Corporate Services

The Corporate Services Office is responsible for:

  • The legalisation of documents. A public document originating in the Cayman Islands cannot be recognised abroad until it has been legalised by a member of staff who has been duly authorised by the Head of Passport and Corporate Services to sign documents on his/her behalf. These public documents are legalised by the process of affixing of an Apostille or Authentication.

Apostilles :

  • Regular service = $150 per document
  • Express service = $200 per document

Documents should be notarised by a registered notary if document originates from General Registry and not dated within current year, a notary is required. All notarial certificates should be securely bonded to all attached documents with ribbons, or rivets.
