For persons already residing in the Cayman Islands for at least three months as a work-permit holder, or staying for six months as a visitor, this page details how and where such persons can apply for a Police Clearance Certificate (PCC).
The new Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) Police Clearance Certificates (PCC) process is now completely digital. Due to this, the format of certificates now have electronic signatures - no stamps are required.
The turnaround time for PCCs is now estimated to be 10 business days. Clearance certificates are valid for three months from the time they have been generated, or for one trip if travelling on a visa waiver. Also, there is no longer a pick-up option available (as there was previously from the Criminal Records Office in Windjammer Plaza on Walkers Road, George Town), so when you submit a request for a certificate online, you can then indicate your preferred method of collection (for example, the PCC can be emailed to individuals, a government entity, or a physical copy can be sent via registered mail domestically, depending on it's purpose).
You will also be given a password to access your digital certificate. If you share your PCC with someone else, you will have to provide them with the password to access it (similar to PDF 'password protected' documents).
To apply, you must upload digital copies of:
- Your passport information page
- Additional supporting documents if your name has changed by marriage or deed poll (also in digital form), and also
- A debit/credit card for payment
See www.eservices.gov.ky to apply. Once you have submitted your application, you will be issued a receipt for any transaction, which you can view, print or save after your payment has been authorised.
