1999
CI FOUNDER BRIAN DOBBIN CREATES THE NEWFOUNDLAND PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM

Citizens International founder and entrepreneur Brian Dobbin creates the Newfoundland Provincial Nominee Program with the Newfoundland government to raise citizenship investment for the Canadian province’s industries, namely aquaculture and tourism development. By 2004 c.1000 jobs have been created from the program’s investment in Newfoundland and 300 immigrant investors were given the opportunity to achieve Canadian Permanent Residency.

REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT AND INTRODUCTION OF CIP EXPERTISE IN ST. KITTS & NEVIS

After investing in several developments in St. Kitts & Nevis, we discovered the island’s citizenship investment program averaging c.20 new citizens per year since its creation in 1985, making it the world’s first such program. By introducing citizenship investment legal expertise from Canada to the St. Kitts Immigration Minister, the seeds for the rise of the St. Kitts & Nevis CIP are sown.

WE REBRAND AND PROMOTE THE MARRIOTT RESIDENCES IN ST. KITTS INTERNATIONALLY

We partner with the Marriott Residences to re-package their apartments and promote them in Asia and other countries. The units sell out within 18 months and have been at over 90% occupancy ever since. We actively search for and create the best real estate investment opportunities to offer exclusively to our client family. We focus on newly built, top waterfront locations at the highest end of the property market operated by experienced international teams.
