Procedure for Registration of Vessels in Belize

The registration of a vessel in Belize has great advantages. High ratings of Belize flag as well as bilateral agreements with many countries regarding the minimization of various port and anchorage fees considerably reduce operation costs.

The procedure for registration of the vessel in Belize is very simple and quick (minimum bureaucracy). All the necessary originals of documents and licenses may be obtained directly in Designated Office of IMMARBE in Ukraine at the same day of application where documents required for provisional registration are submitted.

According to international rules and regulations of Belize the procedure for the registration of vessels consists of two stages:

  • Provisional Registration
  • Permanent Registration


The provisional registration of the vessel implies the filing of all the necessary documents by e-mail and settling of the relative payment. Within 1-2  working days the originals of all documents and licenses will be dispatched by courier to your address. Provisional registration is valid for 6 months and may be extended if required.

* Please pay your attention that the provisional registration may be effected without Deletion Certificate. In this case an owner has to provide a Letter of Reliance stating that the same will be provided during the provisional registration.

The permanent Registration of the vessel implies the submission of the originals of all documents which copies were provided for provisional registration as per the list.

The period of validity of registration certificates and Radio Licenses of the vessel are unlimited providing that all the required Annual Taxes are duly paid.
