Comprising the main island of Grenada plus the smaller islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, tiny Grenada is without a doubt one of the most beautiful destinations in the region.
The breathtaking landscape features majestic mountains covered in a thick carpet of lush greenery, 15 cascading waterfalls and rushing rivers which descend to 40 pristine sand beaches. Sailing boats bob on the surrounding waters highlighting the way to the dive sites that lie just off shore.
Besides natural beauty, the country has much to offer. Grenada is safe and secure, charming and authentic. Life on the island is relaxed and laid back. Above all, its people are friendly and welcoming.
Taking all these factors into account, Grenada is a wonderful place to live.
Citizens of the USA, Canada, UK, and member countries of the Commonwealth and CARICOM can stay in Grenada on holiday without a visa for up to 3 months.
Entering the country as a tourist should therefore be sufficient for those who plan to spend vacations (and do not intend to work) on the island.
If you would like to stay longer you must apply to the Grenada Immigration Department for a visa extension.
Individuals who have lived in Grenada for 2 years lawfully can apply for permanent residency.

Another way to move to Grenada is to apply for Citizenship.
Individuals who have resided in Grenada for 7 years (including 2 years as a permanent resident) can apply for citizenship by naturalization.
A fast track approach is also available to financially self-sufficient individuals via the country’s Citizenship by Investment Program.
This program offers qualified investors the opportunity to obtain full citizenship of Grenada in exchange for a significant contribution to the nation’s finances, either through a financial contribution to a government fund or via investment in approved Grenada real estate.

Grenada is a beautiful destination and there are fantastic places to live across the destination.
Traditionally, the south of the island is the most popular location for overseas investors buying property in Grenada.
The southwestern tip of the island including areas such as Grand Anse, Morne Rouge and True Blue and the southern coast from Lance aux Epines to Petit Calivigny, Fort Jeudy and Westerhall, is particularly popular.
These areas offer real estate in prime waterfront and beach-view locations, as well as proximity to beaches such as Grand Anse, the capital St George’s and Maurice Bishop International Airport.
For those looking to get away from it all in a haven of tranquility, take a look at Bathway and Levera in the northeast of Grenada as well as the picturesque smaller sister island of Carriacou in the idyllic Grenada Grenadines.
