Caribbean citizenship by investment programs are some of the oldest and most trusted investment options available.
Foreign investors have the opportunity to apply for full-time citizenship in a number of beautiful and financially secure countries including Grenada, Dominica, Antigua & Barbuda, St Kitts & Nevis and St. Lucia.
Christopher Columbus first spotted St. Kitts in 1493 while the island was populated with native tribes. The twin island federation was not colonized, however, until the British arrived in 1623. Its strategic location and valuable sugar trade led to an advanced growth that was among the best in the Colonial Caribbean.
Today St Kitts & Nevis, a British Commonwealth, is an English speaking country with a population of approximately 55,000 inhabitants. The Current GDP is estimated at $1Billion USD. Thousands of students enroll in the offshore US Universities in St. Kitts every year.
St Kitts & Nevis is enjoyed as a popular vacation destination with one of the most seductive locations in the Caribbean. Sunny skies, warm waters and white sandy beaches along with several 5* international hotel chains in operation make the island an ideal getaway for many . Flights are available from North America to St. Kitts & Nevis via San Juan (Puerto Rico). Travelers from London (UK) can opt for a direct flight.
Being the oldest Citizenship by Investment program (1984), St Kitts and Nevis helped pioneer this industry as a response to European subsidies that clobbered its sugar industry. The funds from the program help to support local agriculture and farmers.
The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis has issued more than 10,000 passports since the program’s inception.
