The CIGOUK July Newsletter is here, with a personal message from André Ebanks, news on the new TravelTime team, and more!
From July 1, 2020, anyone wishing to travel to, from and within the Cayman Islands, by air or sea, must apply to TravelTime.
Mr André Ebanks
Cayman Islands Representative to the UK and Europe
We’d like to share with you our updates. Please let us know by reply if you have any questions or would like to contribute to our newsletter.
It has been a busy time for all government entities, and we have worked hard as part of a cross-government group to ensure that the processes for the prior Airbridge from London to Cayman on 11 June and tomorrow’s 2 July flight were as helpful as possible. We have cherished many messages of thanks from those who have returned home since the covid-19 global outbreak (a couple of which are set out further below). It has been our absolute pleasure to assist stranded residents return to their homes and families in our beloved Islands.
We are now pleased to pass the baton to Travel Time, at the Ministry of International Trade, Investment, Aviation and Maritime Affairs (MITIAMA), who have assumed this responsibility as of today, 1st July 2020, we are confident of a very smooth and coordinated process going forward and we remain ready to assist Travel Time as needed.
All persons who wish to travel to and from the Cayman Islands until the borders are reopened to normal commercial travel are requested to register via www.exploregov.ky/traveltime (including persons who may have applied under original emergency travel processes, such as our office’s online registration form which will now be terminated). This will enable Travel Time to be the single point of contact for registration and ensure their new register of interested travellers is up-to-date.
The Travel Time team are actively working on the nine repatriation flights scheduled to and from Grand Cayman today through 11th July 2020. The nine round trip flights scheduled are to and from London, England; Miami, Florida; and Kingston, Jamaica.
Flights after the 11th of July are being arranged and will be offered based on demand via the registration process at www.exploregov.ky/traveltime.
All CIGOUK staff are continuing to work remotely. We are fully equipped and remain fully operational. Accordingly, we remain on hand to support you and anticipate no disruption to service or our work with you. We anticipate returning to our offices on 1 September 2020.
As a reminder, our respective contact details are set out below.
