Seeking Secondary Citizenship
There has been increased demand from High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) in South Africa seeking secondary citizenship as a way to protect themselves and their families from the risks caused by external political and economic factors beyond their control.
Obtaining dual citizenship provides options and security for hard-earned wealth and even a new home if necessary. A secondary citizenship also provides global mobility, with another passport to travel visa-free, as many unsettled country’s passports afford only restricted international travel.
Kimpton Kawana Bay, located in Grenada at the southern end of the Caribbean chain of islands is set to open in 2020 and will be the island’s newest 5-star beachfront resort.
Once opened, the resort will be run by the internationally renowned operator, Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants, part of the InterContinental Hotels Group® (IHG). The resort will feature an infinity pool, chef-run restaurant, fitness centre, spa, water sports facilities, lounge bar, roof-top lounge and beach bar. Grenada’s newest luxury getaway will offer the ideal destination for the youthful, high-end traveller wanting the best the Caribbean has to offer.
“Apart from secondary citizenship, purchasing at Kimpton Kawana Bay provides hassle-free ownership, a share of hotel revenue each year and no annual out of pocket fees”, explains Geoffrey Crow, Marketing Manager of Kimpton Kawana Bay.
Citizenship by Investment in Grenada is a fast, efficient and straightforward process, taking as little as 120 to 150 days to process. Grenadian citizenship provides many benefits, including visa-free travel to over 140 countries, no tax on worldwide income and no wealth, gift, inheritance or capital gains tax.

Citizenship by Investment at Kimpton Kawana Bay is fast, financially sound, and provides global access opportunities that other CBI programmes around the world simply cannot rival.
