An applicant may become a citizen through the Donation Option or Real Estate Option. Under the donation option, the applicant makes an outright payment to the government. The money is not recoverable and he/she gets no return or interest on it. Under the Real Estate Option a person may obtain citizenship by purchasing shares or units in a hotel development approved by the government. The total amount an applicant pays depends on the option he chooses.
