HI, It can be bypassed, but because this vehicle did not come without ac, there is no part number for such a belt in catalogues. So you will need to take a string and run it around the alternator pulley and crankshaft pulley to get the belt length(diagram below has this marked in red) - then go to a parts store and get one in that length.
