Grenada is an independent state and member of the Commonwealth. Citizens of this Caribbean island enjoy visa-free travel to over 127 countries, from Hong Kong and Singapore to the UK and EU member states. This also extends to the People’s Republic of China –– a rare privilege.
Grenada’s Citizenship-by-Investment Program was re-established in 2013 under the Citizenship-by-Investment Act (no 15 of 2013). Government established the National Transformation Fund (NTF) to fund approved projects in the country. Applicants are expected to contribute financially to the country by either buying real estate or making a non-refundable contribution to the NTF. Applicants that pass the application process and due-diligence checks are granted full citizenship.
