A sheer hike in the minimum capital contribution and prolong application processing times have made it more expensive and difficult for foreign investors to obtain US EB 5 Investment Visa in recent times.
With the suspension of various other US visa categories such as H1B and H2B; high-net worth individuals and investors around the globe are looking for alternative routes to access the US and Grenada Citizenship by Investment Program emerges as one such route to fulfill their US dreams.
Citizenship by Investment (CBI) is an excellent option for high net-worth individuals and investors from developing countries to strengthen and diversify their investment portfolio.
These programs allow investors to obtain Legal Citizenship and Passport of a particular country when they make a significant investment either in the form of Sustainable Growth Fund, Real Estate or capital investment and others depending on the requirement of that Country.
Grenada is a magnificent country located in the Caribbean and has been a treaty country with the United States since 1989. This treaty agreement allows the citizens of Grenada to operate a substantial business in the U.S. and reside there on exclusive E-2 visa.
There are a number of countries in the world including China Russia, Brazil, South Africa, and India that do not have an E-2 treaty with the USA. Therefore, investing in the second passport of Grenada with the subsequent obtaining of the E-2 Treaty Visa is an excellent solution for those wishing to enter the US market just in a matter of months.
Securing an E-2 visa can be a stepping stone for investors who are looking to invest under US EB-5 program. After being admitted to the US on an E-2 visa, investor can make a subsequent transition to the EB-5 program by meeting the EB-5 funding and job-creation requisites.
