The St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship program was introduced in 1984, and is the longest-running citizenship by investment program in the Caribbean. No physical residency is required to secure citizenship. The passport includes eligibility for all family members, and there is no income, capital gains or inheritance tax to pay. All investments are granted only after official approval.
Applicants can select from 2 investment options - a donation to the government, or investment in real estate. In the case of real estate, the property may not be sold within a 5-year period.
A St. Kitts and Nevis passport is a low-cost second pathway, available for citizens of many countries around the world. High-risk country citizens, however, are not welcome. Due to an enhanced due diligence process, this passport is not recommended for investors with negative history in their biography.
