St.Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment

St Kitts Citizenship Program

St Kitts And Nevis Hurricane Relief Fund

St.Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme was established in 1984 and requires an applicant of at least 18 years of age to make an economic contribution to the country. This makes it the oldest citizenship by investment program in the world. The St.Kitts & Nevis passport is very well regarded, as only relatively few passports have been issued under this program. As a result, St.Kitts & Nevis passport holders enjoy a passport with an excellent reputation and very good visa-free travel.

Eligibility for St.Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment 

Under current regulations, to qualify for citizenship of St. Kitts and Nevis under its Citizenship-by-Investment Program, the Government requires, either:

  1. An investment in designated real estate with a value of at least US$ 400,000 plus payment of various registration and other fees (the Real-Estate Option), or
  2. A contribution to the Hurricane Relief Fund of $150,000 for a Main Applicant up to three dependants. Any additional dependent would require a donation of $25,000 each. 

The Hurricane Relief Fund option is available for a six month period ending on March 30th 2018.
