St. Kitts & Nevis

St Kitts Citizenship by Investment Program.

The St. Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment Program is the oldest of its kind in the world. Established in 1984 the program grants citizenship through donation or real estate investment to qualified applicants. The government requires investment of either $250,000 as a donation to the SIDF or investment of $400,000 in real estate plus related government and due diligence fees.

In September 2017 the St. Kitts government launched a new but temporary offering whereby investors can contribute $150,000 to a new hurricane relief fund to qualify for full family citizenship. This option will expire in March 2018.

Saint Kitts and Nevis has no tax on overseas income or capital and a second citizenship may complement existing tax planning and wealth protection strategies. Citizens of St. Kitts & Nevis enjoy visa free travel to over 139 countries including the EU Schengen visa zone, the UK, Ireland and Switzerland.

Donation to Government Fund

Single applicants can contribute $250,000 to the SIDF (Sugar Industry Diversification Fund) or, for a limited time only, a family of up to four people can contribute $150,000 to the Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund. Both options qualify in the same way for citizenship and we urge investors to take advantage of the $150,000 family application offer while it is available. Please contact our consultants for details.

Real Estate Investment

The property investment must be in designated real estate projects and the investment can be sold after five years. La Vida offers investment in a five star resort run by one of the most exclusive hospitality brands in the world. A $285 million project by a very luxurious brand. The property is fully furnished and the resort offers an onsite casino, restaurants, spa, and beach clubs. Sitting on Half Moon Bay and just a few minutes from Basseterre and Turtle Bay projected rental returns are 2-5% based on 50% occupancy. The owner is entitled to 5 weeks usage each year.

Second Passport

The St. Kitts program is ideal for investors needing a second passport for travel and ease of access to many countries. The European golden visa programmes are more suited to those wanting frequent European travel, residency and potential EU citizenship.
