This option requires a minimum investment of US$400,000, with a 7-year holding period for condominiums only.
The Private Home Sale Investment starts at US$800,000 for single-family private dwellings, if owned by a SKN citizen, also requiring a 7-year holding period.

Ensuring the utmost integrity and credibility, the St. Kitts & Nevis CBI programme now includes mandatory interviews. Additionally, the due diligence fees have been updated to provide a seamless application experience:
