Curacao is one of many islands in the Caribbean taking advantage of the high demand for citizenship through investment programs. This gorgeous Dutch-Caribbean islands offers one of the most attractive programs out there and it is currently one of the most sought after second passports not only in the Caribbean, but in the world.
Curacao separates itself from other similar programs in the Caribbean because it chooses to be a more expensive and selective option. Curacao’s goal is to target high net worth individuals who are not only looking for a quick second passport, but who wish to call Curacao their home.
As of the writing of this article Curacao offers a residency through investment which they are calling an Investor’s Permit. Depending on the amount of money you invest in Curacao is how much your permit will last.
If you invest $280,000 you get a residence permit that lasts a period of three years; $425,000 gives you a residence permit of five years; $850,000 gives you a residence permit that lasts an indefinite amount of time.
Best part about this is that the investment that you make in Curacao can be done in a number of different ways. You can invest in real estate by purchasing property, making a contribution to a local company, or opening your company to create jobs and make an impact in the local economy.
I highly recommend you take into consideration purchasing real estate in the country if you desire to become a citizen of Curacao through investment. The housing market in Curacao is rock solid and you can expect it to continue growing in the upcoming years.
Once your investment is approved you automatically qualify for a Residency in Curacao and in five years time you can get your second passport. Since Curacao is an overseas territory of the Dutch Nation you get a second passport from a European company.
You read that correctly, by getting a second passport from the Caribbean country of Curacao you become a part of the European Union. No other country in the Caribbean offers that, which makes the high demand for a passport from Curacao completely understandable.
The Dutch passport is currently one of the most powerful in the world with visa free access to over 180 countries. That is just one of many benefits that you can obtain from having a second passport from Curacao.Some of the requirements one must complete in order to qualify for the citizenship by investment program in Curacao are;
Clean criminal record

It should be noted that you won’t be able to qualify for the program if you have a criminal record or if you can’t show where you are getting your funds from. Due diligence in Curacao is stricter than other Caribbean countries and if you are caught trying to bend the rules you won’t be allowed to apply a second time.
