Other things to consider:

  • Age of dependents
  • Type of consultant/agent or law firm that you hire Professional fees of the consultant/agent or law firm

When you add up the taxes, government fees, and all real estate related transactions fees, you need to have at a budget of at least EUR 2.6M to move forward.

 

Grenada

  • You can invest in approved real estate projects starting at USD 220,000.00.

 

While Grenada is becoming increasingly trendy due to its new flights from the US and UK and fleet of celebrity flocking, the hospitality industry has also been booming in the past years.

 

Known as the Caribbean’s Spice Island, Grenada welcomed 528,077 stayover visitors in 2018 alone. This represents an impressive 12.90% increase in tourists from 2017 figures.

 

If you choose the real estate option, the investment will be for Six Senses La Sagesse Grenada in which you could take your family with you. example, if a family of four is making the leap, the expected costs are somewhere near USD 305,000 plus the professional fees.

 

If you choose the donation option and you’re taking the entire family with you, the cost of getting a second passport in Grenada is about USD 229,000 plus professional fees.

 

Commonwealth of Dominica

 

Compared to other Caribbean islands, Dominica is also more secluded and less crowded and you’ll enjoy its peaceful vibe. But that doesn’t mean there are no luxury resorts here. Dominica is dubbed as the Nature Island and if you want that luxury island life, this is perfect for you. That’s why the Commonwealth of Dominica has several options for those who want to get a second passport here.
