St. Kitts & Nevis Expands Routes to Citizenship With Alternative Investment Options

Feb 7, 2022

The crystal-clear waters and majestic mountains surrounding the charming islands of St. Kitts and Nevis are not the only reasons to set sail on a new adventure. In addition to the current lineup of real estate and donation opportunities, the Caribbean state recently announced new routes to citizenship with alternative investment choices. The additions are guaranteed to expand the diversity of St. Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship by Investment Program.

The new Alternative Investment Option (AIO) accommodates projects that support national goals like infrastructure development and optimization, local employment, resource management, and the creation of sustainable and affordable housing.

These projects may be proposed by private entities with the ability to partially fund pitched initiatives or may be selected and listed as an AIO by the government following feasibility assessments. The development projects can be either privately or publicly owned, with the developer or government assuming ownership of the asset respectively.

The new investment channels append the current array of options, which include:

Donation to the Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF)

A minimum investment of $150,000 to the Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF) contributes to local initiatives in education, healthcare, local enterprise, and national and infrastructural development. 

Real-Estate Investment

A minimum investment of $200,000 into a government-approved, real estate project entitles the investor to a return-generating share of a luxury development. This may then be sold after 7 years, making the buyer eligible for citizenship. St. Kitts and Nevis have a reputation for high-quality projects and branded properties, offering a secure option to investors looking for a return on their investment.

For a limited time, a $400,000 minimum investment in a qualifying private residential property will also make the investor eligible for citizenship of St. Kitts and Nevis.

All three investment routes support the inclusion of children up to the age of 30, as well as parents and siblings. The whole family can join the process toward citizenship.

Founded in 1984, St. Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship by Investment Program is one of the oldest and most established programs in the world. The recent offerings are not only promising opportunities for investors but also resourceful means for the two-island state to avail of potential development projects towards sustainable economic growth.
