Applicants willing to make a contribution of at least $150,000 are eligible to receive citizenship within just 60 days.
A passport from St Kitts & Nevis grants you visa-free entry to over 150 countries – including all EU countries. The program is ideal for investors who don’t want to live on the islands, and you won’t even have to visit the island to gain citizenship. Added benefits of the program include the ability to bring your spouse, dependent children and dependent parents aged 55 or over, as well as no tax chargeable on worldwide income.
St Kitts & Nevis’ citizenship by investment program was established in 1984 which makes it the longest-running program of its kind in the world. The aim of the program is to attract investment to benefit the development of the country and further its economic diversification. In return, applicants can choose between two straightforward routes which both offer speedy citizenship at relatively low amounts (compared with European golden visa programs).
The processing time for each application currently stands at around four to six months for either investment option.
However, from October 2016 the government added a 60-day accelerated process option for an additional fee of $25,000 for main applicant plus $20,000 for each dependant over 16. There is also $500 passport fee for each applicant under the accelerated process option. These payments include due diligence fees and speed up the process to a maximum of 60 days – but applications have been known to be completed within just 45 days. This makes St Kitts and Nevis’ golden visa program even faster than Cyprus’ program.
