Application
Guide

An applicant for citizenship must fulfil the personal requirements established under the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Act, 2013. Among other things, this means that he or she must be at least eighteen years old, have no criminal record, be in good health, and be willing to make the required contribution. A person who fulfils these requirements may then take the following steps:

APPLICATION PROCESS

Step 1

The first step in applying for citizenship is choosing an Authorised International Marketing Agent. Applications for citizenship may not be submitted directly to Grenada’s Citizenship by Investment Committee (CBIC) and must only be handled by agents. Applicants must contact an Authorised International Marketing Agent, who in turn will liaise with an Authorised Local Agent. Applicants may not contact Authorised Local Agents directly.

An ‘Authorised International Marketing Agent’ is a trusted global marketer who is permitted to promote the Programme and who assists applicants along with the Authorised Local Agent. An ‘Authorised Local Agent’ is someone who has been granted a Local Agent’s licence by the Minister and who is authorized to act on behalf of the main applicant with respect to his or her application.

Step 2

The second step in an application for citizenship is contacting an Authorised Marketing Agent, whose role is to provide the applicant with assistance in preparing documents for submission to the CBIC. The applicant will need to complete official forms, attend a medical examination, and obtain certain supporting documents – all of which must be submitted in English and be appropriately legalised. If the applicant is purchasing real estate, this will need to be reserved through a sale and purchase agreement. The Authorised Marketing Agent will be able to advise the applicant on the preparation of the documents and on how to have them legalised.

Step 3

When all forms are complete, the Authorised Local Agent submits the application to the Executive Office of the CBIC. The Authorised Local Agent then becomes responsible for liaising with the Executive Office of the CBIC in relation to all correspondence, queries, or questions that may arise with respect to the applicant’s file. There is currently no mandatory interview requirement for the Investment Migration Agency Grenada.

Step 4

Each application is vetted by the Government through a thorough due diligence background check, during which time submitted information is examined and verified. The CBIC considers application files in light of this due diligence check, and then issues a recommendation about the application. Final approval is in the hands of the Minister of Citizenship. Upon the Minister making a decision, the applicant is issued a letter (through his or her Authorised Local Agent) detailing whether the application was successful, delayed for further processing, or rejected.

Step 5

If the application is successful, the CBIC issues a letter instructing the applicant (through his or her Authorised Local Agent) to either make the contribution (for the NTF option) or complete the purchase of his or her real estate. If real estate is purchased, then the applicant must demonstrate completion, as well as the execution of all necessary documents. Upon receiving proof of payment, the CBIC issues the certificate of registration, establishing that the applicant has received Grenadian citizenship. Authorised Local Agents must use this certificate to apply for a Grenadian passport on behalf of the applicant.

PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS

The main applicant must demonstrate that he or she: (i) Is at least eighteen years old; (ii) is in good health; and (iii) has enough funds to make the required investment. The source of these funds must be legal.

In order to protect its people and Grenada’s international standing, the Government of Grenada will only grant citizenship to individuals who are truly deserving of that honour. Therefore, the Government will deny the application of any applicant who:

  • Provides false information on his or her application form;
  • Has at any time previously been convicted in any country of an offence for which the maximum custodial penalty for the same or similar offence in Grenada is in excess of six months imprisonment (unless he or she received a free pardon);
  • Is the subject of a criminal investigation;
  • Is considered to be a potential national security risk to Grenada or to any other country;
  • Is involved in any activity likely to cause disrepute to Grenada; or
  • Has been denied a visa to a country with which Grenada has visa-free travel and who has not subsequently obtained a visa to the country that issued the denial

In order to ensure that the requirements listed above are fully adhered to, the Government of Grenada subjects each applicant to strict due diligence procedures. Moreover, each applicant must supplement his or her application with supporting documents. These include, but are not limited to, original or certified copies of:

  • A certificate by a medical practitioner, indicating that the main applicant and his or her applying family members are not suffering from any communicable disease and that they are otherwise in good health; and
  • A police certificate.
