Many people want to include family members when they apply for a residence visa, however it’s important to know who you can include before you decide which program to apply too. Most applicants wish to include dependents in their application such as their spouse, children and/ or parents who are financially dependent on them. Any children that wish to be included, must prove to be financially dependent on the main applicant or enrolled in full time studies.
If the main applicant has future plans to have children, then this information should also be shared since there are programs that will not include newborn babies once the citizenship has been issued. Currently only Grenada offers siblings to join the CBI program and unmarried brothers or sisters of the main applicant or spouse, however they cannot be divorced or have any children in order to be considered.
The date of birth of the original applicant, as well as that of any dependents is important since there is a minimum and maximum legal age that must not be surpassed with CBI programs at the time of application. Make sure that all dependents are within the legal ages to be considered as part of the application. Since each CBI program has it’s own set of rules for adding dependents, it is important to discuss all details of your intended family dependents with our team of citizenship experts in order to fully understand the programs. Not providing the correct information in the beginning can lead to timely and costly delays in your application.
