The governments of Saint Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Granada and Saint Lucia have reviewed the state migration policy and developed investment programs to allow foreigners to obtain second nationality in these Caribbean islands.
The formalization process foresees the investment in one of the areas approved by the legislation of the island state. To obtain the passport, the investor has no obligation to reside permanently in the Caribbean territory or prove knowledge of the official language. In addition, the right to citizenship by investment extends to family members close to the principal applicant.
With the acquisition of a Caribbean passport, the foreigner agrees to enjoy a zero rate on their income, inheritance, wealth and other property taxes. The experienced lawyers of Mundo Offshore will help you justify compliance with the requirements demanded by the legislation of the Caribbean countries, and thus obtain second citizenship.
