Belize Currency and Foreign Exchange Control

The official currency is the Belize Dollar (BZ$), which is officially pegged to USD at a rate of BZD 2 to USD 1 since May 1976.  Most hotels, resorts, restaurants and tour operators accept U.S. currency, traveler's checks or credit cards.

Foreign exchange control exists under the Exchange Control Regulations, Chapter 43 of the Laws of Belize (1980), but all offshore activities are exempted from it.
