The Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control Service (CBC) is kindly asking persons and businesses to refrain from importing non-essential goods via air during the period of the COVID-19 medical emergency, as these items are taking up valuable storage space for essential goods, such as food, water, medical supplies, and COVID-19 preventative items etc.

To accommodate the collection of essential cargo, CBC’s Transit Shed (warehouse) will be open from 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday and 8:30am to 12:30pm on Saturday.  Importers of essential goods are reminded of the daily soft curfew hours of 5:01am to 7pm.
