Grenada

“Popularly known as the Spice Island for its myriad locally grown spices, Grenada offers one of the most picturesque waterfronts in all the Caribbean. The sublime scenery is just one of the many reasons to visit the three beautiful main islands. Diving, sailing, excellent restaurants, fabulous beaches, and a calendar of unforgettable festivities have fortified Grenada’s status as the preferred destination of many high net worth investors.”

WHY CHOOSE Grenada?

Grenada recognizes dual citizenship, which means investors can still make use of their existing passports.

The Grenadian Citizenship by Investment Programme offers the following prime benefits:

  • Fast processing within four months.
  • Can include parents and grandparents who are below the age of 55, unmarried siblings of the main applicant and spouse as well as children born within twelve months of the granting of citizenship. No requirements for dependent children between the ages of 18 and 30 to be enrolled at an institution of higher learning and for parents or grandparents over 55 years to be fully supported.
  • No requirement to travel to Grenada during the application process.
  • No interview, education or management experience required.
  • Visa-free travel to over 144 countries, including Europe’s Schengen zone, China, Russia, Hong Kong, UK, UAE
  • Grenada is the only country in the Caribbean islands that has an active CBI programme and whose citizens are eligible for the US E-2 Investor Visa, which allows you to start a business and live in the US to operate it.
  • No tax on worldwide income.
  • Lifetime citizenship is irrevocable once granted.

The Grenada Citizenship by Investment Programme was launched in 2013 under the regulations of the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Act. Grenada’s pilot scheme allows qualified investors and their family members to apply for citizenship and benefit from visa-free travel. In recent years tourism has become the leading sector for foreign direct investments in Grenada. Another service sector on the rise is the offshore financial industry, which together with strong performances in construction and manufacturing, have also contributed to growth in national output. As part of its strategy to attract foreign direct investment, the Grenadian government is working closely with a select number of businesses related to tourism, agriculture and manufacturing. Through the implementation of the programme, the government also hopes to create investment opportunities that will bring about sustainable employment. To qualify for citizenship, applicants must fulfill one of the investment options below in addition to the following criteria:

  • Be of outstanding character.
  • Hold no criminal record.
  • Have a high personal net worth.
  • Have excellent health.
  • Real Estate Investment

With its economy shifting from agricultural-dominant to service-dominant, one of the most viable options for foreign nationals is investment in a pre-approved real estate project.

Applicants must invest a minimum of US$220,000, which must be maintained for a minimum of four years. This reduced investment amount means our valued investors take on less risk. The minimum amount includes the main applicant, main applicant’s spouse and two qualifying dependents. An extra US$25,000 is required for each additional dependent.

Note that where an application includes an eligible parent not exceeding the age of fifty-five years, an additional contribution of USD 50,000 will be required to be made with the post approval contribution. Where an application includes an eligible sibling, an additional contribution of USD 75,000 will be required to be made with the post approval contribution.

  • National Transformation Fund Donation

Applicants may donate a minimum of US$150,000 to Grenada’s National Transformation Fund. The minimum amount covers the main applicant only. For a family of up-to four people, the requirement is set at US$200,000. An extra donation of US$25,000 is required for each additional dependent.

Note that where an application includes an eligible parent not exceeding the age of fifty-five years, an additional contribution of USD 50,000 will be required to be made with the post approval contribution. Where an application includes an eligible sibling, an additional contribution of USD 75,000 will be required to be made with the post approval contribution.

Permanent Residency Certificates

The permanent residence status has been removed entirely from the citizenship by investment process. As a result, the government has ceased issuing PR cards and certificates. Updates for an alternative form of national ID will be communicated when received.
