Belize is a country whose time has arrived. The pristine beaches, lush rain forests and abundant wildlife have been largely untouched by civilization. There are many reasons to choose Belize; it is the only English-speaking country in Central America, it’s abundant with programs that ease the process of retirement; the real estate values make sense for a vacation or retirement home; and, there are direct flights from major cities including Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Miami, Newark, Chicago, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
The official language of Belize is English. This means you don’t have to learn a new language to buy groceries, do your banking, or travel around the country. More importantly, real estate contracts are written in English.
The Qualified Retirement Program (QRP) was created to provide incentives to persons 45 years of age or older who would like to live in Belize either part-time or permanently. Benefits include tax breaks, and the ability to import personal belongings, including vehicles, light aircrafts, or boats — all duty-free.
