A visa is a permit usually required to enter a foreign country. However, visa-free travel is made possible in different ways with visa- liberalization agreements between two countries. For example, Belize citizens can travel visa-free, with an eVisa, or get a visa on arrival to more than 90 countries worldwide- ranking the Belize passport as the 55th most powerful travel document.

An eVisa is an electronic version of a traditional visa that you can receive via an online application. Usually, you can find the application form on the website of the embassy/consulate of the country you want to apply for, and all you have to do is enter your information and submit your request. 

If your application is successful, you will receive a document or a verification letter of the visa you may be required to print and bring with you when you travel. For eVisas, you have to submit the visa fee online as well.

To get a visa prior to visiting any of the countries mentioned above, you have to prepare for the visa application ahead of time. First, you need to locate a Belize visa office representing your destination country- this could be an embassy or consulate or another official representative. 

Then, you have to prepare the required documents such as a copy of your passport and a filled-out visa application form, photographs, visa payment, and so on. Finally, you can submit your application at the visa office and wait for a reply. The processing time for a visa depends on the embassy and the type of visa you applied for; it usually takes three months up to a year.

Once your visa is issued, you can travel to your chosen country and stay while your visa is valid. Please make sure you do not overstay because if your visa expires and you do not return, you will face fines, deportation, and you may be prohibited from getting another visa to that country.
