This option is one of the most affordable approaches, but it is also non-refundable, meaning the money cannot be recouped and it making a future profit on the investment is impossible. A contribution to the National Economic Fund is an exemplary way to invest in St. Lucia. A single applicant is required to donate $100,000 USD in order to be eligible for citizenship by investment.
There are fees associated with adding family members to the application as well. For the main applicant and a spouse, a $140,000 contribution is required. A family of four, including the main applicant, spouse, and two qualifying dependents will cost $150,000. Additional dependents are $15,000 each.
The due diligence fees associated with the application process are $7,500 for the main applicant and $5,000 for dependents over 16 years of age.
