Saint Kitts & Nevis citizenship by investment

 

ST KITTS & NEVIS CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT

 

The St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship by investment program has been running since 1984. It’s the oldest second citizenship program in the world and it remains one of the most popular passport schemes. The St Kitts CBI offers applicants a donation option and 2 real estate investment options. Donation amounts to the Sustainable Growth Fund were reduced in 2017, which has made St Kitts citizenship very affordable. The St. Kitts and Nevis passport provides visa-free travel to the EU for 90 days in a 180-day period. St Kitts also has a tax-friendly environment.
