How to obtain a St Kitts and Nevis passport

$150,000 contribution to the state economy. This option is non-refundable and not profitable.
Real estate purchase for at least $175,000. For this price, the investor can acquire a share of a social or infrastructure real estate project. If the applicant is willing to invest $200,000 and more, they can purchase a share or a whole property in a state-approved project, such as five-star hotels, resort complexes, and yacht berths. In this case, the investor will be able to get passive income and resell their share in 5—7 years.
It takes around 3-6 months to obtain citizenship. Here’s how the process goes with Immigrant Invest specialists.
Preliminary Due Diligence. Before signing a contract with an investor we run a thorough check on their documents to see if the applicant is suitable for the program. The procedure takes one day. It’s executed by a Compliance Anti Money Laundering Officer and is confidential. Preliminary Due Diligence allows us to reduce the risk of rejection to 1%.
Preparation of documents. Our lawyers prepare the package of documents that are required by the program. It includes passports, birth and marriage certificates and bank statements. Immigrant Invest specialists translate the documents, certify the copies and fill out all the state forms.
Due Diligence. After the documents are sent to St Kitts and Nevis CBI unit, the department runs its investigation on the applicant.
Fulfilment of the investment condition. After the CBI unit approval, the applicant has to make their investment within 90 days.
Passport obtainment. After the investment has been made, the applicant receives their passport and naturalisation certificate within 4 weeks. The documents can be delivered by courier to any convenient address.
