No-ImageAccording to a report on numerous Mexican news outlets, authorities in Mexico have approved that a Non-resident fee charged to tourists and visitors be applied to Belizeans travelling into Mexico.


For many years, Belizeans have been exempted from the fee, due to the impact Belizean visitors have on the economy in Quintana Roo, but a recent decision will see the exemption removed and the 400-800 pesos fee applied.


Business and tourism representatives have warned officials that the decision will dissuade Belizean visitors and will have a long-term negative impact on their economy.


Officials report that monthly, some 25,000 Belizeans visit Quintana Roo for touristic purposes. This boosts the economy by some 40 million pesos, however with the new measures, it is expected that the number of Belizean visitors will drop to an all-time low.


We will have more in this issue in tomorrow’s newscast.
