If you plan on visiting Belize any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Belize SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.

The prepaid SIM card for Belize is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Belize cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Belize cell phone rental. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of BZ$10 (approx. $5 USD) of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local phone number while in Belize, and free incoming calls. What’s more, you’ll have 24 hour a day access to customer service simply by dialing 08003444235 from your Belize cellular phone. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Belize SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 1900 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.

Adding Airtime

Your Belize SIM card has an initial airtime balance of BZ$10 (approx. $5 USD). Additional airtime credit is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers also called reload codes, not another SIM card, in Belize. These airtime vouchers are available in 3 denominations:

  • BZD 10 (US$5)
  • BZD 20 (US$10)
  • BZD 30 (US$15)
  • BZD 50 (US$25)

To add the voucher, simply scratch off the grey protective layer to reveal your voucher code. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone, the voucher code will credit your Belize SIM card the respective denomination you purchased. These airtime vouchers are available in Belize at local Tabac shops, convenience stores, Digicell shops and all authorized dealers.

Remember you do not need to purchase another SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher! Your incoming calls are always free, even when you run out of airtime!

Service Life

If you do not recharge your Belize SIM card within 12 months, your mobile phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime credit will be forfeit. To get connected again, you will be required to purchase a new local Belize SIM card. The 12 month period starts the day you arrive in Belize and start using your phone.
