Immigration Services

Federal immigration law determines whether a person is an alien, as well as the rights, duties, and obligations associated with being an alien in the country. It also provides the means by which aliens can become legally naturalized citizens with full rights of citizenship. It’s hard to travel any distance on any road without passing a vehicle which is registered outside of the Cayman Island, whether this be a HGV or simply a visitor to the Cayman Island. But would you know what to do if you were involved in an accident with a foreign vehicle which wasn’t your fault?

The question of providing insurance cover for any motor vehicle travelling outside the country in which it is registered dates back to just after the Second World War and led to the introduction of the ‘Green Card’ scheme. The main aims of this are:

“To facilitate the movement of vehicles across international borders by the use of an internationally acceptable document proving the existence of insurance (the Green Card or International Insurance Card)”

  • Repeatedly following, communicating with, or watching over someone’s dwelling home
  • Striking, shoving, kicking, or otherwise subjecting the other person to physical contact
  • Engaging in a course of conduct or repeatedly committing acts which serve no lawful purpose

The punishment for rape under federal law can range from a fine to life imprisonment. The severity of the punishment depends on the use of violence, the age of the victim, and whether drugs or intoxicants were used to override consent.

Extradition is the process by which one state surrenders a person to another state for prosecution or punishment for crimes committed outside the state of refuge. The requesting state must request the surrender, and the crime must be punishable by the laws of the requesting state. Extradition is typically enabled by a bilateral or multilateral treaty. However, some states will extradite without a treaty, but those cases are rare.
