Ever dreamt of living in the Cayman Islands? Well, now you can (and it’s a lot easier than you might think)!
The Cayman Islands Government recently launched the Global Citizen Program, a new initiative that allows you to work remotely from our COVID-free* paradise for up to two years, without the hassle of complicated permits or citizenship.
*For updated information on COVID-19 in the Cayman Islands please visit https://www.exploregov.ky/coronavirus and for travel-specific information please visit https://www.exploregov.ky/coronavirus-returning-from-overseas
Global Citizen Program
The program is designed for remote workers and families who’d like to enjoy a lifestyle of luxury and leisure, while protecting themselves from COVID-19. Cayman is happy to report zero active community cases, so you can rest and relax knowing you and your loved ones are safe.

How Plantana Can Help
Plantana is the perfect place to start your journey. Because we offer short-term rentals, you can take advantage of a special quarantine package for a 28-night stay. The first 14 nights will be your quarantine period, then use the second 2-week period to explore the island, get familiarized, and find a permanent home that suits your needs. The best part is… your quarantine period, up to a maximum of 14 nights will be completely free if you stay with us for a minimum of 28 nights in one condo. Visit our specials page to learn more!
With our many condo options and close proximity to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, schools and spas, you can live like a local at Plantana.
