EU representatives, including the Head of Visa Policy and liaison in Barbados, engaged in initial discussions with Caribbean CBI countries at the Intercontinental Dominica Cabrits Resort. Meetings have been held with Dominica, Saint Kitts & Nevis, and Grenada, with discussions scheduled for Antigua & Barbuda and Grenada later this week.

The EU emphasizes the importance of addressing concerns about CBI programs, particularly related to potential national security and immigration risks.

The EU warns that visa-free Schengen access could be at risk if these concerns are not adequately addressed. Specific worries include the low-cost/high-volume CBI model and irregular discounting schemes.

The EU points to concerns about Caribbean Galaxy’s past projects in Saint Kitts and questions its recent acquisition of CBI units in Saint Lucia.

While some express constructive and informative dialogues, the EU suggests a significant increase in CBI program prices and raises concerns about Grenada’s acceptance of Russian applicants.

The EU acknowledges the economic role of CBI but signals potential visa policy changes for security reasons.
