Mr Les Khan, the CEO of the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Unit, announced last week that they received more applications in 2018 than in the previous four years combined. This comes as no surprise to us as here at La Vida we also experienced first hand an exceptional increase in the number of applications we personally processed in the last year.

The popular ‘Hurricane Relief Fund” which ran earlier in the year, ending in March 2018, was largely responsible for the record amount of applicants. The special promotion meant that St Kitts became one of the most affordable Caribbean programmes for families of four. Whilst the Hurricane Relief fund is now closed, the CIU have since launched the Sustainable Growth Fund. The competitive price level combined with the programme’s longevity and passport strength makes it a very attractive option. 

Single applicants need to make a contribution to the Sustainable Growth Fund of $150,000 + costs. Should investors prefer to go down the real estate route, they can co-invest in a government approved project from $200,000 (two investors splitting the cost of acquiring a US$400,000 unit).

Citizens of St. Kitts & Nevis enjoy visa free travel to over 165 countries including the EU Schengen visa zone, the UK, Ireland and Switzerland. Dependent children up to the age of 30 years old can be included along with dependent parents from the age of 55 years.
