Investment Options

The citizenship program of St. Kitts & Nevis requires making an economic contribution to the country. In exchange, the applicants and their families are granted full citizenship. Citizenship can be obtained through the purchase of Real Estate or a financial contribution to the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF).

The investment property must be from one of the real-estate developments which have been pre-approved by the Government. New regulations passed on the 1st of January 2012 establish that the property may be eligible for use in a subsequent Citizenship via Investment application. The property must be held for 5 years before it can be sold.

Option 1 - Contribution to SIDF

USD 250,000 for single applicant; or
USD 300,000 for applicant with up to three dependants (i.e. one spouse and two children below the age of 18); or
USD 350,000 for applicant with up to five dependants (i.e. one spouse and four children); or
USD 450,000 for applicant with six or more dependants

Fees for background checks are additional from the total financial contribution to the SIDF upon Citizenship approval.

Option 2 - Real Estate

Citizenship can be obtained via the purchase of a property for a minimum investment of USD 400,000 in a Government approved project. An initial deposit of approximately USD 15,000 or 10% (depending on the developer) is payable upon reservation of the property and the balance is payable once Citizenship is approved. In order to obtain the Citizenship the applicant must obtain the title deed of the property. In the event the Citizenship is rejected the initial deposit is fully refundable.

USD 25,000 for spouse;
USD 25,000 for each child under 18 years of age
