The USA Speaks Well Of Grenada Citizenship by Investment Program

Recently, Linda Taglialatela, The United States Ambassador to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, noted and praised Grenada for its effective use of the Joint Regional Communications Center (JRCC). This center is used to conduct due diligence for individuals seeking citizenship and a passport through the Grenada Citizenship by Investment program.

“Grenada is doing a good job, Grenada is using it more than some of the others,” the diplomat said.

“We have working arrangements with the five islands in the eastern Caribbean which have an arrangement for due diligence through the JRCC,” Taglialatela said, pointing out that all applications on each island must be reviewed by the JRCC.


Once a country has access to the JRCC, they can see information from Interpol and other agencies that have information about different individuals. The JRCC is part of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Implementing Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS). Responsible primarily for the "operation and management of the advance passenger information system, which checks passengers entering and exiting through CARICOM air and seaports."

Based on the data received through the JRCC, the country decides what to do next with the application of a potential investor.
