Traveling to Grand Cayman

Because Grand Cayman is such an important jurisdiction for offshore financial services as well as a popular vacation destination, it is particularly well served by international airlines as well as the national flag carrier – Cayman Airways. Visitors to the island need to present a valid passport. Visas into the Cayman Islands are not required for Commonwealth, UK, US or Japanese nationals, as well as nationals from certain other countries. Unless your home country is part of the Visa Waiver programme with the US, a US visa is normally required for travel via the US. It is advisable to double check entry requirements with your travel agent. If you are a visitor to the Cayman Islands you will need to fill in two forms upon entry – a customs form and an immigration form. Please see our Customs Duty page for details on what visitors may bring into the Cayman Islands.
