Belize Departure Tax (July 2018)

When flying from Philip Goldson International Airport Belize departure tax may already be in the cost of your ticket, however this is not always the case and you should check on this before your departure flight, as this tax is only collected in CASH and no credit cards are accepted.

Admittedly much confusion arises from the breakdown of Belize departure tax fees as some are posted in Belize dollars and others in US dollars.

Every traveler leaving by air from Belize via the Philip Goldson International Airport, whether local (Belizean) or non local (US or any other country) are required to pay the Belize departure tax. The current rate breakdown is listed below.
