About St. kitts and nevis

The two islands country, once mostly a sugar farming area, transformed itself into a safe and desirable tourist, and now citizenship, destination. St Kitts and Nevis with its sunny and sandy beaches, good health care, low crime rate as well as good national infrastructure, has turned into one of the fastest growing economies in the Caribbean.

Saint Kitts and Nevis were among the first islands in the Caribbean to be colonized by Europeans. Saint Kitts was home to the first British and French colonies in the Caribbean, and thus has also been titled “The Mother Colony of the West Indies”. It is also the most recent British territory in the Caribbean to become independent, gaining independence in 1983.

In addition to its great passport, St. Kitts and Nevis offers its investor migrants great offshore banking and a wide variety of insurance services in a tax-friendly environment. For example, the country guarantees financial privacy by not making public any information about owners and top managers of offshore businesses located there. Official language is English.

The federation comprises two islands: Nevis (with an area of some 93.2 km2) and St. Kitts (with 168.4 km2) and forms part of the group of islands known as the Lesser Antilles.

Investing in Saint Kitts and Nevis clearly opens up some great opportunities. Holding a passport of that developed Caribbean nation allows one to enjoy all the benefits given by the government to locals whether inside or outside the country.

In late-September 1998, Hurricane Georges caused approximately $458,000,000 in damages and limited GDP growth for the year and beyond. Meanwhile, the sugar industry, in decline for years and propped up only by government subsidies, was closed completely in 2005 One of the initiatives to support the island nation’s economy is the introduction of a Citizenship by Investment Program.

The currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (EC$). Saint Kitts And Nevis is a member of the British Commonwealth, CARICOM, the Organization of American States, and many other international organizations.

The Citizenship by Investment Program was established in 1984, allowing foreign investors to acquire citizenship under certain conditions. This makes it the oldest existing citizenship by investment program and one of the most reputable in existence.

The Citizenship by Investment Program requires a person to make a significant economic contribution to the Country. In exchange and subject to stringent application procedures, including thorough background checks, the applicants and their families are granted citizenship.

The Saint Kitts & Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment Unit (CIU), the government authority responsible for administering the program, is responsible for the processing of all applications. The CIU examines the application thoroughly and, if deemed necessary, may request the applicant to attend an interview.

In April 2018, Saint Kitts & Nevis launched a new permanent investment fund to replace the temporary Hurricane Relief Fund set up to address the devastation caused by the 2017 hurricanes in the Caribbean.

There are two investment options available:

  • A one-time donation to the Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF) of a minimum non-refundable amount of US$150,000. This is a governmental fund of Saint Kitts and Nevis lunched in April 2018, which allocates the resources for the development of healthcare, alternative energy, education. The fund also contributes to the improvement of the tourism and culture sectors.
