Second PassportsCaribbean Islands Citizenship By Investment: Pricing to Double End of June! - Lincoln Global Partners

May 1, 2024by Georgea Rios0

Caribbean Island Citizenship By Investment Programs set to increase their minimum investments to $200,000

Nestled in the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea are 5 Caribbean Islands offering citizenship by investment.

Antigua & Barbuda, Grenada, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, and Dominica each offer a pathway to citizenship for foreign investors. These programs have been extremely popular over the past few decades with foreign investors since they provide investors with the opportunity to enhance their global mobility through greater visa-travel access. Other key benefits include attractive taxation systems for those who wish to relocate or do business in the Caribbean as well as the opportunity to live throughout the entire CARICOM region.

While these Citizenship programs in the Caribbean Islands are not going anywhere, they are set to go through significant changes in response to the United States and European Union looking to increase regulations and barriers to entry for such programs.

Most notably, the price will be increasing significantly in the next few months.

Caribbean Islands Citizenship By Investment Price Increases

On March 20th, 2024, the Prime Ministers of Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, and St. Kitts and Nevis all ratified a Memorandum of Understanding expressing their commitment to collaborate on various aspects of their existing Citizenship by Investment Programs.

Most notable is a price increase which will see most programs double their minimum investment requirement. The participating nations have reached a consensus to raise their minimum investment thresholds to at least US$200,000 by June 30, 2024. Any future changes to this minimum must be unanimously adopted by all 4 countries.

Other Changes

Besides the price increases, this agreement establishes a cooperative framework between the Caribbean Island Citizenship By Investment Nations and information-sharing mechanism within the region, aimed at enhancing best practices in citizenship by investment. The following changes will also be implemented:

  1. Transparency and Data Sharing: All signatories agree to exchange data on applicants, funds, and compliance through a digital platform, aligning with international best practices.
  2. Regulation: A regional regulatory authority is being established to uphold standards consistent with international norms and best practices.
  3. Security Measures: Uniform protocols for security screenings and due diligence, including application interviews, are set forth.

The agreement represents a significant advancement in the Caribbean’s citizenship by investment sector and the broader investment migration industry. It solidifies a cooperative foundation built on best practices.

St. Lucia – Not included in the MOU

Interestingly, the final Caribbean Island Citizenship By Investment nation – St. Lucia has not taken part in the MOU. It therefore remains to be seen whether or not St. Lucia will join the other Caribbean countries in these changes or go in a different direction. However, while Saint Lucia has not yet signed the memorandum of understanding (MOU) given the relationships between these countries it is anticipated to join the alliance in due course.

Can I still invest at the current threshold before the changes?

Typically, investors require up to three months to prepare an application. Given the impending doubling of prices, we urge investors to act swiftly to secure their citizenship by investment applications under the current pricing regulations. Doing so could result in substantial savings of up to $100,000.
