My wife and I, former residents of Grand Cayman visited your island last week for a quick visit.
Doing the right thing, we visited the License Bureau to get a temporary visitors license to drive a friend’s vehicle. The cost we were told was US$21 each, until the agent at the window told us that since we were ex-residents our cost was CI$150 each! This, even though we were only visiting for one week. She said that in all cases such as this, no exceptions, ex-residents had to renew their expired licences from date of expiry.
This also leads to the question of what address would be on my “new” license. How many fraudulent licences have been issued and are out there around the world?
Cayman must thrive on tourism. Why would the government consent to this unscrupulous legislation and effectively discourage repeat visitations?
(And NO, we didn’t buy in to this cash grab.)
