Jamaican nationals who visit the Cayman Islands are set to benefit from a change in visa requirements at the start of the new year.

Cayman Premier McKeeva Bush has announced that local authorities are to change the present visa requirements for Jamaicans by January.

He said the change was being made to improve his country’s business environment.

The Cayman Premier said visa exemptions will be put in place for Jamaican Nationals who hold valid United States, United Kingdom or Canadian visas.

He also announced the introduction of a new 1-5 day business visa for persons travelling to the country for legitimate business purposes.

The announcement was made at the recent Northern Caribbean Conference on Economic Co-operation held in Grand Cayman which facilitated 160 representatives of government and the private sector from across the sub-region.
