Application Process

The approval process for the Small Investment Program should not take longer than 6-8 weeks if the information requested in the definitive application is fully completed and MIGA is supplied with all relevant project documentation.

Once the guarantee proposal has been approved, the investor will receive a contract of guarantee, and on receipt, will have a period of six weeks to sign the contract.  If the investor decides not to go ahead within this period, MIGA will terminate the guarantee process.

To avoid delays in the application process, business and financial plans should be in place and financial projections available prior to filing the definitive application.
