Restrictions for Sending Money

The Belize Central Bank restricts the flow of funds out of Belize by ensuring that outflows via money transfer companies does not exceed inflows. This creates a situation where the Western Union network has to be monitored daily to ensure that this balance is achieved.

Agents can provide Central Bank of Belize permits up to $BZ1000.00 ($US500.00). To send larger amounts permits must be secured from the Central Bank of Belize.
