Cayman Islands ease visa restrictions for Jamaicans

1 Comment
There has been a slight ease in the visa requirements for Jamaicans entering the Cayman Islands. Under regulations approved by Cabinet, Jamaicans younger than 15 and older than 70 will no longer require a visa to enter. According to Caymanian officials, the change was requested as part of an easing of visa requirements sought by the country's government. Immigration law regulations state that all countries within the British Commonwealth can have their nationals land within the Cayman Islands without producing a visa, with the exception of eleven countries, including Jamaica. The change to visa requirements follows the refusal of Cayman Islands Governor Duncan Taylor in September to endorse a Cabinet proposal to ease visa requirements for Jamaican nationals. Governor Taylor cited concerns over national security in doing so.
