The Belize Nationality and Immigration Department is celebrating its 26th anniversary on Wednesday June 13th. As part of the celebration countrywide, the government department hosted activities that were opened to the public. The Nationality and Immigration Department was established on June 9th, 1986 under the first Minister of Nationality and Immigration Hon. Dean Barrow.
The office in San Pedro, located on Coconut Drive upstairs of the Scotia Bank, displayed posters which outlined the requirements for obtaining passport, visas and procedure for becoming a citizen of Belize. The purpose of the open day was for the department to share information on the function of officers regarding their duties as Nationality and Immigration officers as well for the department to interact with the public and show gratitude to Belizean people.
The open day ran from 10M to 2PM. The San Pedro Sun congratulates the Nationality and Immigration Department on its 26th anniversary.
