What is Caricom Passport?
The CARICOM passport is a passport document issued by the 15 member states of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) for their citizens. It can be used both for intra-regional and international travel. The CARICOM passports are written with the words “CC Caricom Community” as uniform standard in dark blue covers.
Nationals of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines are also OECS citizens. They may use a member-state issued drivers licence, national identification card, voters registration card or social security card for travel within the OECS area
Among the CARICOM, only 5 caribbean nations (St Kitts, St Lucia, Antigua, Dominica, Grenada) run investment citizenship programs, also called “CBI”. These countries issue passports within months and the investment ranges from $100K to $200k either through donation to state or real estate.
Among CBI nations, St Kitts tops for having the most powerful passport followed by Antigua and Barbuda.
