Citizenship by Investment


Brief Introduction: Grenada gained independence in 1974 without breaking formal ties to the British Commonwealth. Grenada is an island nation made up of the island of Grenada and six small islands at the south end of the Grenadines in the Caribbean Sea. Often called the “Island of Spice”, the nation is one of the world’s top producers of nutmeg, mace and other spices. Grenada is attractive for the option for Grenadians to apply for E-2 USA ‘Investor Visa’ to reside in the United States. Grenada citizenship applicants obtain an irrevocable citizenship and passport without having to reside in the country or renounce their current nationality.


Grenada is an island nation made up of the island of Grenada and six small islands at the south end of the Grenadines in the Caribbean Sea. Often called the “Island of Spice”, the nation is one of the world’s top producers of nutmeg, mace and other spices.

An estimated 110,000 people call the 133 square miles of Grenada home. Many of them live in and near St. George’s, the capital city. English is the official language used in government, but Grenadian Creole is the most common language heard on the streets. Perhaps 10 to 20 percent of the population speaks French Patois.

Tourism is the economic engine behind the nation’s economy, which is based on the East Caribbean Dollar (XCD). A large cruise ship pier accounts for a recent increase in tourism on the island. Other visitors arrive at Maurice Bishop International Airport and can connect with nearby islands as well as to Canada, Europe and the United States.

The nation has a rich and vibrant history that has developed largely because of its unique past. Once a French colony, then a British colony, Grenada became independent and was then reorganized with the influence of the United States. Stable and democratic since 1983, a prime minister leads the nation.

As a commonwealth, however, Grenada citizens are subjects of the British monarchy. As part of the Commonwealth, Grenada’s citizens are mostly of mixed descent due to the island’s varied cultural heritage. Today, there are many citizens of African and Native American descent, as well as those whose ancestors came from France and England.

The Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program is protected by Grenada’s legislation, namely the ‘Citizenship by Investment Act 15, 2013’. This law is documented and published and forms part of the laws of Grenada as framed and approved by the national parliament. It stipulates that any person can apply for naturalization and may be eligible for Citizenship on a payment of fees if the Government is satisfied that such person has invested substantially in Grenada.
