Citizenship by Investment - Grenada

Program Overview

A citizenship by investment program (“CBI”) is offered by a nation's government and is commonly called economic citizenship. By making an investment in a country’s fund or an approved real estate project, the investor may be eligible for citizenship in that country. This citizenship provides flexibility, mobility and security. By obtaining economic citizenship, and a second passport, the investor will have more options and freedom to travel.

Grenada is an island nation in the Caribbean, located in the West Indies. It is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Routes To Citizenship: Contribution or Investment

Applicants can choose between two potential routes for citizenship.
These are:

  • A contribution to the National Transformation Fund of US$ 150,000; or
  • An investment in an approved project (real estate) in Grenada of US$ 300,000.

The National Transformation Fund (NTF)

The National Transformation Fund (NTF) is a Government fund responsible for financing projects that will benefit Grenada’s economy and help its diversification. Applicants who choose this route must make a one-time contribution to the NTF. Under the NTF route, applicants may either immediately apply for citizenship, or first apply for permanent residence and apply for citizenship at a later stage.

Approved Project (Real Estate) In Grenada

The process of approving a project for the purposes of citizenship by investment begins with the Citizenship by Investment Committee, which reviews viable projects and recommends them to the Minister. The Minister then decides whether to approve the project, and publishes his or her approval in the Gazette. Currently, the vast majority of approved project consists of real estate developments on the island of Grenada. These include luxury hotels, resorts, and villas.
