Work permits range from one to six month temporaries, to work permit grants which can be annually renewed. It is necessary for a non-Caymanian to provide the employer with certain documentation for a work permit application, however it is the financial obligation of the employer to pay for all work permit fees.

Temporary Work Permits

The most common type of temporary work permit extends for a period of 180 days. The application process includes various forms that need to be completed. A medical examination and a police clearance certificate are just two parts of the process. It is essential that ALL questions be answered and all original lab reports and police clearance certificates are submitted in order to avoid unnecessary delays and complications.

Note: A prospective employee should not normally be in the Cayman Islands when their work permit application is being submitted, nor should they arrive in the Cayman Islands while it is being processed. Exceptions include: those people who are residing in the Cayman Islands as dependants on their spouses work permits and who then decide to apply for a work permit or people who have already completed a work permit on the Island.

Once an employment offer has been secured we can forward all the required work permit forms and detailed checklists via email.

Annual Work Permits – Grants

A work permit grant is generally issued for periods up to three years, at the discretion of the relevant Board. Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the prospective employee must complete the relevant immigration forms and submit original lab reports and a police clearance certificate. Once an employment offer has been secured we can forward all the required work permit forms and detailed checklists via email.
Term Limits

Nine years is the maximum length of time a work permit holder can work continuously in the Cayman Islands. An individual can apply for Permanent Residency after eight years of employment on the island.

Language Requirements

If a prospective employee is not a national of an English speaking country or if English is not his/her first language, he/she may be asked to take an English test upon arrival at the airport. If he/she is found to have insufficient knowledge of the English language he/she may be refused entry.

Dependants

Applications for the inclusion or addition of dependants (spouses and/or children) to a work permit (temporary or a work permit grant) are at the discretion of the Chief Immigration Officer or the Immigration Board. Profession and salary will be considered.
