Grenada passport for investing in real estate

What real estate to buy in Grenada to get a passport as well as money

Grenada is a small island state in the Caribbean. It has long stark white sands and lush jungles, sinkholes and submarine volcanoes, conquistador-era buildings, and modern business complexes.

Investors have been obtaining Grenada citizenship since 2013. The demand for investment citizenship grows every year. This is backed by the program’s statistics, published annually by the country’s Ministry of Finance, Planning, Economic Development, and Physical Development.

In 2022 Grenada passports have already been issued to 119 investors and their 272 family members. Since the program’s inception, around 5700 people have got citizenship.

Real estate purchase is the most popular option among investors. It’s chosen by almost 66% of the program’s participants. All objects that investors purchase are approved by the government of Grenada. These are mostly hotels and condominiums.

Grenada offers investment to buy a share in a project, a villa, or an apartment. The joint participation costs the least — starting at $200,000. To buy an object in full ownership, a minimum investment of $350,000 is required. After 5 years of property ownership, it is permitted to sell the asset and return the investment.

The profitability of Caribbean real estate can be compared to that of and has a 3—5% annual yield. Management and renting are usually handled by a property management company: investors don’t have to search for tenants or maintain the property themselves.
