Why Caribbean Citizenship is So Popular


Having citizenship in the Caribbean has become very popular, with more advertising and discussion of the benefits of a Caribbean passport being detailed on travel and business websites. While the countries and islands in the Caribbean are beautiful, the biggest reason why becoming a citizen of one of the islands is becoming so popular is due to the Caribbean CBI programs (Citizenship by Investment) available. 

To understand why the Caribbean citizenship programs are the key to the region’s popularity, we’ve detailed the different Caribbean countries’ citizenship benefits and how to become a citizen yourself.

Who Offers Economic Citizenship in the Caribbean?

Out of the countries in the Caribbean, there are three primary nations that offer Citizenship by Investment programmes contributing to the region’s popularity:


Out of the roads that lead to becoming a Grenadian citizen, such as marriage, the country’s economic citizenship programme is the fastest route to a passport. There are requirements, such as being at least 18-years old and having no criminal record, and the applicant must make an investment in either a government-approved real estate development or a national fund.

Dominica’s CBI programme is known for its affordability and flexibility, as well as a more efficient way to gain citizenship and a passport than other means of becoming a citizen. As with any economic citizenship programme, there are requirements and costs associated with the process.

St. Kitts & Nevis

The two-islands nation offers the oldest Citizenship by Investment programme in the Caribbean and give two routes to become a citizen through it, an investment in a government-approved real estate development or a donation into a government fund. As with Grenada and Dominica, there are requirements and associated costs that the investor must fulfill before the application can be approved.

Advantages of Investment Caribbean Citizenship Programs

Most people interested in becoming a Caribbean citizen choose the real estate investment route as it allows the investor to resell their share and recoup the costs initially spent. Beyond those major benefits, there are advantages given to the citizens of all three Caribbean countries:


The greatest benefit to Grenadian citizenship is access to the US E2 Visa, which allows the holder to live and work in the United States as well as open a business or expand into the U.S. To read more about the many benefits of having an E2 visa, we encourage you to read here: E2 Visa – Learn About The E2 Investor Visa Available In Grenada

Other benefits given to Grenadian citizens include:

  • Visa-free travel to over 140 countries, including the United Kingdom, the Schengen countries, China and others
  • Citizenship for life that extends to your descendants and dependants. 
  • Allows for dual citizenship

  • No residency required
  • Efficient taxation that helps grow your wealth

St. Kitts & Nevis

The advantages of holding citizenship in St. Kitts include many benefits that are shared by other Caribbean countries, though their passport will grant you access to different nations than the others. The benefits of successfully applying to the St. Kitts Citizenship by Investment programme include:
