Cayman Islands Permanent Residency

Cayman Islands Permanent Residency

Cayman Islands permanent residency can be achieved through engaging in the country’s investment immigration program. The applicant is required to make a substantial monetary investment in a licensed employment generating business in the Cayman Islands, and on approval of the investment, the applicant will receive a Certificate of Direct Investment (CDI). The process of obtaining Cayman Islands permanent residency can be relatively complex and it is therefore recommended to seek the advice and guidance of a professional consultancy company.

The Cayman Islands Investment Program

The Cayman Islands offers foreign nationals the opportunity to obtain permanent residency status for a period of 25 years (renewable thereafter), through investing CI$2.4 million (US$2.86m approx.) into a licensed and employment generating business in the Cayman Islands. The investor is required to have a personal net worth of at least CI$6 million (US$7.15m approx). By investing the required sum of money into a business, the applicant has the right to reside with his family in the Cayman Islands, and to work in the invested business, for 25 years.

It should be noted that in order to maintain a Certificate of Direct Investment, the employment generating business invested in, must employ a workforce of which at least 50% are Caymanian employees.

Advantages of obtaining Cayman Islands citizenship:

  • 25 years permanent residency given to the applicant and his family
  • The applicant can work in the business invested in without the need to obtain a separate work permit
  • Eliminates the hassle of having to apply for a work permit every year
  • Ability to buy property here
