the U.S., have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of departing. Discover Corps will arrange for the testing to take place within the required timeframe, the traveler is responsible for the testing fee. Please reference Discover Corps' Risk Management Manual for a comprehensive overview of safety & health guidelines here.
