Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programmes are highly sought after by individuals who wish to secure an alternative passport, either as an insurance policy if things in their home jurisdiction take a turn for the worse or to expand their citizenship rights and ability to travel worldwide, whether that be for personal or business reasons.

If such individuals have money to invest, then it makes sense to do so in countries that will give them formal citizenship status in return. Caribbean CBI programmes represent a relatively low-cost option compared to other CBI schemes but offer freedom of movement across Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states and visa-free or visa-upon-arrival access to up to 161 countries worldwide.

Benefits of Caribbean CBI Programmes

Caribbean CBI programmes provide investors and their dependents with a broad range of benefits, which include, but are not limited to, the following:

Grant of citizenship, typically within three to six months
Minimum qualifying investment of USD100,000*
Multiple investment options – government donation, bonds or real estate
Applicant can include dependent family members
Visa-free travel or visa-upon-arrival access to 160 + countries worldwide
No minimum stay/residency requirements
No income tax
No inheritance, estate or wealth taxes

* Each programme operates with its own minimum investment requirements and options. Government application, legal and processing fees also apply.

The total costs associated with applying under a Caribbean CBI Programme will depend on a number of factors, including the type of investment selected and the number of family members to be included within the application.
