The Caribbean states have secured major “medals” thanks to significant innovations during the pandemic.
What happened? Best Citizenships, an online citizenship planning platform, has prepared a ranking of the best investment citizenship programs for 2021. Experts assessed countries on 37 parameters, including the cost of a passport, the level of welfare of the population, the speed of processing an application, the requirement of residence, confidentiality, the possibility of obtaining EU citizenship, “coronavirus” discounts and the possibility of online registration.
TOP 10 countries with the best investment citizenship programs:
- Saint Lucia
- Saint Kitts and Nevis, Vanuatu
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Samoa, Egypt
- The countries of the Caribbean have taken the first place thanks to significant changes made to their programs. For example, the transition to online registration of applications, “coronavirus” discounts and expanding the circle of relatives who have the right to obtain a passport with an investor.
- Programs requiring personal visit or travel have dropped in the rankings this year as the pandemic made it impossible for investors to travel around the world.
- Vanuatu climbed from the very last to the fourth place on the list, thanks to the fast processing of applications (only 30 days) and the increase in passport validity to 10 years.
