Is Belize Caye International Bank back in business ?

Hello to all,


A couple of months ago, I put in a request with Caye International to open an account for either a Nevis LLC or Nevis foundation.
I got a reply that it was not possible.
At the same time, I read on this forum that they were closing accounts and were no longer able to send wires - and basically were blocked.

Today, out of the blue, I got this email below. From no account possible, everything seems possible, even remote.
Anyone know if they are back in business or still suffering from boycot-like actions ?

Hello, so... My funds are going to be safe with them once I make important transfer to a Caye Int. Bank account? I mean, are these banks trustable fraud free?

Nothing is safe with the offshore banks now a days. You always want to do precautions to avoid any unexpected issue later on.

For now they are in operation but now one can say that they are safe, just want to point this out for you :)

You are right. Certainly. Thank you. I have some experience with Lloyal Bank in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. They were ok, until they had the very same issue of changing correspondent banks to partner with them and kinda froze the accounts for about 5 months. I was able to still use my debit card from that account. Then the issue was solved and all ok again. Later after I closed my account, they were flashed out by some authority for supposedly supporting money laundry and again, accounts frozen. Don't know what you know about them? Regards

The fact that Caye Bank is having on and off problems with correspondent banks should tell you enough. You are just playing Russian roulette with your money. The recent history of how it went with banks in Belize doesnt predict any good for the future

@unicorn Let us know how it goes with that bank.

I wouldn't keep any real money there right now. But if they allow you to bank a Nevis Foundation and the foundation will hold non-bank assets then seems ok. Perhaps you can check with them if wires sent out will be in name of Nevis Foundation otherwise its of limited use in todays world.

Just google Choice Bank, Atlantic International Bank, Heritage Bank, Belize Bank International. Not much offshore banking left there. There is a general crack down on banking in Belize so I wouldnt risk depositing my money. Their correspondent banks are derisking which can make it difficult to get your money out again.

Good day Unicorn,

I would like to discuss your concern further. Can you kindly email me at [email protected]

To let everyone know on this forum, Caye International Bank has been in operation since 2003 and named Best Offshore Private Bank for three consecutive years and fully operational since then.

I will await your email.

Enjoy the day ahead.

You need to think what your options are once they stop paying you the money or they vanish. How will you recover anything from the Belize Island?

I tried to open bank account at Caye International but failed. They requested many docs and even I submitted all of it they rejected me without no reason.
