Question
Hello Robert,
I have been a U.S. Dentist for the past 31 years and am in good standing with my state, the ADA, and the Federal Government.  I am curious if the Cayman Island Government would allow me to practice there.  What stipulations would be required.  I am nearing retirement and am wanting to practice eight months out of the year on one of the Caribbean Islands; specifically the Cayman Island.
Thank you for any input,
Craig

There is some relevant information on this on the government website at http://www.gov.ky/portal/page?_pageid=1142,1611986&_dad=portal

The latest version of the Immigration regulations at http://www.gov.ky/pls/portal/docs/PAGE/IMMHOME/HELP/LEGISLATION/IMMIGRATION%20RE(2015%20REVISION).PDF includes the work permit fees for various jobs.  For dentistry the annukal fee is CI$13,650

There is also a recent list of health care facilites (including dentists) at http://www.dhrs.gov.ky/pls/portal/docs/PAGE/HRSHOME/HPC/REGISTERED%20HEALTH%20CA

The Health Practice Commission homepage is at http://www.dhrs.gov.ky/portal/page?_pageid=4201,7261590&_dad=portal&_schema=PORT

I hope this helps!

Regards
Robert
