New permit requirement pressure for small businesses

Chamber president Paul Pearson says Immigration’s revised health insurance requirement will increase the burden on small and medium companies.  He says there will be an additional cost factor involved with the change, plus he says it will further delay the process.  Immigration recently announced proof of insurance will now be mandatory for all permit applications, this includes temporary permit applications.

While Mr Pearson says his members were expecting the change, he says it will make the process time-consuming, which costs money.  “Cayman is set for a boost and so we cannot afford to be complacent and we cannot afford, especially with small and medium business, we cannot afford to have them an extra little cost, extra little cost all those costs adds up,” Mr Pearson says.

Mr Pearson says if Immigration wants to add more documentation to applications it must implement a system to streamline more timely processing.
