Key Points

  • The Cayman Islands introduced new TWP application requirements to align with the entire work permit application process


The Cayman Islands government will require employers to advertise a temporary job vacancy through the WORC JobsCayman portal before submitting a temporary work permit (TWP) application beginning March 31, 2023. As a result, all local job vacancies (full-time and part-time) will need to be advertised for a period of 14 days.

Employers who receive a job application from a local employee who does not meet the qualification requirements for the position must submit the rejected applicant’s name, qualifications, working experience, and background, along with the reasons the chosen applicant was hired over the local candidate.

These measures will not apply to TWPs being granted for a period of 30 days or less, particularly for persons traveling for short-term work assignments.

What are the Changes?

The government of the Cayman Islands introduced new TWP application requirements. These measures were made to better align the TWP application process with the entire work permit application process.
