Don’t log off the page without having a look at the officially issued Grenada CBI circular! A copy of circular note is attached below!

The Grenada Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Committee presents its compliments to the Agents, Marketers, Developers and Partners of the Grenada CBI Program and has the honour to notify via this Circular that a recently conducted review of the CBI Program, has resulted in a number of important changes.

Specific areas have been identified where modifications to the current CBI operational procedures and processes will further enhance inefficiencies for effectively managing an up-scaled workload. Certain requirements of Grenada’s CBI program will also be modified to provide for a uniquely attractive CBI program. The following is a list of the authorized changes that have so far been implemented:

 

HIV Test

      1. All minor dependents under the age of twelve (12) are not required to submit an HIV test result provided that the biological mother is HIV Negative. All applicants aged twelve (12) or older are still required to submit their HIV test result. It therefore follows, that in cases where the biological mother is not a party to the application, her HIV test result must be submitted with the application. The validity period for HIV test of three months remains in effect.

In instances where the biological mother is unavailable or unwilling, an HIV test result would be required for the minor child, as per normal. Note that the previous requirement was children under the age of eleven, so this provides an additional year.

Newborns

      1. Inclusion of a newborn child in the citizenship of a principal applicant once the child is born within twelve (12) months of the grant of citizenship with a processing fee of US$500.00.

Eligibility

      1. An applicant is not eligible for Citizenship if he/she is denied Citizenship by Investment in another Caribbean jurisdiction.

Due diligence fees for dependent children

      1. Due diligence fee of US$5000.00 is applicable to all dependent children over the age of 16 years.
      1. New fees as of 1st January, 2017 are as follows:-
