The Cayman Islands is a British Overseas Territory.
The territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
The islands were discovered in 1503 and were initially known as Las Tortugas because of the large number of sea turtles living on them or in the waters around them.
The Cayman Islands are also called “Switzerland on the Caribbean” because of the numerous banks they host (nearly all major banks have their branches on the islands).
The standard of living on the Caymans is among the highest in the world.
Crime and security
The public security in the country is up to par.
On the island the vehicles go on the left side.
Visitors wishing to drive on the Caymans must have a temporary permit issued by the police station or a car rental agency.
The permit is issued for a fee and a valid national driving license.
Vehicles can only be rented to people above 21 years of age.
The hurricane season in the Caribbean is between June and November but the Cayman Islands often escape the worst damages of the tropical storms and the hurricanes in the region during the rain period.
Travel papers and visas
A traveler should have a valid passport for a minimum of six months on the date of entry.
Bulgarian citizens do not need a visa to visit the Cayman Islands.
There is a requirement for a return ticket.
Any person above 12 years of age must pay an exit fee upon departure from the islands.
The emergency line is 911.
Certification and Legalisation
In order to be valid in Bulgaria and recognized by the Bulgarian institution, any documents issued by the authorities in the Cayman Islands must bear the stamp of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. After that they should be certified by the Embassy of the Cayman Islands in Havana, Cuba. The signature and certification of the Embassy of the Cayman Islands in Havana should be certified at the consular service of the embassy of Bulgaria there.
The documents should then be translated into Bulgarian by an authorised translation agency in Bulgaria and certified by the Certifications and Legalisations Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
