St. Kitts Citizenship

The St. Kitts & Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment programme is the oldest of its kind in the world, and was established in 1984. The Government of St. Kitts & Nevis introduced this programme to attract investors of good character to make substantial investments and benefit the development of the country.

In return, these investors can apply for citizenship within the relevant laws, guidelines and regulations. Interested investors who have made a minimal investment of US$ 400,000 in designated real estate and fulfill the formal character requirement are given the opportunity to apply for citizenship within a strict legal regulatory framework. The application process can take as little as little as four months. The purchase of any Kittitian Hill property will allow an applicant who fulfills the formal and character requirements set by the government to qualify for St. Kitts & Nevis citizenship.

A government authority named ‘The Citizenship-by-Investment Unit (CIU)’ was established to manage all things related to Citizenship-by-Investment in St. Kitts & Nevis.
