A Growing List of Africans Buying Up Second Passports from Caribbean Nations

With a growing number of Western Countries including the US, UK and the European Union tightening their immigration and visa polices, citizens of African countries are finding it harder to travel abroad. Given the odds, global residence and citizenship advisory firms like Henley & Partners and CS Global Partners are seeing a surge of wealthy Africans interested in acquiring citizenship of a second country in exchange for a sizable financial contribution to the passport host country’s economy in a process termed “citizenship by investment.” In the 12 months to November, Kenya saw a growth in enquiries about citizenship by investment of 116% according to Henley & Partners.
