I understand that new procedures have recently been implemented on land purchases by foreign nationals. The process now requires approval from the Belize Central Bank before the transaction is submitted to the Land Office for final approval. Does anyone have insights about why this new procedure was put in place and what it means in terms of the cost and timing of property purchases in Belize? Thx! JD

There has always been an approval process from Central Bank to make sure cash transfers meet accepted international banking laws. It's part of the normal process and usually takes anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks to approve large transfers. Use a reputable closing agent with an approved escrow account and it will go smoothly.
Stupid should hurt!

Don't think this is particularly new Just possibly bringing it back to public attention. It is just part of the anti laundering rules that they agreed comply with for US banking rules. Central bank is always supposed to have a way to track of large sums of foreign money going through its Banking system.
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.
