St. Kitts and NevisCitizenship by Investment Program

Overview

St. Kitts and Nevis is located in the northern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean, a twin-island country famed for its dormant and extinct volcanoes, its stretches of golden beaches, and its captivating history. It has been independent since 1983 and is a member of the United Nations (UN), the Organization of American States (OAS), the British Commonwealth, Caricom and many other international organizations. The official and business language is English. The economy is characterized by its dominant tourism, agriculture and light manufacturing industries. As tourism grows the demand for vacation property increases in conjunction. The workforce is well-educated, English-speaking and friendly. The Government grants tax breaks, guaranteed repatriation of profits and concessions on import duties. There are no income or capital gains taxes, no net wealth taxes and no inheritance or gift taxes in St. Kitts and Nevis. Extensive legislation has been introduced by the Government to attract financial services business to the island. St.Kitts allows foreigners to obtain the status of St. Kitts citizen by means of a government sponsored investment program called Citizenship-by-Investment, which is the world’s first-ever citizenship through investment without prior residence requirement. Established in 1984, St. Kitts' citizenship program is the oldest, most trusted and most successful economic citizenship program of this kind in the world.

Legal Basis

The Citizenship by Investment Program was established in 1984, making it the longest established program of this kind in the world. It has distinguished itself from many other similar programs by rigidly enforced investment requirements and meticulous due diligence procedures. The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis utilizes this program to attract investors of good character to make a substantial contribution to the development of the Federation. These investors are then given the opportunity to apply for citizenship and passport within the strict guidelines of the law and the relevant regulations. When they acquire citizenship under the St. Kitts & Nevis citizenship program, they and their family enjoy full citizenship for life, which can be passed on to future generations by descent. As citizens of St. Kitts & Nevis, they have the right to take up residence in St. Kitts & Nevis as well as in most of the CARICOM member countries at any time and for any length of time. St. Kitts and Nevis passport holders also enjoy a passport with an excellent reputation and very good visa-free travel, including to all of the European Union, the Schengen region, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Accordingly, the St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship-by-investment program is the most attractive option if one is looking to acquire a second citizenship through investment without prior residence requirements.
