Restrictions DO Apply
One thing to remember when shipping overseas is that different country have different restrictions as to what can and can not be imported into their country. Belize has a list of things that they do not allow you to ship. Make sure when you are preparing your shipment you check to make sure you are not including anything that is on their restricted list. If you do, this could lead to them holding your shipment or sending it back.
Taxes and Currency
In any country it’s the job of the government to regulate shipments being imported or exported into their ports. They will thoroughly inspect all cargo and will hold any items that have been improperly declared.
Belize does not have a “de minimis value” on goods that are imported. This means that all imports are subject to any taxes and duties the local customs office may impose. They may do this no matter the value of the imported goods.
When factoring in any possible additional costs you want to make sure of the exchange rate from USD to the country you are shipping to. Belize has a locked in exchange rate, which means you would not have to worry about it possibly changing day by day when you are making a budget. The Belize dollar is equal to $2 dollars for every $1 USD.
