The newest Economic Citizenship Program, Grenada’s Pilot scheme will allow qualified investors and their family members to apply for citizenship and benefit from facilitation of visa-free travel.

The Grenada Citizenship by Investment Program was launched in 2013 under the regulations of the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Act.

In recent years, tourism has become the leading sector for foreign direct investments in Grenada. Another service sector on the rise is the offshore financial industry, which – together with strong performances in construction and manufacturing, have also contributed to growth in national output.

As part of their strategy to attracting foreign direct investment, the Grenadian Government is working closely together with a select number of businesses related to tourism, agriculture, and manufacturing. Through the implementation of the Citizenship-By-Investment Program, they also hope to create investment opportunities that will bring about sustainable employment.

The Program offers many benefits in exchange of several requirements that applicants must meet. To qualify for citizenship in Grenada, applicants need to fulfill one of the investment requirements outlined below, in addition to the following criteria:

  • Be of outstanding character;
  • Hold no criminal record;
  • Have excellent health;
  • Have a high personal net worth.


Real Estate

With its economy shifting from agricultural-dominant to service-dominant, one of the most viable options for foreign nationals is the investment in a pre-approved real estate project.

Mount Cinnamon

The development is situated on a lush hillside on almost two miles of the white-sand Grand Anse Beach, which is recognized by some as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The resort-hotel, looking towards the historic capital St. George’s, sets the tone for an irresistibly elegant yet intimate, relaxed beach hideaway.

The investment must be minimum US$ 350,000 and must be owned and maintained for a minimum period of 4 years. An extra US$ 25,000 will be required for every additional dependent.

The opportunity to own shares of Mount Cinnamon is an invitation to become a citizen of Grenada, begin a long and fruitful relationship with the island and its culture, and contribute to its future.
