Import considerations for Belize.
You will need to follow the process when shipping your vehicle which also includes a lot of paperwork that must be filed on time and at the right place. Everything will need to be verified through the Belize Customs and Excise Authority before your vehicle can be officially yours to drive in Orange Walk. You will need to provide documentation along with your driver’s license and passport which include:
- The original purchase invoice of your vehicle – this invoice should include the Vehicle Identification Number, the chassis number, the make, model, and year of the vehicle as well.
- Title to your vehicle that is cleared of any liens – or if there is a lien, you will need to provide authorization from the lender who has the lien documenting permission to import your vehicle.
- License plate.
- Proof of insurance.
- Emissions Certificate.
It takes approximately fourteen days to receive your vehicle in San Ignacia, as long as there are no delays due to weather. It’s important to note that delays are common during certain times of the year due to weather. Once the vehicle has passed customs, you will need to pay all duties before the vehicle can be handed over to you.
Shipping your Vehicle requires that you choose what method of shipping you prefer. You will have two choices; Roll On/ Roll Off method and container method of shipping.
Roll On/ Roll Off, or RORO – Your vehicle will be driven onto the deck of the ship using a set of ramps. It will then be parked on the deck in a bay. Since your vehicle is exposed, it is required that nothing be left inside and your vehicle is completely cleaned before you hand it over. If not, your vehicle will be quarantined while it is being cleaned and allowed to board the ship.
Container shipping – With this method of shipping, you will choose between a 20-foot container and a 40-foot container. Your vehicle will be placed inside along with any personal items you wish to take with you. Once loaded, the container will be sealed and loaded onto the ship for transport. This is the safest way to transport your vehicle however it is also the most expensive.
If you have any questions regarding the laws and custom regulations for importing, you will need to contact the Embassy of Belize for further details.
