Citizenship by Investment: Saint Kitts and Nevis


Created in 1984, almost a decade before other regional CBI programs, Saint Kitts and Nevis continues to grant Citizenship by Investment in as little as four months to qualified applicants, while simultaneously aiding the dual-island nation’s development. For a second passport from St. Kitts, investors may pursue two options: monetary donation through the country’s Sustainable Growth Fund, or property investment via its CBI program. 


About St. Kitts and Nevis


The smallest and least populous Caribbean country, the dual-island St. Kitts and Nevis has an outsized regional presence due to its dramatic natural beauty and luxurious accommodations. Having gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1983, its tiny population of almost 55,000 people speaks English, and enjoys a stable, democratic government, black and white sand beaches, and a low-key, yet elegant lifestyle.
