Why is Grenada a popular investment location?

Grenada is an island country in the West Indies. Famous for its spice trading business, Grenada is often referred to as the Island of Spice.

The country is also known for its unspoiled natural beauty. This includes white sandy beaches, lush rainforests, majestic waterfalls, historic forts, botanical gardens and coral reefs with the world’s first underwater sculpture park.

Grenada also offers a stable government and currency and a strong tourism industry.

About the Grenada Citizenship by Investment programme

The government launched the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Programme in August 2013 to drive the country’s economic growth through foreign investments.

The Grenada Citizenship by Investment Programme attracts investors from all over the world who wish to increase their family’s global mobility and have the security of a second citizenship.

From as little as $150,000, investors can receive a Grenadian passport and a wide array of benefits. Passport holders are granted visa-free access to over 140 countries, including the Schengen Area, the UK, Hong Kong and more.

How to obtain Citizenship by Investment in Grenada

Investment options

Make a non-refundable contribution to the National Transformation Fund (NTF).

The NTF was established when the CBI programme launched in 2013. The aim of the NTF is to assist in boosting the economy of the country. Both the contribution and government fees are payable only once citizenship is approved.

The minimum contribution to the NTF is $150,000 for a single applicant and $200,000 for a family of up to four (main applicant and three family members). Further costs apply when adding additional dependents on a per-person basis.

Other costs, such as application fees and due diligence fees, also apply.

Real estate investment

Invest in a government-approved real estate project. The investor can either make a joint investment with a minimum value of $220,000 or purchase a free-hold property at a minimum value of $350,000.

The joint investment option is the most common. It includes real estate developments such as hotels, villas, tourist properties and resorts. This is usually the investment of choice due to the lower investment amount and the strong tourism industry in Grenada.

Investors also have the opportunity to re-sell their investment through the scheme after a mandatory holding period, which is between 3 to 7 years depending on the project, without affecting their citizenship status.
