With its stunning beaches, tropical climate, and welcoming atmosphere, Grenada offers a unique opportunity for individuals and families looking to secure a second passport through investment.

CBI is a legal process that allows individuals to obtain citizenship of a country by making a significant financial contribution to its economy. Grenada, like several other nations, has established investment programs to attract foreign investors and boost economic growth. These investment programs typically require applicants to invest in government-approved projects, such as real estate development or job creation, in exchange for citizenship rights.

Grenada's Citizenship by Investment Program, for instance, offers several investment options, including a real estate investment of at least $220,000 or a non-refundable donation to the National Transformation Fund, among others.

FAQ

How Long Does It Take To Obtain Citizenship Through Investment In Grenada?

The time required to obtain citizenship through investment in Grenada primarily depends on the type of investment you choose and the processing speed of your application. Generally, the process can take approximately 4 to 6 months from the submission of your application to receiving your Grenadian citizenship. However, it's important to note that this timeline can vary, so it's advisable to consult with an authorized agent or the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Unit for the most up-to-date information on processing times and requirements.

Can I Include My Spouse And Children In My Citizenship Application?

Yes, your spouse and dependent children can usually be included in your citizenship application for Grenada's citizenship by investment program.

Grenada enables the main applicant to include immediate family members in the same application, such as a spouse and dependent children under a specified age. This permits your family to gain Grenadian citizenship as a group through your contribution, but it's important to note that each family member will contribute to the overall investment required for the process. It is recommended that you check the program's precise qualifying criteria as well as the investment amounts connected with each family member beforehand.

The investment paid as part of the citizenship application process is often regarded as a commitment to the Grenadian government or an authorized agent and is not refunded in the event that the application is denied. As a result, before proceeding with the investment, candidates should carefully consider their eligibility and the program requirements. It's also worth noting that credible consulting businesses, such as ours, take steps to assure a high level of success while minimizing the odds of rejection, often keeping a track record with less than a 1% rejection rate.
