Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to submit an application for each member of my family?

No, this is not necessary. Spouses and dependent children up to 25 years can be included within the same application. You can also include your dependent parents and grandparents who are 65 years and above.

What makes investing in a second citizenship in the Caribbean legal?

What makes these programs legal is the presence of Constitutional Acts that prescribe how an individual can acquire citizenship through investment, and ensure the citizenship granted is for life – meaning no one can revoke citizenship even if government changes in the future.

The respective country’s Constitutional Acts explain exactly how the applicant can invest in citizenship. Most of the Caribbean programs require the investor to apply through an authorized agent and invest in government funds or approved real estate projects, business ventures or government bonds. The applicant also has to undergo a due diligence check and prove that he has clean a source of funds.
