•St. Kitts & Nevis Citizenship

Saint Kitts and Nevis is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis has a long-running “Citizenship-by-investment” programme attracting foreigners who make a substantial contribution to the development of the country. Investors along with any family members can directly qualify for citizenship through investment, either by making a donation or investment in real estate purchase.

  • A property purchased under the Private Home plan shall not be resold for a period of at least 5 years

Alternative Investment Option

The Alternative Investment Option (AIO) is a third form of investment under the Citizenship by Investment Programme. The AIO will provide the Government with the means of achieving its capital investments goals without having to endure the drawbacks associated with the use of its existing limited resources or from taking additional debt.


Potential projects should be identified and listed by the Government or can be brought forward by private individuals with access to financing who approach the Government with potential projects not on the Government’s infrastructure list. However, the asset when completed and operated for a reasonable period of time (that allows for a reasonable return on investment) must be turned over to the Government in a maintained condition consistent with prudent ownership.

For those projects on the Government’s infrastructure list, they can be advertised seeking expressions of interest for initial review by the Government and the creation of individual project “short lists”. The Government will endeavour to ensure that to the extent practicable, shortlisted companies will not only maximize local employment but also embark upon programs including transfer of technology and capacity building.


There will be two categories of AIO:

  • A Private Enterprise Developer (PED), where the built or funded asset is privately owned. In this option, the minimum Unit of Investment will be US$ 200,000.00 and standard real estate government fees will apply.
  • A Public Good Project Developer (PGPD), where the State owns the asset at the end of an agreement. These projects are fully funded by the PGPD and locked in “up front”. The minimum Unit of Investment will be US$ 175,000.00 and a government fee of US$ 50,000.00 will apply for a single applicant or up to a family of four. All other fees will apply as per the real estate option.

Upon submission of an application, non-refundable due diligence and processing fees must also be paid. These fees amount to US$7,500 for the main applicant, and US$4,000 for each dependant of the main applicant who is over the age of 16 years.

On approval in principle of an application made through a real estate investment, a Government fee applies, as follows:

  • Main applicant: US$35,050
  • Spouse of the main applicant: US$20,050
  • Any other qualified dependant of the main applicant regardless of age: US$10,050


In addition to these fees, real estate buyers should be aware of purchase costs (mainly compulsory insurance fund contributions and conveyance fees).
