Foreign licensing (was Weather satellite reception or SO-50 in India)

I wish they were all as easy as the Cayman Islands...  literally walked out 
of the airport, turned right, walked about a hundred yards to their 
equivalent of the FCC, in a small building at the base of their radar tower, 
handed them my US license and $25 US, and walked out as ZF2GH in under 5 
minutes!  I really would have liked to get on the air from VU-land, 
though...  it's very much in demand!
