What is Grenada Citizenship by Investment (CBI)?

The Caribbean island country of Grenada, nestled between St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago, about a 3.5-hour flight southeast of Miami, is one of 5 Caribbean countries to offer citizenship-by-investment. Grenada’s citizenship-by-investment program has accepted 1,500 residents yearly since 2013.

There are two roads to Grenadian citizenship

The first is based on a $150,000 donation to a fund that helps the country fix up and maintain its roads, bridges, and hospitals.

The second kind is based on investment in certain real-estate projects approved for the program by the government. Prices start at $220,000 for a share of a hotel or resort and top out at $350,000-plus for fractional or full ownership of non-hotel properties like condos and villas.

Grenada’s citizenship-by-investment program doesn’t require citizens to live in the country for any amount of time, but it does come with some perks if you do.

In Grenada, individuals and companies only pay income tax on income derived from within the country and its tax rates are generally considered favorable compared to other countries’. Grenada also doesn’t tax capital gains, including the profit from a sale of a property or investment. Grenada also has no withholding or inheritance tax, meaning funds aren’t withheld from paychecks for taxes and assets can be passed down at no cost.

To be a Grenadian tax resident, the country requires 183 days of residence on the island a year.
