The government of St. Lucia has introduced a new option into its citizenship by investment portfolio. The Covid-19 Relief Bond was launched on 12th May and will run until 31st December 2020.

Applicants can now invest from $250,000 for a single applicant or $300,000 for a family of four. The bonds, which are at 0% interest need to be held for five years. Further government fees and due diligence fees apply.

With the return of capital after 5 years the bonds will have a lower total outlay than the existing $100,000 donation. Applicants need to consider of course that their capital is tied up with zero return for that time period. Current bonds in St. Lucia are issued between 1% and 3% and historic bonds between 5% and 7%.

Further changes were announced with fees for the real estate option being reduced.

On 13th October 2022, St Lucia’s Citizenship by Investment Unit released an official memo stating that the Covid-19 Relief Bond programme will expire as of 31st December 2022, and will not be extended again. Act quickly to meet this deadline.
