Saint Lucia already offer one of the most competitively priced Citizenship by Investment programmes in the industry, but in a recent bid to enhance their offering they have announced some attractive new changes surrounding the definition of dependent applicants. For a breakdown of the amendments please see below:

Saint Lucia Programme amendments:

  1. The age of dependent children has been increased from eighteen years to twenty-one years and there is no longer a requirement to demonstrate that the child is in full-time education.
  2. The age of dependent adult children has been increased from twenty-five years to thirty years with no requirement to demonstrate that the child is in full-time education. Adult children must still be fully supported financially by the main applicant.
  3. The age requirement for dependent parents of the main applicant or of his or her spouse has been lowered from over sixty-five years to over fifty-five years. Dependent parents must also prove they are fully supported by the main applicant.
  4. Main applicants can also now include unmarried siblings below eighteen years of age providing they have received the consent of their parent or guardian.

Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment is available via three main routes, a donation to the government, a refundable 5-year investment into government bonds or a property investment. To find out more about the programme and how you and your family could benefit, please contact our experts.
