Customs & Entry Requirements:


US, British and Canadian citizens, and citizens of British Dependent Territories do not require passports, but must present proof of citizenship (passport or birth certificate and current photo ID. A driver's license or voter's registration card alone is not sufficient) and a return or ongoing airline ticket.
Arriving visitors may bring in duty-free any personal items for use while on vacation. In addition, visitors 18 and older can bring in duty-free either one litre of alcohol, four litres of wine or one case of beer (not exceeding eight litres) and 200 cigarettes, or 25 cigars or 250 grams of tobacco.  For more detailed information on Customs & Immigration consult the Cayman Islands web site.


Currency and Exchange Rates:

The currency of the Cayman Islands is the Cayman Islands dollar (CI$).   The Cayman dollar is fixed at a value of $1.25 U.S. dollars, therefore 1 U.S. dollar is worth 80 C.I.   Goods and services are priced in Cayman dollars, but U.S. dollars are readily accepted by merchants and restaurants and converted at the set rate of 1.25 U.S.$ = $1.00 C.I.
British pounds sterling and Canadian dollars are not readily accepted, but can be exchanged for Cayman dollars at local banks.
Note: Banks offer a better exchange rate when converting foreign currency travellers' cheques into Cayman dollars vs. exchanging cash.  For example, you would receive 82 C.I. for a $1.00 U.S. travellers cheque vs. only 80 C.I. for $1.00 cash.
