French consul

Sebastien Guilbard has recently been recognised by the Office of the Deputy Governor as the Honorary Consul for France in the Cayman Islands.

Mr. Guilbard represents France and the French Miami Consulate from the Cayman Islands, which has been his home for the past 10 years. He will hold a reception at Guy Harvey’s Grill on 21 May at 5.30pm with the French General consul from Miami for all French Nationals.

Mr. Guilbard is able to help French Nationals with official documents, as well as any problems or emergencies which arise.

These issues include birth, death or voter registrations, loss of passports or French National IDs, liaising with the Miami consulate during hurricanes and natural catastrophes, as well as assisting French nationals in distress and/or missing persons.

Although French nationals must travel to Miami to renew their passports and IDs, Mr. Guilbard will be able to deliver passports to those residents on Grand Cayman, thus preventing a second trip to Florida.

Mr. Guilbard is the general manager for the St. Matthew’s Residence Hall and Residence Suites. His office is located at 115 West Bay Road, and he can be reached from 8am to 6pm at 949-2118. His e-mail addresses are [email protected] and [email protected]
