Belize Health App Available Now
Belize City, Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020: The Belize Health App, a newly launched mobile-based application that is part of Belize's phased reopening plan, is now available for download for both Android and iOS devices. Apple users can find the Health App in the App Store and Android users can download from the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) website. The App can also be downloaded on the Belize Covid-19 website. The Belize Health App was created to allow for daily health monitoring of arriving passengers and for contact tracing, should it become necessary once the country reopens for leisure travel on October 1.
All visitors will be required to download the free Health App on their mobile device and fill in the necessary information no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Belize. After filling out the eight-step application process, a unique QR code will be provided which should be presented to health authorities at the international airport upon arrival.
