Passports & Travel Insurance
PASSPORTS AND VISAS
A current passport is required for Canadian, American, and British citizens for travel in both Belize and Guatemala. For citizens of other countries you must contact your embassy or consulate for entry requirements. We suggest you carry a photocopy of your passport with you while traveling that you keep in a separate place from your original passport, as well as leaving a copy with a friend or family member at home.

**Please note that if you are travelling with children you will require full documentation as well as a notarized letter from the absent parent or guardian approving out-of-country travel.
Travel, Medical, & Evacuation Insurance
On all IE trips, we require you to obtain a short-term traveler’s insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for medical expenses in case of illness or accident while traveling. This policy should cover all medical and emergency evacuation expenses while in Belize.
We also highly recommend you purchase a trip cancellation policy to cover the costs of your international flight and tour with Island Expeditions in the event you have to cancel your trip due to personal or family illness. Your insurance should be purchased within a week of your flight payment and paid trip deposit.
