Overstayer wants to return to Cayman

| 21/05/2017

I was on island in 2013 and overstayed because I had no job and could not buy my plane ticket. Can I apply for another work permit or visa?

Auntie’s answer: This is one of those good news/bad news scenarios. An immigration department official explained that you can apply for another permit or visa to come here.

And now the bad news: When considering your application, the department will consider the fact that you overstayed when you were here last, as well as the circumstances under which you exceeded the limit of your permitted time. These conditions include how long you actually overstayed and the reason why you did not leave Cayman when mandated.

    So you had no job so couldn’t afford the ticket, but you could afford rent, food, utilities…despite the very high cost of living. Hmmm.

    I would suggest they wait until after the election and depending on who wins, ask for a status grant.

    why was this person allowed to come in to our Country on a one way ticket to start with?

    when visitors arrive are they are given a certain amount of time? Does the Immigration not have a system in place that each day pulls up the information on the due dates visitor should leave?

    Goodness peace man. We can do better than this.

      A scenario could be that they were on a permit, but then no longer had said job and did not attend immigration to get their extensions. Or maybe they did, but did not continue to get them and tried to hide from the matter.

    Given the past reasons, unless they have won the lottery, let’s hope the application is refused.

      There’s more than enough lawlessness going rampant here. No need to import it. There will be more.
