(MENAFN - Caribbean News Now) HONG KONG — For those looking to travel the world visa-free with citizenship incentives, Harvey Law Group reveals global mobility access with Caribbean's popular Grenada and Dominica citizenship-by-investment programs.
A paradise for luxury wanderlusts, there's really no better place to escape the winter than exploring the 700 clear blue waters islands of the Caribbean. Whilst only two percent of the islands can be inhabited, there are two current Caribbean countries that are attracting more than just tourism. The West Indian ‘Spice Island' Grenada and ‘Nature Island' the Commonwealth of Dominica have become attractive destinations when it comes to global mobility and international real estate investments through the citizenship-by-investment programs.
What do these two countries have in common?
The region's booming investment immigration industry and powerful passports. The governments of both nations have launched citizenship by investment (CBI) programs where an investment is made to the country's National Development Fund, or into a government-approved real estate project, in exchange of attractive visa-free travel, a lifetime citizenship, a well-recognized passport for the investor and qualifying family members, and many more.
Increasing demands in both CBI real estate programs have attracted upscale developers such as Range Developments and Six Senses Resorts and Spa to Grenada. The collaboration led to the introduction of Grenada's latest CBI qualified real estate project, Six Senses La Sagesse Grenada. Six Senses La Sagesse Grenada was officially signed and approved on January 15, 2019 between Range Developments and the Grenadian Government, with Harvey Law Group (HLG) appointed as strategic investment partner with exclusivity for Southeast Asia. Six Senses La Sagesse,
Set on Grenada's most prestigious beach the Grand Anse, the five-star luxury retreat is an approximate 15 minutes-drive from the international airport. Nestled amidst the unspoiled nature and the crescent-shaped beach, the lined palm trees and aqua blue water provides an idyllic location for Six Senses as well as an accessible picturesque beachfront for Six Senses residences.
The 70 luxury villas resort is mindfully designed with environmental ethos for modern comforts, all with sustainable and repurposed materials, well-equipped with private plunge pools and sea views. Dining at Six Senses La Sagesse will highlight the freshest seafood and locally harvest produces, true to Caribbean ingredients. In true Six Senses style, Six Senses La Sagesse Spa offers specialty wellness treatments in classic Caribbean healing traditions, ensuring a heighten sense of the mind, body, and senses.
The official ground-breaking ceremony for Six Senses Sagesse Grenada will take place on August 23rd, 2019.
A share into the Six Senses La Sagesse is currently at USD 220,000 through a limited partnership structure, allowing the investor to take advantage of a 7-night complimentary stay annually at the resort and a conservative projected profit-share at 3-5 percent yield per annum. With the investment, a Grenadian passport holder can enjoy visa-free travel to over 140 countries, including China, Europe and Brazil. Investors are also free from personal, income, and worldwide taxation. It is to note that Grenada is the only Caribbean CBI program that enables investors to apply for the E-2 visa in the US. Investors are not required to fly, visit nor reside during or after the application process in order to secure the Grenadian passport. A decision will be advised within 60 business days from the date of formal submission, and the issuance of Grenadian citizenship within one month after written approval is received and investment funds paid. Secret Bay Resort
Another Caribbean's most anticipated CBI real estate option is based in the Commonwealth of Dominica under the five-star, world-renowned Secret Bay Resort: The Residences at Secret Bay.
The Residences at Secret Bay is Dominica's only CBI project offering completed villas for immediate purchase with demonstrated rental demand and a competitive exit strategy. Pricing for The Residences at Secret Bay range from USD 218,000 per share for citizenship investors to USD 1,220,800 for individuals seeking full ownership of an under-the-radar, sustainable luxury Caribbean vacation home.

Key benefits for the investor and the family notably include visa-free travel to over 130 countries, including Europe, UK and Hong Kong, a stable political climate, a 90-day path to citizenship, favorable tax regime, rapid relocation amidst modern uncertainty, and lifetime citizenship for families - passable through generations.
