Citizenship by Investment

Saint Kitts and Nevis Intro Image Citizenship

A little about Saint Kitts and Nevis

In existence since 1984, the SKN Citizenship by Investment Program was the original such program in the Caribbean. Following several reforms, the current iteration is considered the most successful of its kind. The official language of this tropical island’s 70,000 inhabitants is English.

Citizenship Procedure

All applicants must be in good standing and have a clean criminal record. EP Capital collects the necessary documentation from the client, compiles the application and submits it to the Citizenship by Investment Unit. Applications are generally processed in 5-8 months and, once approved, the applicant receives a letter of Approval in Principle.

 

The client then proceeds to finalize the requisite investment or contribution, upon which an official citizenship certificate and passport are issued. Kittitian citizenship can then be passed on to descendants in perpetuity.
