In September 2013, the government of Grenada revived a long-standing law allowing citizenship by investment through two options, authorized real estate purchase and through donation to the government Island Transformation Fund. This new launch of the old law raises the minimum real estate investment to US$500,000 and was designed for global citizens who request exclusivity and a fast tracked process to grant citizenship.
Currently there are only a few pending or authorized real estate options in the Grenada program - contact IPD for a full overview.
Grenada Citizenship Fees :
As highlighted, the Citizenship program is by invitation only (contact IPD for more information), and the minimum investment required for a property purchase investment will be US$500,000.This allows for a single applicant to apply, additional fees will be applicable for a spouse and or family members.
Additional fees apply for family members, and are encouraged, as the country favours family group applications.
Larger investment applications are also welcomed. Investments of greater than US$2,000,000 with no upper limit, can be made for larger custom villas or other commercial investments and entitle the applicant or applicants to apply for citizenship. In all of the above cases spouses and children under 25 years may also apply for citizenship.
Grenada Citizenship Process :
The application process is quicker than many other programs, and will be approved within 60 days of submission with your passport issued immediately thereafter.
A Grenada passport allows visa-free travel to more than 100 countries, all EU (Schengen) Countries, as listed, to be on Visa Exemption List by December 2013. The island offers no income, wealth or inheritance taxes.
There is no requirement to visit Grenada in order to qualify for citizenship, although all applicants are subject to a strict background check.
The granting of citizenship is at the sole discretion of the government; there is no guarantee that the applicant will be approved.
