Grenada CitizenshipObtaining the E2 Visa
Your Route to Residency in the US

Grenada is the only country in the Caribbean with a Citizenship By Investment Program that has an E2 Treaty with the USA. This makes the program unique as it offers investors from countries that do not have an existing E2 Treaty a potential route to residency in the USA.

Heavily populated countries such as Brazil, India, China, Nigeria and Vietnam do not have an E2 Treaty with the US. Clients from these countries can utilize Grenada's treaty as new citizens of Grenada and obtain residency in the US through the E2 Investor visa by making a business investment from just $100,000. This is significantly cheaper and faster than the EB5 program, the only other alternative and requires an investment of $900,000.

While the E2 Visa can be extended indefinitely, unlike the EB5 program it does not lead to a Green Card or Citizenship. This can actually be a good thing considering the United States is one of only two countries in the world with a Citizenship Based Taxation System.
