In 1984, the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis established the world’s first Citizenship by Investment Programme. As the oldest and most established of its kind globally, the scheme offers citizenship to reputable individuals and their families through a robust and efficient due diligence process.

Citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis gain visa-free access to over 150 countries and territories, the highest among Caribbean countries with investment-migration schemes (Henley & Partners Passport Index). The scheme offers international mobility to international business centres located in the United Kingdom, the European Schengen Area, Russia, Asia, Africa and Latin America. It also provides leisure opportunities and opens up new cultural and tourism experiences.

Option 3 - REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT

There are two routes available for applicants seeking to qualify for citizenship by investing in real estate: by investing in a pre-approved real estate development or, for a limited time only, through the purchase of qualifying private residential property.
REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENTS

Applicants may qualify for citizenship through an investment in a pre-approved real estate project, which may include hotel shares, villas, and condominium units. The minimum real estate investment required by law is US$200,000 (resalable after 7 years) or US$400,000 (resalable after 5 years) for each main applicant.
PRIVATE HOME SALES

The sale of qualifying private homes under the Citizenship by Investment Programme will be allowed for a limited period of two years, starting November 1st 2020 and ending November 1st 2023. All homes having an appraised value of more than USD 400,000 and that meet the other criteria may qualify for sale under this option.
