I am an Indian citizen resident in the Netherlands on a student residence permit. I wish to travel to Belize for a party. I understand I need a clearence, but do I need a visa for Belize or am I exempted due to my EU residence permit ?

  • Is this permite a card-type or is it a sticker/stamp on your passport?

  • All Dutch residence permits are issued in card format.

    It is going to be an expensive party for the repatriation fee you are due as an Indian citizen.

  • @Uzzide is there no visa Issued in your passport that you needed for entry to the Netherlands before you got your resident permit? I know for my UK Visa I got a 30 day entry clearance visa then I had to collect my residence permit. You could get in touch with the Belize Consulate in the Netherlands to make sure. email: [email protected] phone: (+31) (20) 408 11 75
