The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis has the oldest established “Citizenship-by-investment” programme (dating back 1984), which has garnered several Global awards. Investors along with their family members, can directly qualify for citizenship through investment, either by purchasing a pre-approved CBI investment property or making a donation to the Sustainable Growth Fund.
These properties are all pre-approved for the Citizenship by Investment programme.
St Kitts Nevis Realty can assist in your application process for CBI in either real estate or donation options, we are happy to discuss your requirements and tailor the right programme to your needs.
Full ownership of a Citizenship property starts with an investment of US$ 400,00.00 which must be held for five years before resale.
The principal applicant can apply for CBI on the unit with family members with the additional fees:
Government Fees: US$ 35,000.00 Principal Applicant | US$ 20,000.00 Spouse | US$ 10,000.00 Per Dependant.
Registration Fees: US$ 7,500.00 Principal Applicant | US$ 4,000.00 Spouse | US$ 4,000.00 Dependant over 16 years of age.
A real estate investment of US$200,000 applies to a shared ownership, where two principals apply on one qualifying real estate option. A shared option must be held for 7 years before resale. The same fee structure applies.
