The government in the Cayman Islands plans to change the present visa requirements for Jamaicans by January.

Premier McKeeva Bush announced at the Northern Caribbean Conference on Economic Co-operation, that the change will be made in a bid to improve the country’s business environment.

He said the visa exemptions will be put in place for Jamaicans who hold validated US, UK or Canadian visas.

Bush also announced that a new 1-5 day business visa will be introduced for travellers visiting for legitimate business purposes.

He said the business visa will replace the need for those persons to obtain temporary work permits for short trips to attend meetings or conferences.
