Expert in Grenada Citizenship by Investment program
“The passport program of Grenada is suitable, first and foremost, for the investors, who, in addition to the standard list of visa-free countries, are also interested in visa-free entry to China and the opportunity to obtain an E-2 business visa to the USA, which is inaccessible to the citizens of Russia, China and other countries. In addition, the holders of the passport can count on social and political security, preferential taxation and full confidentiality. Any citizen who meets the requirements of the program can get this Caribbean citizenship. In this respect it is important to understand that the final result and the speed of decision-making by the Grenada authorities depend on the reliability and completeness of the filed documents. We recommend the clients to pay special attention to the “shelf life” of documents. For example, it is advisable to provide the conclusions of the medical examination and confirmation of payment for utilities closer to the date of filing of documents.”
