Grenada Citizenship By Investment Program

The Citizenship by Investment Committee (CBIC) was established by the Honourable Prime Minister of Grenada and is the Government authority responsible for processing all applications for Citizenship by Investment by applicants and their family.

Grenada is an island country, consisting of itself and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. Grenada is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Grenada, known as the "Spice Isle", an exporter of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, coco, nutmeg, and fruit, is one of the most beautiful and lush islands in the West Indies. Unspoilt and exotic, Grenada’s dramatic scenery, tropical rain forests, waterfalls and golden beaches appeals to visitors from around the world.

Grenada is a member of the United Nations, the British Commonwealth, CARICOM, and the Organization of American States (OAS), among many other international organizations.
