Why you should obtain Caribbean Citizenship?

Caribbean Citizenship offers endless benefits for the investor and investor family. To make the decision process easier and sum up the main benefits of each program, Mann’s Solutions team has prepared a detailed overview of each Caribbean Citizenship by Investment Program.

Why you should obtain Caribbean Citizenship?

Worldwide Mobility

A passport of a Caribbean country provides an opportunity to travel visa-free to up to 156 countries, including the EU, United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong-Kong and even gives the possibility to apply for a business visa to the USA. All families will be able to enjoy visa-free travelling.

Profitable Investment Options

Caribbean citizenship programs provide at least 2-3 profitable investment options. This simply means that you can invest your money for a 5-year period and receive a second passport. The most popular Caribbean Investment Options are Real estate purchase, contribution to a public fund or investment in government bonds.

Taxation System

Well-known for their Taxation Systems, Caribbean Countries provide plenty of benefits for their nationals and businesses. All income received outside the jurisdiction of the second nationality is not taxed – it is a great tool to optimise tax burden and preserve your assets. Besides, you might be pleasantly surprised by the absence of some usual taxes that are common at your previous country of residence. For example, Caribbean countries like St. Kitts& Nevis and Antigua and Barbuda – do not charge income tax.

Confidential Process and Plan B

All Caribbean programs have strict regulations when it comes to confidentiality, therefore, the programs are 100% confidential. Besides, Caribbean Citizenship gives the right to live in a safe tropical environment that is both modern and stable. A second home in the Caribbean is always a plan B in case of political or economic upheavals.
