  1. This makes the case stronger to sell more without the public’s knowledge.
    What about the other security and privacy concerns. What does Canadian Bank Note have to say about all this?
    It is a criminal offence to profit from the sale of our passports. Who are the Sellers and who are the Buyers? Where are the funds being deposited?

    • I just cannot connect the dots here as to what you are trying to say. Your comments seem too disconnected from the article which gave evidence of the ranking of passports.
      As Prime Minister in waiting, please take your time and elaborate on your points. Alternatively, if you wish to comment via bullet points, then keep them relevant and concise.
      All the very best on your aspirations.

  2. I have dual citizenship USA and SVG. I treasure my SVG Citizenship much more than my USA Citizenship. The SVG Citizenship allows me now to go to anyplace I have any desire to go to. The USA Citizenship goes along with the people of many nations seeing you as someone with an arrogant government with a cold-war mentality that believes they have the right to tell the world what to do, who they can be friends with, who they can trade with etc… Is trongly disagree with our present leaders economic and financial philosophy but his Foreign Policy is usually very good and has a strong element of courage. Too bad we cannot unite (politics does not work that way) so that he can hand over the finance to Godwin Friday or possibly Ivan O’Neal so that the country can start to develop instead of going backwards. In any case, I am more proud of my Vincentian Citizenship than my US Citizenship, in spite of all the problems we have, most of which has to do with our very poor economics and our bad unfair concessionary system that bases import privileges on only on your wealth or political relationships rather than intellectual or potential ability to develop the nation. The USA and Singapore developed very fast because they have/had a better system than most of those in the Caribbean. I will favor my SVG Citizenship even more when we one day in the area of economics start to “get it right”.
