Cayman Islands Passenger Information Screening has Security Issues

Industry Leading Providers of APIS | Business Aviation NewsDelays caused by manual screening of passenger information in the Cayman Islands has led to a series of talks regarding the use of Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) to handle sensitive information.

Current Chief Immigration Officer for Cayman, Bruce Smith indicated that ‘technical tests’ were conducted to ensure a consistency of information was transmitted and it ‘didn’t work out’.

Cayman Airways were supposed to be the first to implement APIS, to ensure passengers leaving the region were authorised to do so, and not on any ‘watch lists’, but the airline has not had all destinations included in the passenger screening program.

Until an APIS system can be enforced, manual screening is the only way to ensure security checks are made.
