Caribbean Citizenship by Investment - The Ultimate Guide
Possession of dual citizenship offers great freedom to live, work and travel internationally.
While many of us may not have been fortunate enough to have acquired dual citizenship at birth, it is possible to attain a second passport, in many cases via a substantial investment into a country’s economy.
Citizenship by Investment Programs in the Caribbean
Five Caribbean island nations currently operate Citizenship by Investment programs: Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis and St Lucia.
These five programs offer investors the opportunity to obtain full second citizenship in exchange for a significant contribution to the relevant country’s economy via one of a number of optional investment routes such as a non-refundable financial contribution or an investment in an approved Caribbean citizenship by investment real estate project.
The programs allow qualifying individuals to acquire citizenship of the country for themselves and their close family members. Following a relatively straightforward application process, successful applicants typically receive their new passport in 2 to 4 months and immediately enjoy all the benefits of their new citizenship including freedom to travel widely, tax benefits and the right to live and work in the idyllic Caribbean islands. Residency on the island is not required.
