Rights of Establishment

The Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas establishing the CARICOM Single Market and Economy Article 33 mandates CARICOM Member States including Belize to remove restrictions on the right of establishment of nationals of other Member States. The restrictions referred to in the treaty relates to setting up of agencies, branches or subsidiaries in the host countries without any restrictions.

Belize does not have any restrictions with relation to establishment of a business entity. The Government supports and encourages joint venture and partnership investments as a preferred mechanism for investment capital and also allows for 100% foreign ownership of an enterprise.
