The Caribbean Citizenship by Investment programs make it easy to add future family members through post citizenship additions. One of the most important benefits of Caribbean CBI programs is addition of dependents for citizenship at a later time. For example, you seek passport for a new born child, spouse (as a result of remarriage) or grandparents this is subjected to additional fees .
