Saint Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment

Our Programs

Introduced in 1984, the St Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment program is considered the oldest and most internationally renowned investment program of its type. Over recent times the Citizenship Investment Unit has strengthened the overall security and attractiveness of the program and it remains one of the strongest CBI (Citizenship by Investment) programs in the world. This continued commitment is why the St Kitts & Nevis CBI program is widely considered the Platinum Standard.

Country Information

Nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean lies the sister islands of Saint Kitts and Nevis. They were affectionately known as the Gibraltar of the West Indies due to the body of water that separates the two islands. The islands are dominated by two dormant volcanos, Mount Nevis and Mount Liamuiga. Both islands offer an easy-going lifestyle, where life is centred around the peaceful mantra of live and let live. In recent times, the Federal Government has spent considerable time and money improving the islands infrastructure, with both islands benefiting from a recent boom in the construction and tourism sectors. Accessibility has never been so strong, with daily direct/indirect flights to the US, UK, Europe, Caribbean, and South America. Both islands are equipped with the ability to easily accommodate and manage private jets.
