The Citizenship by Investment (CBI or CIP) programme in St Kitts and Nevis is the oldest 2nd passport programme in the world. It has been in operation since 1984 and is the most well-known. As dependents, the programme accepts spouses, infants, and parents. Only certified agents who are licenced with the government may apply for the programme.
The option of donation and real estate are available through St Kitts & Nevis economic citizenship programme. It is necessary to keep the real estate investment for at least 5 or 7 years. Under the Accelerated Application Phase, the process can be completed in as little as two months (AAP). The passport of St Kitts and Nevis entitles the holder to visa-free travel to several countries, including the Schengen region of Europe for 90 days in 180 days and Russia for 90 days. The tax system in St Kitts and Nevis is also very favourable, with no personal income tax.
The St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship By Investment unit grants citizenship through donation and real estate investment. The St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment programme ensures that each citizenship applicant is fully vetted, legitimate, and not a security or other threat to the country.

Under the CBI scheme, St Kitts and Nevis have initiated a new Sustainable Growth Fund. The SGF needs a donation of US $150,000, including government fees, from a single applicant. Following gradual measures, the contribution for a family of up to four people is $195,000 for up to four people.
Additional dependents, regardless of Age: US$10,000
After deciding on an Approved Agent, the applicant must collect all necessary information and send his application to the CIU. The applicant can use the Accelerated Application Process to submit his or her application (AAP). An application can be completed in as little as 60 days by the AAP, with some applications being completed in as little as 45 days. The processing and due diligence fees are included in the application. The CIU will acknowledge receipt of the file to the Approved Agent once it has been sent.
The CIU will perform due diligence on the file once it has been received. If the application is accepted, the applicant may obtain a letter of approval in principle, demanding that the remaining transactions be completed. Document evidence must be submitted to the CIU after the transactions are completed.
You will pick up your passport and citizenship certificate at the nearest St Kitts consulate or embassy once your file is completed. The citizenship process does not require an oath of allegiance.
