More Firms Blacklisted as Global Number of Accredited CBI Agents Remains Stable


In the year that has passed since last we provided a comprehensive overview, the total number of (locally) accredited citizenship by investment agents globally has barely budged, shrinking slightly from 369 in October 2022 to 364 today.

Montenegro’s CIP is now closed, pulling the global total downward by three accredited agents. The biggest change was observed in Saint Kitts & Nevis, which now has eight fewer agents than at the same time last year (all agents had to re-qualify following last year’s change in management). Malta added a net of six new agents for its MEIN policy (and MPRP), while Saint Lucia’s grew by a net of three. Vanuatu’s list of agents, remarkably, added one agent to its already long list, and lost none, despite no longer having Schengen access.

Antigua’s roster shrank by a net three names and Grenada’s by a net two, while no net change was observed in Dominica.

Blacklist changes

The new administration in Saint Kitts & Nevis has evidently decided not to maintain a public blacklist any longer, removing a cloud of ignominy from above the eleven companies previously named. On the other hand, Saint Lucia's CIP now keeps a list, with four names on it so far. The official blacklists now state the following:

Dominica CIP Saint Lucia CIP Grenada CIP
Alt Group (Iraq) Europe Axis Immigration Services (UAE) Oleg Firer
Canadian Bureau (UAE) Canada Axis Immigration
Dina Sky Immigration Services (Iraq) Concordia Consultancies
Jefferson & York Businessmen Services (UAE) Marketing Services
Mina Yousefi Immigration Services (Iran)
Nationwide Middle East Properties LLC (UAE)
