(1) Every traveler recorded as a visitor by the Cayman Islands Immigration Department has been counted as a Tourist Arrival in this report.

(2) All users of this data should be aware of the following:
(a) Pursuant to the Cayman Islands Immigration Law (2013 Revision), a Tourist Visitor is defined as a person arriving in the Islands for a visit of not more than six months duration otherwise than for a professional, financial trade or business purpose or for the purpose of seeking or engaging in employment.

(b) A Transit Passenger as per the Cayman Islands Immigration Law (2013 Revision) is defined as a passenger who has arrived in the Islands for a period of not more than twenty-four hours, is in possession of the required travel documents and is on his way to a destination other than the country from which he arrived.

(c) In cases where persons travel to the Cayman Islands for business and do not require any special immigration authority other than permission given to land, these persons are considered visitors and not in-transit regardless if they remain in these islands for 24 hours or less, as a result of the Cayman Islands being recorded as their intended destination and not a transit point to another foreign country.

(d) It is by way of lawful discretion of the Immigration Officer to make the determination of the category of visitation a traveler is landed in the Cayman Islands.

(3) Due to potential errors in the collection and recording of this data, there may be minor reporting errors within these summary statistics.
