Cayman’s PIVAC agency is all about helping businesses with their admin. “PIVAC stands for Passport, Immigration, Visa and Company Registration,” said Director, Administrative Clerk, and Sales Agent Petrena Harwood. “We specialize in British and Caymanian Passports, and we do the entire line of immigration documents. We do visas such as US visas, Canadian visas and English visas. When it comes onto administration, we target small companies mainly, who needs an admin assistant, and who don’t really want to employ a full time-admin person. So we will be your administrative agent outside of your office.”
But PIVAC is not just for people who already own businesses; it is for people who are thinking of starting them, too: “We do company registration, so if you want to incorporate a business, even if you want to operate as a sole trader, even if you just have the idea, we will give you a one-time free consultation where we sit and we talk to you. We hear your idea and then we give you some tips on moving forward.”
PIVAC can charge per admin task with a set fee, for example a 150 dollar paperwork fee for putting in a work permit. “We gather your information, we complete your work permit forms and we take them to immigration. We don’t compile them and then wait until once or twice per week, as long as your stuff is completed and all your documents are completed, we take it right away to immigration, Ms. Harwood explained. But PIVAC also offers a regular, monthly fee for covering all a business’s admin needs, which will vary depending on the size of the company.
