Saint Kitts and Nevis

A picturesque island in the Caribbean boasting UNESCO World Heritage Sites and many luxurious resorts dotting the white beaches, St. Kitts and Nevis is all this and lots more. As it was among the first of the ‘West Indies’ islands to be colonized, it is called the ‘Mother Colony of the West Indies.’ St. Kitts and Nevis consist of two main islands, St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Kitts also hosts the capital Basseterre. The island was previously dependent upon the sugar industry for its revenues but has since then shifted to being a financial services and tourism hub.

Saint Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investments Overview

The islands started the Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) in 1984 and it is amongst the longest-running programs in the world. The program was revamped in 2011 based on the new Saint Christopher and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Regulations, 201l. The new regulations streamlined the process and now the entire process is run by a special unit called ‘Citizenship-by-Investment Unit (CIU)’ directly under the Office of the Prime Minister. Citizenship under the new regulations is valid for a lifetime and there is no need for any visits or actual residency in the Islands.
