Visa fee reduced

The Immigration Department is moving ahead with plans to modernise and streamline visa-issuing operations to improve the department’s efficiency.

As part of this project, which is being undertaken in collaboration with UK Visas, the body responsible for running the UK’s visa operations worldwide, the fee charged to make a Cayman Islands visa application has been reduced from CI$80 to CI$48, effective immediately, states a press release.

The department will also consider the introduction of a facility whereby visa applications may be submitted and paid for online.
