The Cayman Islands – two residency options!

Living in the Cayman Islands: Exclusive residency options

The Cayman Islands, known for turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and a robust economic system, attract wealthy investors and entrepreneurs with two attractive residency options:

1. Permanent residence through real estate investment:

Certificate of Permanent Residence for Persons with Own Property (PR):

Investment: Minimum investment of US$2.44 million (KYD 2 million) in developed properties.

Residence status:
Lifetime residence permit for the holder and his or her spouse.

Path to British citizenship:
Possibility of applying for British citizenship after naturalizing as a citizen of the British Overseas Territories and obtaining a British Overseas Territories (Cayman Islands) passport.

Full British passports available within six years of initial grant of PR.


2. Extended stay due to setting up a company:

Residence permit as part of a Substantial Business Presence (SBP):

Occupation: Senior management position in a recognized company.
Fee: Annual usage fee of at least US$25,000 (KYD 20,925) to the government.

Residence status: 25-year residence permit for the holder and his family.

Path to British citizenship:
After eight years of residence and meeting criteria in the points system (employment, qualifications, etc.) there is the possibility of permanent residence and after a further year of British citizenship.
Timeframe: Full British passports available within ten years of initial SBP grant.

Benefits of the SBP program:

Simplicity: No renewal applications or licensing requirements.
No real estate investment: No obligation to make private or commercial real estate investments or to rent commercial space.

Ability to work from home and relocate global operations to the Cayman Islands.
Attractiveness for family offices: Easy to move and establish the family office in the Cayman Islands.


The Cayman Islands offers an ideal environment for both investors looking for a new home and entrepreneurs looking to expand their business opportunities. The two residency options, PR and SBP, allow individual needs and goals to be met.

Additional Information:

Both options require a good reputation and sufficient financial resources.
Applying for PR and SBP requires the assistance of a qualified attorney or advisor.
