Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment

Our Programs

Saint Lucia is an eastern Caribbean Island nestled between the islands of Martinique and Saint Vincent & the Grenadines and is the only sovereign nation named for a woman. Saint Lucia launched their brand new citizenship by investment (CBI) program in 2015 and recently (2016) enacted provisions in their citizenship law granting immediate citizenship to foreign investors who invest in real estate, Government Bonds or a business investment in the country. It is the only investment program in the Caribbean that offers non-interest bearing Government bonds as a route to Citizenship.

Country Information

Saint Lucia is a fertile island in the Caribbean Sea. Its closest neighbors are the islands of Martinique, to the north, and Saint Vincent, to the south-west. It was formed by volcanic activity. Her geographic features include a central ridge of mountains, many rivers and boiling sulfur springs, surrounded by sandy beaches. The entire population of Saint Lucia is approximately 184,815 people. Whilst it may be a small country, centuries of settlers from all around the world have made it rich in culture. Saint Lucia is a democratic country, run by a Prime Minister and a Government elected by the people. In 1979, Saint Lucia became a member of The Commonwealth. Saint Luciaโ€™s economy depends primarily on tourism and agriculture โ€“ particularly bananas and other exotic fruits, such as mangoes. Clothing and electronic goods are also exported too, but on a smaller scale.
