VESSEL REGISTRATION FOR BELIZE

Belize

A GUIDE TO THE INTERNATIONAL SHIP REGISTRIES
BELIZE: A PEACEFUL, STABLE AND INDEPENDENT COUNTRY

Belize, formerly British Honduras, is located on the Caribbean coast of Central America, with Mexico to the north and Guatemala forming its western border. The whole coast line is protected by a barrier reef while the inner waters are shallow and dotted with numerous islets. As of 2002 Belize's population was 250,000 approx. Although Spanish, Creole and Maya are spoken, English is the official language.

On September 21, 1981, Belize became fully independent nation which remains a member of the British Commonwealth. The Government is a parliamentary democracy based on the Westminister model, with a House of Representatives, Senate and Prime Minister as head of state. The laws of Belize are based on the British legal system and its Common Law tradition.

In 1989, Belize established an open registry for vessels by authority of the "Registration of Merchant Ships Acts" which regulates the activities of the INTERNATIONAL MERCHANT MARINE REGISTRY OF BELIZE (IMMARBE). Companies with vessels registered in Belize but operating outside its territorial waters do not file income tax returns nor do they pay taxes. Any individual or company, foreign or Belizean, may register vessels in the Belize registry for lawful Maritime Trade and Service. There is a 30 years age limit but no size or type limitations for vessels. A provisional registry valid for 6 months is first obtained then followed by a permanent registry valid for five years.
