An application form must be completed by all persons seeking an extension of their stay to remain on island.
The Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control charges a non-refundable processing fee of KYD $50.00 for the first extension and KYD $100.00 for each subsequent extension thereafter.
The fee does not imply that an extension of stay will be granted as each application is dealt with on its own merits.
The applicant must provide evidence of his/her ability to support themselves in the Cayman Islands. If an applicant is dependent upon hospitality being furnished by a friend or relative, the applicant is advised to have his/her host provide proof of support to avoid delay.
