Turks & Caicos Citizenship Investment

As a British Overseas Territory, Turks and Caicos falls under UK sovereignty although it is not formally part of the UK. Investors looking specifically for citizenship in this region are encouraged to consider one of the direct Caribbean CBI programmes in neighbouring nations, such as Antigua and Barbuda.

Turks & Caicos Residency Options

Turks and Caicos offer the following three investment avenues to secure permanent residency:

  • A business investment starting at $750,000;
  • A $1 million contribution to an approved public project;
  • A $300,000 to $1 million investment in the real estate market.

Alternative golden visa programmes exist in Europe.
