Investment Choices

Investment Choices
  1. Opting for real estate investment becomes an opportunity, for foreign investors as Grenada shifts its economy from agriculture to services. Those interested must commit least US$350,000, which needs to be held for a minimum of four years. This minimum amount covers the main applicant, their spouse, and two qualifying dependents. An additional US$25,000 is necessary for each extra dependent. If the applicant has a parent under fifty five they need to add a USD 50,000 along with the post approval contribution. Likewise if there is a sibling, an additional USD 75,000 contribution is necessary, after approval.
  2. Applicants also have the option to contribute least $150,000 to Grenadas National Transformation Fund instead. This minimum donation amount is specifically, for the applicant. For families of up to four individuals, the donation requirement stands at US$200,000. An additional donation of US$25,000 is necessary for each additional dependent. Just like with real estate investments if the application includes a parent under the age of fifty five an extra payment of $50,000 is needed along, with the approval contribution. Similarly if a sibling is included in the application, an extra payment of $75,000 must be made alongside the approval contribution.

Permanent Residency Certificates

The concept of residency has been completely eliminated from the citizenship through investment procedure. Consequently, the government no longer issues PR cards and certificates. Updates regarding an alternative form of national identification will be communicated upon receipt.
