Duty Exemption Application Support
The Duty Exemption Program aims to assist companies within the tourism industry by reducing the expenses associated with improving the services that they offer. The program allows tour operators, tour guides and hotels to receive duty and tax exemption on vehicles and other items. The company sends its letter of application to the Belize Tourism Board and the Belize Tourism Board forwards the application to the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation either supporting or not supporting the application. The Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation facilitates the process by reviewing the application and ensuring that the company submits all the required information. The Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation is then required to write a letter to the Ministry of Finance supporting or not supporting the application.
