Frequently Asked Questions About Grenada CBI

Grenada CBI program allows for investment opportunities through government-approved projects and grants citizenship to investors along with a Grenadian passport. The advantages of both are wide-ranging and give business opportunities alongside benefits for the main applicant and their family. As many investors know, it’s important to understand a process and have any questions answered before moving through it to ensure a successful application and avoid any delays.

Here are the most common questions investors have prior to applying for Grenadian citizenship:

What are the Grenada Citizenship Requirements?

As with any government program, there are numerous requirements that the main applicant must fulfill. Many of these economic citizenship prerequisites help protect the country of Grenada from people who could disrupt the country or abuse the program itself:

  • The applicant must be 18 years of age or older
  • Pass a detailed background check and hold no criminal record
  • Have documentation that supports good character and the source of funds for the investment, such as bank statements and references
  • Be in good health, verified by a physician
  • Be financially capable of making the investment and paying applicable fees

What are the Investment Options for Grenada Citizenship?

There are two routes to apply for the citizenship program in Grenada:

  1. The real estate investment option: making an investment in a government-approved real estate development
  2. One-time donation: contributing a significant donation to a government fund that is used for state-sponsored projects.

While the application processes for each are similar, they do somewhat differ depending on the investment option you take. Both options grant the same benefits of citizenship and you’ll still receive a passport, but the one difference that should be noted is that the real estate investment allows an investor to resell their share after a holding period of 5 years. The donation does not offer that advantage.

What are the Application Fees for the Citizenship Program?

Grenada’s Citizenship by Investment programme is designed with families in mind, which is shown in the associated costs and fees. The cost of citizenship in Grenada below is based on an applicant having a family of four:

  • Cost of share: USD 220,000

What is the Application Process for Grenada Citizenship?

The economic Grenadian citizenship application is reviewed by a government body called Grenada’s Citizenship by Investment Committee, or CBIC, and their duties lie in due diligence, reviewing the information provided, and looking for inaccuracies.

  • Certified copy of ID Card
  • Certified copy of passports
  • Certified copy of Marriage Certificate (if applicable)

  2. Prepare the documents for processing to submit to Grenada’s bank and the Citizenship by Investment Unit.
  3. CBI Due Diligence stage: the application due diligence process can take up to 4-5 months. Upon approval of citizenship, the main applicant pays the remaining balance and applicable Grenada government fees.
  4. Closing & Transfer of Passports: proof of ownership will be submitted to the Grenada government, and you will receive your passports.

What Does a Grenada Passport Provide Investors?

Citizenship in Grenada is coveted for the wide array of benefits granted to its citizens, one of which is holding a Grenadian passport.

There are a host of other benefits granted to the main applicant and their family, including:
