Have you ever wondered what life for yourself and your children would be like if you were able to move, work, live or study in the United States of America? Many Investors who approach us at Bluemina often find themselves pondering on this question.
No matter the investor’s motives, whether it is in search for stability, to seek for better opportunities, tax benefits or visa-free travel, residency in the United States is always guaranteed to meet investor’s residency and citizenship goals. Unfortunately, it is usually with the belief that it comes with a high cost, long application procedure, but through the Grenada passport and E-2 Visa package offered at Bluemina, USA residency can be obtained quickly and swiftly.
When talking about USA investor visas, first program that comes to mind is the USA EB5 program which requires investors to invest at least $900,000 in a regional center project (business/enterprise) approved by USCIS. It can take anywhere from 14 to 30 months in order for the investor to obtain their investor visa. Having said that, investors are in constant search for a more time-efficient and less costly program that will lead them to the United States. E-2 investor visa is the perfect solution for that.
So, what are the other options to access the USA from the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Program?
Grenada Citizenship by Investment Program has to be the answer. Grenada is a Caribbean country whose passport holders are eligible to reside and invest in the United States under the E2 Investor Visa Program, thanks to a Treaty of Trade between the two countries.
First things first, Bluemina will complete the full application on behalf of the investor in order to obtain his Grenada citizenship. The Investor may choose to donate to the Government starting at USD 150,000 or invest in a real estate property for the value of USD 220,000. The process to obtain Grenada citizenship is 4 to 6 months.
Once passport in hand, we then apply for the investor to obtain his E-2 investor visa with our trusted partners in the USA. In order to obtain the investor visa, the investor will have to make a minimum investment amount of $200,000 in a business that he would like to venture in the USA or invest in a current business in the USA (options such as investing in franchises also exist). The process time to obtain an E-2 visa is about 3 to 4 months and is valid for 5 years with the ability to renew it indefinitely as long as the business is maintained.
So if you are looking to live in the USA in less than a year, would like to do so in a cost-efficient manner and would like to become a Commonwealth citizen all in the meanwhile, Grenada’s citizenship by investment and the USA E-2 investor visa is the perfect solution for you.
