As part of its development agenda, the Government of Belize has embarked on an initiative to reengage with the Belizean Diaspora. In this vein, the Embassy, along with the support of Belize’s Honorary Consulates across the United States, is committed to reaching out to the Belizean Diaspora in the United States in order to respond more effectively to their needs. The Embassy is also working closely with several Belizean Community organizations across the United States in recognition of their important role as primary points of contact with the different communities. Indubitably, Belizeans living in the United States constitute a significant economic and strategic resource.
Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega today formally opened a new facility within the Honorary Consulate of Belize in Chicago, Illinois, USA, that has been equipped to enable Belizeans in the area to apply for new machine readable passports.
