CP INDEX

Dominica

 

One of the easiest programs {there is no mandatory interview}, Dominica’s citizenship process is hassle-free. However, citizens of Dominica do not enjoy as much global mobility as other countries.

Grenada

 

Speed. Ease. Lucrative real estate options. These three key factors make Grenada an appealing place to attain citizenship on investment. However, it is a costly prospect compared to other countries, and the global mobility offered to citizens of Grenada is not on par with other nations.

Bulgaria

In this new edition of the index, Bulgaria ranks first due to favorable changes in its legislation in the past few years, making it one of the most attractive programs. Its regular residence to citizenship program scores high marks on Cost and Simplicity. The program scores relatively low in Speed, but this is compensated for by the fast-track option to citizenship within 12 months of PR that Bulgaria introduced at the end of 2013.

Antigua & Barbuda

 

The program ranks first among the Caribbean group and finds its place among the top performers within all assessed countries. It gets the highest score for Speed and relatively high marks for Simplicity. In terms of cost, the program must catch up with its Caribbean peers, but it achieves the top rank for Global Mobility compared to the other islands, especially after St. Kitts lost its visa-free access to Canada.

UK

 

The U.K. is currently at the bottom of the list. Its high scores in Global Mobility and Quality of Life cannot compensate for its poor marks in the other three categories. The country recently doubled the minimum required investment to £2 million, making it the second most expensive program in the index after Cyprus. The country keeps scoring low on Speed to Citizenship and Simplicity on account of the tough requirement for physical residence.
