A well-known tourist destination with a mild tropical climate, clear blue waters, and regular direct flights to Europe and North America, St. Kitts and Nevis is a highly sought-after location for foreigners to permanently reside in due to its stable and wealthy economy. The two-island Caribbean country in the West Indies boasts a high standard of living, excellent healthcare standards, a low tax regime, and a strong political infrastructure.
The St. Kitts and Nevis economic citizenship program was established in 1984 by means of foreign investment and is the oldest such program in the world. The program offers a highly effective and efficient immigrant investor scheme whereby the investor is able to gain a second passport and citizenship through naturalisation.

St. Kitts and Nevis provides foreign investors with two options to apply for second citizenship: to either invest in the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF) by means of a cash investment, or make an investment in a real estate project.

Once the applicant has chosen the category, he/she then must deposit the full investment amount into a Government Escrow account. Their funds will be released to them upon approval of their residency application.
Applications can only be handled by an authorised local service provider or lawyer.
