India has available to them, the Grenada Citizenship by Investment programme.

Grenada, popularly known as the Spice Island of the Caribbean is a small island in the Caribbean that enjoys steady economic growth and political stability. The country offers a high standard of living for its citizens and has virtually no crimes. Grenada is a full member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the Caribbean Community, and Common Market (CARICOM), as well as the World Trade Organisation (WTO). The country had gained independence from the British in 1974.

For India, Grenada Citizenship is a path to USA residency through E-2 Investor Visa.

Update: Congress passed the James M. Inhofe National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 (H.R. 7776/NDAA) on December 15, 2022.

Individuals who have obtained citizenship through financial investment must have been residing in that country continuously for at least 3 years before applying for an E Nonimmigrant Visa. 

The residency requirement does not apply to individuals previously granted E nonimmigrant status. The changes will limit the use of “Citizenship by Investment” programs of countries, such as Grenada, that have allowed investors who obtain citizenship in a treaty visa country to secure E-2 Nonimmigrant Visas while waiting for an available immigrant visa.

Through this guide, we will help you learn more facts and information about the program and explain how to obtain citizenship via investment.

About India

India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country, and the most populous democracy in the world.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Indian economy in 2020 was nominally worth $2.7 trillion; it is the sixth-largest economy by market exchange rates, and is around $8.9 trillion, the third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). With its average annual GDP growth rate of 5.8% over the past two decades, and reaching 6.1% during 2011–2012, India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. However, the country ranks 139th in the world in nominal GDP per capita and 118th in GDP per capita at PPP. Until 1991, all Indian governments followed protectionist policies that were influenced by socialist economics. Widespread state intervention and regulation largely walled the economy off from the outside world. An acute balance of payments crisis in 1991 forced the nation to liberalise its economy; since then it has moved slowly towards a free-market system by emphasising both foreign trade and direct investment inflows. India has been a member of WTO since 1 January 1995.

India’s telecommunication industry is the second-largest in the world with over 1.2 billion subscribers. It contributes 6.5% to India’s GDP. The Indian automotive industry, the world’s second-fastest growing, increased domestic sales by 26% during 2009–2010, and exports by 36% during 2008–2009. At the end of 2011, the Indian IT industry employed 2.8 million professionals, generated revenues close to US$100 billion equalling 7.5% of Indian GDP, and contributed 26% of India’s merchandise exports. The pharmaceutical industry in India emerged as a global player. As of 2021, with 3000 pharmaceutical companies and 10,500 manufacturing units India is the world’s third-largest pharmaceutical producer, largest producer of generic medicines and supply up to 50%—60% of global vaccines demand and India’s local pharmacutical market is estimated up to US$42 billion. India is among the top 12 biotech destinations in the world. The Indian biotech industry grew by 15.1% in 2012–2013, increasing its revenues from ₹204.4 billion (Indian rupees) to ₹235.24 billion (US$3.94 billion at June 2013 exchange rates).

With 1,210,193,422 residents reported in the 2011 provisional census report, India is the world’s second-most populous country. Its population grew by 17.64% from 2001 to 2011, compared to 21.54% growth in the previous decade (1991–2001). The human sex ratio, according to the 2011 census, is 940 females per 1,000 males. The median age was 28.7 as of 2020. The first post-colonial census, conducted in 1951, counted 361 million people. Medical advances made in the last 50 years as well as increased agricultural productivity brought about by the “Green Revolution” have caused India’s population to grow rapidly.
