The expected timeframe for the application process is 6 months. The first stage of the document collection can differ in length depending on the applicant’s ability to gather the documents. Our team guides this process with samples and best practice advice. The reviewal stage is subject to the respective Government schedule and can be impacted by factors which we, as authorised agents have no control over. Savory and Partners collaborates with the Government throughout the entire process, and we aim to provide the quickest and smoothest experience for the applicant.
The Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program is protected by Grenada’s legislation, namely the ‘Citizenship by Investment Act 15, 2013’. This law is documented and published and forms part of the laws of Grenada as framed and approved by the national parliament. It stipulates that any person can apply for naturalization and may be eligible for Citizenship on payment of fees if the Government is satisfied that such person has invested substantially in Grenada. The act allows for investment to be made in either one of two ways: The first is by making a contribution to the National Transformation Fund, which assists the development of Grenada’s resources, with the aim of benefiting Grenadians. The other option is an investment in a government-approved real estate project, which comes into being after being reviewed and recommended by the committee to the government Minister in charge.
