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 a minimum donation of $150,000 to the Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF) or investment of $400,000 in real estate (can be reduced to $200,000 for connected investors) plus related government and due diligence fees.

For a limited time only, families of four can benefit from a $45,000 discount on their Citizenship by Investment applications.
Real Estate Investment
Applicants can gain Citizenship in Saint Kitts and Nevis by investing in government-approved real estate developments, such as hotel resorts and touristic properties. La Vida offers a selection of established projects, including exclusive five-star resorts which are managed by globally recognised hotel brands and built by the Caribbean’s most reputable developers. Most options offer a profitable rental return and the real estate can be sold after a mandatory holding period, allowing you to release your capital without affecting your citizenship status. For more details on the available options, please contact our expert advisors.
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.
