Since 1984 St. Kitts and Nevis has operated what has now become the most longstanding existing citizenship by investment program. Under the 1984 Citizenship Act and relevant regulations, Investors who make a minimum investment of US$400,000 in an approved project on the island or a minimum contribution of US$250,000 into the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation are eligible to acquire citizenship by means of this substantial investment.


The government has positioned St. Kitts as a hub for international investment and made this program attractive to foreign investors by offering a multitude of substantial incentives.

The benefits include:

  • Receiving a St. Kitts and Nevis Passport and thereafter enjoying visa-free travel to more than 120 countries and territories around the world, including the United Kingdom, the European Union, Canada, Hong Kong and Switzerland.
