Whether it’s by air or sea, there are companies you can trust. Further explanation of importing your goods duty-free and the process of clearing them through Cayman Customs is also explained in the link below.

Shipping to Cayman & Duty Costs


Something unique from other Caribbean islands is that Cayman drives on the left-hand side of the road. The vast majority of people on the road in the Cayman Islands are driving cars but you will see a few motorbikes and bicycles and public transport is also available. To learn more about Cayman road rules we invite you to click here.

Driver's Licenses

You can drive on your domestic license in the Islands for a period not exceeding three months. After which, to successfully carry out what is known as a ‘Geneva Transfer’ (exchange of a foreign driver’s license for a Cayman Islands driver’s license) new residents must visit any of the Department of Vehicle & Driver Licensing.

Importing Pets

Yes, your Fur Friends are invited, too! Get started now as you will need at least six months to complete the import process. All dogs and cats entering the Cayman Islands must have an import permit issued by the Cayman Islands Department of Agriculture (DOA). You must provide evidence that your dog or cat complies with all of the import requirements before an Import Permit is issued. To start this process, contact our team at innovate@caymanenterprisecity.com
