About the Grenada CBI Program

Launched in August 2013, the government of Grenada began its Citizenship by Investment Program to strengthen the country by stimulating economic growth through foreign investment. In exchange for an individual’s investment into the island nation, they will gain lifetime citizenship in Grenada, as well as a second passport.
