Has anyone one with an Indian (or China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka) passport and a valid US visa been to Belize? If so, I would like to know if they had to pay the $1200 BZD ($600 USD) repatriation fees while entering. The consulate website here states there is no fee for valid US visa holders. So the information is contradictory and the Belize embassy in US is not responsive.

    This is likely to be closed, per @pnuts link. If you have a multiple-entry US visa, it would be better to directly query the Embassy of Belize directly. – Giorgio Nov 1 '16 at 20:42

    I did ask the embassy but they did not respond, hence, I was asking if anyone has had first hand experience. The repatriation fee also applies to nationals of China, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. So my question is relevant to half the population of this earth. – Mohit Nov 1 '16 at 21:50
  • Unfortunately, I don't see any indication that the repatriation fee is waived for US visa holders. That's quite expensive, insultingly so, but I don't see anything that says the fee doesn't apply. – Zach Lipton Nov 1 '16 at 22:01
  • @ZachLipton it does show that Visa required, except for Passengers with a multiple-entry visa issued by the USA can obtain a visa on arrival. And, sadly Belize had a history of being a jumping-off point for illegal entry into the US with the result being the heavy 'fee.' – Giorgio Nov 1 '16 at 22:04
  • There is a reference to the repatriation fee being refundable upon exit, but seeing as that is the only reference I can find to that being the case, you may want to seek additional confirmation of this being true. – waiwai933 Nov 1 '16 at 22:32
