Hello all,

Myself and my wife want to visit BZ next month for a 4 days initially to check apartments for rent. And then come back duirng November to stay for 8 months.

I have a question.

My wife and myself have 2 personal laptops (they are old; have receipts) and 2 smartphones each. All four smartphones are purchased in 2016; original price is 200 USD for each phone. I have receipt only for one phone; no receipts for rest of 3 phones. They have simcards inside, actively working. We are not brining any camera with us. I have a garmin watch (USD 500), purchased in 2017, no receipt available now. Apart from these - No more electronics. No jewelry or watch on my wife.

Do we have to declare the above items when we arrive? how much we have to pay?

Thanks in advnace for any suggestions

Not necessary to declare personal electronic devices. No receipts necessary.

You only need to declare items that will remain in Belize. Your personal items are fine. If nothing is being left behind after you 4 day stay just fill out the form on the aircraft as nothing to declare. Customs duty is only ever due on things that remain in Belize.
We came to the states for our last adventure before we die but as we didn't die yet, there is time for another adventure this time back to Belize.
