Frequently Asked Questions about Caribbean Citizenship

May 7, 2021

To make the Caribbean Citizenship topic more clear for our clients, Mann’s Solutions team decided to prepare answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding Caribbean Citizenship.

What are the main reasons for Caribbean citizenship by investment programs’ popularity?

Most international investors are considering an alternative passport as it’s a powerful tool for international tax planning and allows them to travel visa-free worldwide. Caribbean citizenship provides the following benefits: tax advantages, security, traveling freedom, profitable real-estate investments, and the possibility to retire in a safe country with a mild climate.

Will my family also obtain Caribbean Citizenship, and can I include my family in my application?

 Yes, your family also can obtain Caribbean citizenship. The investment options of all Caribbean countries allow for dependents, which are children under the age of 18, children between the age of 18 and 25 who are full-time students and financially dependent on the main applicant, and parents or grandparents over the age of 65 years old.

Will my citizenship expire at some point?

 No, when you acquire any of the Caribbean citizenship under a citizenship program, you and your family get the citizenship for life. Moreover, citizenship can be passed on to future generations by descent.

How long does it take to obtain citizenship? 

Usually, the full process of obtaining citizenship takes between 3 to 6 months, which is much faster than any other European Citizenship Program. 

Can I keep my original citizenship and obtain a Caribbean one?

 Yes, countries like Antigua and Barbuda or St. Kitts and Nevis allow having dual citizenship. Besides, the acquisition of citizenship – is not reported to any other countries.

What are the taxation rules? And what are the benefits?

 There are many tax benefits, for example, residents of Antigua and Barbuda benefit from no capital gains tax or estate taxes. On the other hand, St. Kitts and Nevis residents enjoy no direct personal taxes whatsoever. Similar tax regulations also apply to other Caribbean nations of Grenada, St. Lucia and Dominica.
