For investors, the number of destinations available without the need for a prior visa means being able to attend business meetings in one country and checking in on family in another country in the same day. This flexibility is invaluable in this post-covid era.

Discussions had also started back then with Foreign Affairs Minister of São Tomé and Príncipe, H.E. Ms. Edite do Ramos da Costa Ten-jua.
The recent agreement with São Tomé and Principe now allows St. Kitts and Nevis passport holders visa-free or visa-upon-arrival access to 161 countries worldwide.
