Associates Times, a Florida-based media organisation, hosted a webinar with CS Global Partners on Residency and Citizenship by Investment programmes on March 6, 2022, at 2 pm (EST),
The participants of this “free” virtual conference learned about several countries’ Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programmes, notably those in the Caribbean.
The webinar covered several aspects of CBI programmes in general, as well as changing landscape trends and how these programmes operate. The discussion also touched on the importance of due diligence in maintaining the (host) countries and international communities’ safety and security.
Micha-Rose Emmett, CEO of CS Global Partners, and Paul Singh, Director of CS Global Partners, discussed CBI programmes in depth.
“The investment immigration sector has seen numerous changes, but many of the factors that drive people to invest in second citizenship have remained the same. The changing tendencies are largely associated with the wider socio-economic atmosphere of a contemporary globalised society, which is defined by repeated conflict and instability,” Emmett explained as she described the changes she had noticed throughout time.
She went on to say that people all around the world recognise the value of having a socially, politically, and economically secure location to call home, and that Caribbean countries are often able to provide precisely that.
Emmet further emphasised the rigorous due-diligence procedures used by host countries for these CBI programmes, as well as how thorough they were. This is done to ensure that all candidates are screened and vetted, and that only reputable investors are approved in the end.
Emmett also went over the various types of investments available through CBI programmes, emphasising that the government fund contribution is the most straightforward path to second citizenship.
CBI and Residency by Investment programmes, according to Singh, are direct, unambiguous, and smooth, delighting both investors and host countries.
He further emphasised that Caribbean jurisdictions, such as Dominica and St Kitts & Nevis, offer rapid application processing for CBI programmes.
Singh also praised the five Caribbean countries – Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, and St Lucia – for their CBI programmes, which have continuously placed high in the Financial Times’ Professional Wealth Management magazine’s CBI Index.
“All five Caribbean countries have a strict due diligence process that includes both internal and external background checks, ensuring that the screening process is beneficial to the host country as well as other countries around the world.”
He also walked people through the application procedure for CBI programmes. “The first stage is to submit the application and any relevant papers, after which the agent’s fees are paid on their behalf.” The documents and application will next be scrutinised to see if they fit the requirements. The applicants are subsequently subjected to a thorough examination.”
“Applicants will usually be attracted to a program’s length,” Singh continued. St Kitts and Nevis, for example, began their CBI programme in 1984, over four decades ago, while Dominica began its programme in 1993. These are some of the most well-known programmes in the industry, as well as the greatest options.
“Another argument to choose these two countries’ CBI programmes is that they are highly regarded by the world community.
“What makes the Citizenship by Investment programme so appealing is that it truly is a win-win situation for both the investor and the host country.” The due diligence process enables countries to identify exactly who is investing in their countries, and the direct contribution to the government enables small nations to grow sustainably without relying on international aid, and funds can be used to build roads, schools, and hospitals that benefit citizens.”
