Setting up a Business in the Cayman Islands 

Why Cayman Enterprise City?

Unique to the Caribbean, Cayman Enterprise City offers a welcoming and nurturing environment and access to a vibrant business community. Designed for businesses of all sizes and stages, companies from around the globe are invited to establish a physical presence within CEC's award winning special economic zones (SEZs) which include:

A Streamlined Onboarding Process

Our team of global mobility specialists are on hand to help at every step of the way and our custom-built portal ensures a smooth and efficient application process. 


Incorporate your Cayman Islands Company

We will introduce you to a corporate services provider who will incorporate your Cayman company. You will then complete an online zone application with our team who will help you through the process, review to ensure accuracy, and submit this to the Special Economic Zone Authority (SEZA).


Approve your CEC License Agreement

When details of your Special Economic Zone (SEZ) business have been confirmed, including company name, registered office, workspace solution, the term of your agreement, and your chosen start date, our team will create a CEC License Agreement for you to review and approve.


Apply for Trade & Employment Certificates

To operate your zone business, you will need to apply for a Zone Trade Certificate and Zone Employment Certificates/Work Visas. The entire application process typically takes 4-6 weeks and our Client Experience team will help you to prepare, gather, review and submit your applications.


Join the CEC's Special Economic Zone!

Throughout the application process, the CEC team will prepare your chosen workspace solution. As soon as your zone certificates are approved, you will be ready to move in and join the CEC community. Our serviced offices are fully furnished so that you can plug in and begin working as soon as you arrive.
