Between January 2017 to September 2023, Grenada gained 11,814 new citizens through the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme with 4,342 or 37% of that number approved by the Dickon Mitchell cabinet during the 15-month period of July 2022 to September 2023.
The previous Dr Keith Mitchell cabinet approved 7,472 new citizens between January 2017 and June 2022. The cabinet of Grenada makes the final decision on approval or rejection of citizenship applications.
An analysis of public data from the Ministry of Finance revealed that the 4,342 approved citizens is the largest number during any 15-month period since the programme resumed in 2014. The Government website did not provide proper data for the first 2 years of the programme.
