ST LUCIA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT

St lucia citizenship investment passport
 

The St Lucia citizenship by investment program has been running since 2015. It is the most recent second citizenship program to emerge from the Caribbean, and it offers 4 investment options to choose from. When it was launched, the program was the most affordable, forcing other CBIs to reduce their rate in time. St Lucia’s passport provides visa-free travel to the EU for 90 days in a 180-day period.
