What comes to mind when you think of the Caribbean? Crystal clear waters and sleek superyachts? Incredible sunsets over white, sandy beaches? Lazy, sun-drenched days? Those are all definitely true, but the Caribbean isn’t just an amazing holiday destination.
It’s also the home to many of the world’s earliest, and most enduringly popular, citizenship-by-investment programmes.
Another relative late-starter, the Grenadian second citizenship programme was re-established in 2013. It became popular immediately, particularly among investors looking to move quickly: you can secure Grenadian citizenship in only 60 days. The process is as simple as it is fast – there are no interview, education, residency, visitation or language requirements – so your application can proceed with minimal bureaucracy.
Grenada is an island state in the southeast Caribbean Sea, northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The island is served by direct flights from London, New York, Miami, and Toronto.
As a member of the Commonwealth, the British monarch is Queen of Grenada and Head of State. Grenada is also a member of the United Nations, the Organization of American States (OAS), CARICOM, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, the Non-Aligned Movement and the World Trade Organization. The official currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar, which is fixed to the US dollar: XCD 2.70 = USD 1.00.
Grenadian citizenship-by-investment offers a fast and affordable route to increased global mobility and access to a politically and economically stable country.
FAST, FLEXIBLE, FREEDOM: Obtain your permanent second citizenship and passport in just 60 business days. You’ll receive your permanent residency card without the need to visit or reside in Grenada.
GLOBAL TRAVEL WITH EASE: As a citizen of Grenada, you’ll gain visa-free access to over 120 countries – including the UK and Schengen States, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and even China.
BUSINESS BENEFITS: As a Grenadian passport holder you’ll benefit from no foreign income tax, no inheritance tax, no capital gains tax and no wealth and gift tax. You’ll also be eligible for the USA E-2 Visa allowing you to apply for a Green Card, start a business and live in the United States.
SECURITY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY: Children under 26 or dependent parents can apply to obtain citizenship with you, with the possibility to then relocate to any CARICOM country.
