Passports & Travel Insurance


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.

Participants under the age of majority require legal Guardian approval to travel out of country - please check with your school Trip Leader if he/she requires any documention for underage participants.


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.  Most schools will already have insurance that cover their group trips - please contact your School Trip Leader with any questions regarding insurance.
