Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit recently amended their CBI legislation, which no longer allows main applicants to include siblings under a family citizenship application. Following this recent change, we thought we would take a closer look at the programmes that still allow the inclusion of siblings. Historically when one of the Caribbean countries offering CBI make a legislation change, it’s quite common for the other nations to shortly follow suit. If you are looking to proceed with an application which may include a sibling, it is worth acting sooner rather than later, in case of any more changes.

Below is a summary of each programme’s key requirements for siblings.

ST KITTS CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAMME:

In Saint Kitts the legislation states the following:

• Siblings of the main applicant, or his/her spouse, can be included;
• Siblings must be unmarried, childless and 30 years of age or younger;
• Siblings must also be dependent on the applicant for financial support.

ST LUCIA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAMME:

In Saint Lucia the legislation states the following:

• Siblings of the main applicant, or his/her spouse, can be included;
• Siblings must be unmarried and 18 years of age or younger;
• Siblings must have received the consent of their parents or guardians to be included in the application.

ANTIGUA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAMME:

In Antigua the legislation states the following:

• Siblings of the main applicant, or his/her spouse, can be included;
• Siblings of any age can be included, there is no age limit;
• Siblings do not have to be fully supported by the main applicant.

GRENADA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAMME:

In Grenada the legislation states the following:

• Siblings of the main applicant, or his/her spouse, can be included;
• Siblings must be unmarried, childless, not divorced and 18 years of age or older;
• Siblings do not have to be fully supported by the main applicant, and there is no limit to total net worth.

None of the EU Investor visa programmes allows the inclusion of siblings, however, some will consider this if the main applicant has legally adopted a sibling under the age of 18 years old. If you are looking to include a sibling within your family citizenship or residency by investment application, please contact us to find out the best route for your circumstances.
