At First Celtic International we specialize in 2nd Passports via Citizenship by Investment programs with five countries Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, St Lucia and Grenada all offering 2nd Passports in return for investment in their countries. First Celtic have done extensive research and come to the view that two passports stand out from the rest and this article I will give you the reasons we came to the conclusion we did. Unless you want to retire to either St Kitts, St Lucia or Dominica then really then First Celtic came to the conclusion when analyzing the value of the passport against the costs that you should really pick either Antigua or Grenada. ANTIGUA PASSPORT BY DONATION We would put St Kitts and Antigua both in a similar category but the lower costs of an Antigua passport make it the only real choice unless you have some affiliations to St Kitts. Dominica would be the cheapest option for Donation only but it is nowhere near the caliber and quality of an Antigua passport. Antigua gives you Visa free travel to all the major countries of the world excluding USA and Australia and at a Donation rate currently at only 100,000 US Dollars this is the best value for money passport by donation in the Caribbean. When you add Government fees and processing a single applicant can have a brand new passport for as little as 155,000 USD. GRENADA PASSPORT BY REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT Grenada has always been in our mind the number one Passport in the Caribbean for the following reasons:
• Visa Free Travel to China, Russia, Brazil and UAE in addition to all the major countries such as UK, EU, Hong Kong, Singapore etc.
• EB2 treaty with USA opening the possibility to get a Green card. Also very fast approval rates for USA visas.
• Excellent Real Estate Options returning clients investment after 5 years if required.
• New Changes making Real Estate Investment option only 220,000 USD
• New Law that allows you to add your siblings to your application subject to Government fees.
When you add all of the above together for a real estate based Citizenship by Investment program Grenada is way out in front. So for a single applicant they can invest approx. 300,000 USD and get returned 220,000 in 5 years’ time plus receive income on the investment in that 5 years. Hence why we believe this is the best choice if the client is in a position to invest 300,000 Dollars into a passport. CONCLUSION If the client is on a low budget, then the Antigua passport is the best choice but if the client can afford a bit more money the Grenada real estate option is the best choice for the superior passport and the net amount of money they pay over a 5-year period basically 70,000 USD saving and a superior passport.
