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.

Advantages of Citizenship
Investment Options
Option 1 - CONTRIBUTION: Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF)

Through the SGF, an applicant’s contribution is made directly to a government-held fund, with the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) being able to check receipt immediately and speed up the application process. 

The Sustainable Growth Fund was established with a view to facilitating economic development and social upliftment in SKN. The SGF is also used to provide financial support to educational institutions and medical facilities in SKN, as well as to provide additional funding for the construction of infrastructure, the development of local tourism, the preservation of local culture and heritage and the support of sustainable growth initiatives in SKN.


 

SGF Limited Time Offer: 1 January 2023 – 30 June 2023

 

To further enhance the attractiveness of the CBI Programme, the CIU has decided make a Limited Time Offer (LTO) for a period of 6 months from 1 January to 30 June 2023. CBI applications submitted under the LTO will benefit from the reduction of the minimum amount of contribution payable by applicants and the shortening of processing timeframe from 90 days to 60 days.

Option 2 - CONTRIBUTION: Public Good Investment Option (PGIO)

From January 2023 onwards, the Alternative Investment Option (AIO) under the current CBI Programme is to be replaced by the newly introduced Public Good Investment Option (PGIO), where the minimum investment per application is US$175,000 in an Approved Public Good Project, payable to an Approved Public Good Investor. 

 

The PGIO will focus on effecting real transformation for the country by investing into areas that will benefit the citizens of St Kitts and Nevis – these projects will maximise local employment, transfer technological skills and increase capacity building.

More information on this option will be provided soon.

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 Private Home Sale Investment Option is now a permanent investment option under the CBI Programme, where the minimum investment per application is US$400,000 in a private single-family dwelling house designated as an Approved Private Home.
