jaguar in the Belize zoo – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingOne of the few laws in Belize that are well enforced is the requirement to have auto insurance. There are police checkpoints throughout the country stopping motorists to verify that they have current vehicle insurance.
 
Most US policies are not valid south of the border, which includes Mexico, Central and South America. 
 
Minimum liability insurance in Belize is inexpensive and can be purchased from insurance offices at the borders or in the towns.  A short one week visitor's policy is just BZ $29 (US $14.50).  A popular minimum coverage policy costs BZ $100 (US $50) per quarter.
 
Comprehensive insurance is available if the vehicle is less than seven years old.  Kelly Blue Book values are used and applicable import duty is figured in.

If you are bringing your car to Belize, you do not need automobile insurance, unless you are planning to keep your car in the country. If you plan to move here, you have to register your car and insure it. You also pay the import taxes that come along with it shipping your car. But if you are here for vacation and you just crossed the country, you already have your regular car insurance from your country.madzda tribute – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Living
 
If you do decide to make Belize your home, then yes, you need Belize car insurance. I paid mine last month and it was about US $250, which covers licensing and insurance. My car is a 2005 Mazda Tribute.
