Azure waters. Clear blue skies. Tropical sunshine.
All these and more can be yours when you apply for a second passport by investment obtained through a well-established specialist firm. These government licensed agencies offer private client services necessary for citizenship investment and immigration into the Caribbean.
The Caribbean is known to be an ideal place for rest and relaxation. Among its regular visitors and residents are celebrities, politicians, famous personalities, and even royalty.
Ultra-high net worth individuals and well-heeled families also consider making their second home in any of the majestic island nations in the Caribbean.
Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, and St. Kitts are but a few of the most alluring locations that beckon those who wish to live a Caribbean lifestyle.
The Caribbean is not only attractive because of its paradise-on-earth beauty.
Aside from the picturesque setting, it also offers plenty of investment and wealth-preservation opportunities. Through the Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) offered by a handful of island nations in the Caribbean, global entrepreneurs can take advantage of perks, such as visa-free travel to more than 130 countries and attractive tax incentives should they decide to become residents.
If you want to apply for citizenship and become an owner of a second passport in any of the island nations that offer CIP, then you should schedule a consultation with a reputable second citizenship specialist firm.
For a sampler of ideal locations that you can settle in for your second home, below is a list of a few that may be of interest to you:
1. Half Moon Bay, Antigua
Half Moon Bay is a crescent-shaped nirvana tucked away in Antigua’s southeast coast.
While it is easily accessible from the airport, it is also blissfully removed from the traffic of St. John’s, Antigua’s capital. One of the Caribbean’s most desirable addresses, it counts the historic English Harbour, Nelson’s Dockyard National Park, and Shirley Heights as neighbors.
When you choose to make Half Moon Bay your second home, expect to sink your toes into its 3,200 feet of white coral sand and wade into crystal-clear waters. The beach has verdant hills as a backdrop, with a 27-hectare national park to the north and multiple hiking trails in the west offering panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea.
Nestled in Antigua, which is considered to offer the best value among the Caribbean citizenship programs, Half Moon Bay is a unique destination that appeals to those who love tranquil retreats, as well as bustling towns complete with bars, boutiques, and restaurants.
You can also choose from several real estate locations where you can design and build your own Caribbean abode.
Whether it is on a clifftop location or a private beachfront, you can be sure that you’ll have privacy, spectacular views, and access to top-notch amenities and services provided by your resort or real estate developer.
2. Grand Anse Beach, Grenada
If you want to take advantage of visa-free travel to China and Russia, on top of Europe and over 130 more countries, then Grenada is your best bet.
It is the only island nation in the Caribbean that can offer you this, aside from being the only Caribbean CIP jurisdiction that allows its citizens to apply for an E-2 visa in the U.S.A.
Aside from visa-free travel privileges, a progressive government, and freedom from capital gains or estate taxes, Grenada also gives dual and lifetime citizenship without requiring you to travel during or after application.
If you’re looking for an ideal place to settle in Grenada, you can look into Grand Anse Beach. It is a 3-kilometer sheltered beach on the southwest coast and home to the most popular travel accommodations.
A perfect example of a solid real estate investment in Grenada is Kawana Bay, an award-winning development that offers you a winning combination of a top-notch investment opportunity with Grenada’s outstanding CIP program.
It gives you hassle-free ownership without any annual out-of-pocket expenses, excellent amenities and services, and a high potential for rental income.
3. Christophe Harbour, St. Kitts
If you want your second home to be nestled in a 2,500-acre hideaway, then turn your sights to Christophe Harbour in St.Kitts. Located in the southeast peninsula of this island nation, Christophe Harbour is a premier destination that sets the standard for luxury living in the Caribbean.
Set your roots in this master-planned resort residential community where you can enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle away from the chaotic noise of urban life.
Choose from a diverse selection of real estate properties – from charming cottages to bespoke beachfront estates. Freehold marina berths are also offered to the most discerning investor, opening to a playground of super yachts and water activities.
Home Away From Home
If you want to explore the possibility of establishing your second home in any of the locations mentioned above, then book an appointment with a trusty second citizenship specialist now.
