(CMR) WORC (immigration) is reminding the public that police clearance certificates are again required when using their services including work permits beginning February 5. Any previous exemptions are no longer being permitted.
As a collaborative effort between Workforce Opportunities & Residency Cayman (WORC) and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS), customers are reminded that the standard turnaround time when applying for police clearance certificates is fourteen (14) working days.
As of February 5, 2021, WORC will no longer accept the receipt showing proof of payment for a Police Clearance Certificate but will require the actual clearance certificate.
As such, customers are advised to apply in advance for their police clearance to ensure that their certificate can be submitted with the necessary applications. Non-compliance in providing this document will result in processing delays.
