The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis has a long running “Citizenship-by-investment” program attracting foreigners, who make a substantial contribution to the development of the country. Investors along with any family members, can directly qualify for citizenship through investment, either by making a donation or investment in real estate purchase.
St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Options
There are two main ways to achieve St. Kitts/Nevis citizenship and a second passport:
- Contribution to Sustainable Growth Fund (Fund)
- The Real Estate Option
Both programs allow the acquisition of citizenship by a direct contribution to development projects in the nation. By option one, a family or individual qualifies to apply for citizenship through an investment in designated real estate. Through option 2, a family or individual qualifies to apply for citizenship through a financial contribution made to the HRF, providing assistance for the Government and local citizens to recover after the devastation created by the Hurricane.
St Kitts Citizenship by Investment Through a Non-Refundable Contribution to the Sustainable Growth Fund (Fund)
This option was created in April 2018 to assist the Government with support of the economic growth of the country, funding of school construction and developments in the educational sector, support tourism sector, promote environment friendly conditions for the country, mitigate effects and medicate the effects of climate change as well as improve medical facilities in St.Kitts and Nevis.
Applications for a single investor through Fund option besides other standard Government processing and due diligence fees will require a non-refundable contribution of:
- $150,000 (one hundred fifty thousand United States Dollars).
For investors with larger families an extra non-refundable contribution of US $25,000 for spouse and US $10,000 per each dependent.
