Condition of entry to popular destinations for St Kitts and Nevis citizens

Here are the conditions of entry to some of the most popular tourist destinations with a St Kitts and Nevis passport.

Schengen and the EU. Citizens of St Kitts and Nevis can travel to states of the Schengen area visa-free. That applies only to short stay visits up to 90 days every 6 months. Note that 90 days is given for all countries in total. For instance, if a traveller has already spent 30 days in Spain, they have only 60 days left to visit other Schengen countries within the same half-year period.

Aside from that, St Kitts and Nevis passport holders get to travel visa-free to the EU countries that are not a part of the Schengen area. For instance, they can stay in Romania and Bulgaria for 90 days without a visa.

The UK. The UK allows visa-free entry for citizens of St Kitts and Nevis for visits that are shorter than 6 months. After they leave the country, they can re-enter the UK no earlier than six months. Travellers should have a passport that’s valid for the whole stay.

Singapore. Holders of St Kitts and Nevis passports can visit Singapore visa-free for a maximum of 30 days. However, they will be required to obtain an SG Arrival Card. It’s an electronic landing card that you apply for and receive online.

Hong Kong. Travellers with St Kitts and Nevis passports can visit Hong Kong visa-free. This applies to short stays up to 90 days.

The USA. To visit the USA citizens of St Kitts and Nevis do need to obtain visas. However, they can apply for a 10-year multiple entry visa for both tourism and business purposes. The acquisition process takes about two weeks.

Canada. Like the USA, Canada also requires visas from St Kitts and Nevis citizens. The visitor visa is valid for up to 6 months.

More benefits provided by
a St Kitts and Nevis passport

Aside from visa-free travels to 156 countries St Kitts and Nevis citizenship has more benefits to offer.

Tax optimization. St Kitts and Nevis doesn’t tax personal income, wealth or inheritance tax. Non-residents of the country do have to pay a 15% tax on dividends, interest or royalties from a source within the state. To become a tax resident of St Kitts and Nevis, one has to spend at least 183 days a year on the islands.

Resident companies of St Kitts and Nevis pay 33% corporate tax on all profits. Non-resident businesses, on the other hand, pay the tax only for income from operations within the state. Aside from that, companies pay VAT of up to 17%.

International companies, meaning companies working with partners abroad, can be exempt from taxes for 15 years.

International business. Citizens of St Kitts and Nevis can register their company here. This might be beneficial when working with foreign partners as the payments can be made bypassing foreign exchange control regulations.

Family members can join the application. Those who obtain a St Kitts and Nevis passport via the citizenship by investment program can include their close family member in the application. Here’s who this rule implies:

  • the investor’s spouse of the opposite sex;
  • the investor’s children under 18 years old and children under 30 years old who are fully financially dependent on the investor;
  • the investor’s parents if they are over 55 years old and fully financially dependent on the investor;
  • investor’s siblings under 30 years old, if they are unmarried and don’t have children.

When family members are added to the program, the investment should increase. For instance, a married couple will have to make a non-refundable contribution of $ 175,000 instead of $ 150,000.

Citizenship is hereditary. Future children of the investor will obtain St Kitts and Nevis citizenship with all its benefits mentioned above without having to make any investments of their own.

How to obtain a St Kitts and Nevis passport

There are several ways to obtain a St Kitts and Nevis passport, including marriage to a citizen, naturalisation and joining the citizenship by investment program. The latter option is the fastest one. The program offers two ways to invest in the country’s economy:

$ 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.

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.
