St. Kitts & Nevis
St. Kitts & Nevis - Two Islands, one Paradise

Background and Legal Considerations

Several independent nations have adopted programmes which allow the acquisition of citizenship against a direct contribution to the state as a means of development of the country. The Citizenship Programme of St. Christopher (St. Kitts) and Nevis was established in 1984, which makes this the longest established Economic Citizenship Programme. Citizenship can only be acquired through an investment in designated real estate; a limited quota of real estate available for investment has been set by the Government. Regulations regarding Economic Citizenship are contained in Section 3 (5) of the Citizenship Act, 1984. The terms and conditions governing the Citizenship-by-Investment Programme are contained in the Government's policy guidelines.


St Kitts & Nevis is an independent English speaking island state situated in the northern part of the Leeward Islands in the eastern Caribbean. The Federation is made up of two islands, St. Kitts and the smaller Nevis, which are separated by a channel two miles wide. It is a former British colony and a member of the Commonwealth of Nations (British Commonwealth) as well as the United Nations, Caricom, and other international organisations.

St. Kitts & Nevis has a pleasant climate, particularly during the cool months from December to March. Humidity is relatively low, and constant northeast trade winds keep the islands cool.

St. Kitts is 23 miles long and 5 miles across at its widest, encompassing an area of 68 square miles. Nevis, the smaller island, lies to the south and is approximately 7 miles in diameter, covering a total of 36 square miles. The two islands support a population of about 45,000, of which about 9,000 live on the island of Nevis. Like no other islands in the Caribbean except Dominica, St. Kitts & Nevis embody a kind of lush tropical paradise usually associated with the South Pacific. The atmosphere here is a blend of sunlight, sea air and abundant vegetation. At the center of St. Kitts stands the spectacular, cloud-fringed peak of Mount Liamuiga (pronounced Lee-a-mweega), a dormant volcano covered by dense tropical forest.

St. Kitts & Nevis offers good opportunities for investors and manufacturers. The workforce is well-educated, English speaking and friendly. Other advantages include tax breaks of up to 15 years, repatriation of profits and the possibility of tax-free entry of produced goods into the US market. Substantial European import benefits also apply.

The Government of St. Kitts & Nevis has introduced extensive legislation to attract financial services business to the island. Since 1984 there is also an attractive Economic Citizenship Programme in operation. However, due to a separate real estate investment requirement in addition to government fees, this programme is relatively expensive and, as a consequence, also more exclusive. However, St. Kitts & Nevis is a very attractive place to own real estate, and there are some excellent real estate developments that are approved under the citizenship programme. Furthermore, the St. Kitts & Nevis passport is very well regarded as only relatively few passports have been issued under this citizenship-by-investment programme. As a result, St. Kitts & Nevis passport holders, unlike Belize, Dominica or Grenada passport holders for example, enjoy a passport with and excellent reputation and very good visa-free travel. Therefore, depending on the applicant’s individual circumstances, the St. Kitts & Nevis citizenship-by-investment programme is a very attractive option.

Further Information

Through its Eastern Caribbean office in Dominica and a representation in Basseterre, St. Kitts, our partners assist foreign individuals in acquiring citizenship through the official Economic Citizenship Programme. We also advise corporations and private investors about all aspects of real estate in the islands and about investing and doing business in St. Kitts & Nevis and throughout the Eastern Caribbean.

Economic Citizenship Programme



An application will result in citizenship for one family (applicant, spouse and two unmarried dependant children). In addition to standard documentary requirements (passports, birth and marriage certificates, police clearance, etc.) it is necessary that the applicant makes contribution to the Government of St. Kitts & Nevis, which takes the form of a non-refundable cash payment of US$35,000 for a single applicant plus US$15,000 for each dependent. In addition, the applicant must invest in designated real estate. To qualify for citizenship of St.Kitts & Nevis, the Government requires an investment in real estate of at least US$250,000. In addition to this, there are professional and due diligence fees, which depend on the number of persons included in an application.

These requirements make the programme relatively expensive but at the same time also more exclusive. However, St. Kitts & Nevis is a very attractive place to own real estate, and there are some excellent real estate developments that are approved under the citizenship programme. Furthermore, the St. Kitts & Nevis passport is very well regarded as only relatively few passports have been issued under the citizenship-by-investment programme. As a result, St. Kitts & Nevis passport holders, unlike Belize, Dominica or Grenada passport holders for example, enjoy a passport with more visa-free travel (St. Kitts & Nevis passport holders still have visa-free access to Canada for example) and an excellent reputation. Therefore, depending on the applicant's individual circumstances, the St. Kitts & Nevis citizenship-by-investment programme is a very attractive option.


Our partners will assist you in finding suitable real estate for purchase and will prepare and lodge your application with the Government. After purchase of the real estate and approval of your citizenship application (normally 4 to 8 weeks) citizenship documents and passports are issued. As with other citizenship programmes, there is a thorough background check. However, applicants are not required to go to St. Kitts & Nevis as there is no interview required. Of course it is advisable to personally select the real estate in which you invest, however if you do not have the time to travel there the entire procedure can be completed without your physical presence being required, which is a further, considerable advantage of this programme. Citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis are allowed to hold dual citizenship, and the acquisition of citizenship is not reported to other countries.

The following documents must accompany your application. If the documents are not in English, a full translation prepared and certified by a professional translation service is required. Translations must be on the translation firm's letterhead and bear its signature and stamp. Certified copies of the documents in the original language must also be provided. We can arrange for such translations to be done by our specialised in-house Translation Services at competitive rates. You can therefore send us certified copies of the original documents, and you need not worry about the translation.

You are not liable to taxation in St. Kitts & Nevis on any income earned outside of the country.

Finally, owning real estate in St. Kitts & Nevis, two of the most attractive islands in the Caribbean, is a good investment that you can use for your vacation, as a pied-a-terre, for future retirement or to generate rental income.

Performance Guarantee

Great care has been taken to provide the best possible safeguards for persons entering the programme. Prior to taking on any mandate, a written agreement is made between the applicant and our partners defining the responsibilities of both parties.

Since the granting of citizenship is at the sole discretion of the Government of St. Kitts & Nevis, we are not able to guarantee that applications will be approved. However, no applicant, once accepted by our partners, has ever been refused - thanks to our professional assessment of each case prior to lodging any application.

Unlike in Dominica or Grenada, where our partners are officially appointed by the respective Governments, there is no official accrediting of agents under the Economic Citizenship Programme in St. Kitts & Nevis. It is therefore all the more important to deal with a professional firm with an international reputation that is experienced in handling such applications. Through our regional office in the Eastern Caribbean and our own representation in Basseterre, St. Kitts, we are the leading firm for handling Economic Citizenship applications in St. Kitts & Nevis.

Further Information

For further information on the programme and on how to apply - or to arrange a private consultation - please contact us today. Individuals as well as other law and consulting firms worldwide rely on us for professional advice and assistance in this delicate area where our expertise and experience are second to none.

Please note:

All documents offered by procuring agencies are guaranteed by same agencies to be absolutely genuine - no forgeries, no stolen or "lost" papers!

OffshoreSimple Inc is not "selling" these passports in the sense that we issue them, fill in existing blanks or print them ourselves! (This should really be a given, but we do get inquiries asking us to do just that - sorry, folks, but that's a strict no-no as far as we are concerned!)

What we do instead is to mediate between clients who are interested in obtaining a legal & official 2nd citizenship/passport and those agents & facilitators who are capable and willing to help them obtain it.

2nd Citizenship & Passports by Mail - Our Basic Program Referral Policy

Please be sure to read the following statement of referral policy before proceeding to order or inquire about a specific citizenship program!


We simply can't do 'em all ourselves!


This referral only format is even the case where one of our web pages may not yet have been updated properly, thus still stating otherwise.

Procurement agreements are with respective providing agencies only.

While OffshoreSimple Inc has taken all pains to research all programs and agencies, and while we believe every program featured on our site to be valid and bona fide and wouldn't recommend it otherwise, OffshoreSimple Inc can in no way be held liable for performance of procuring agencies. As it stands, we have always known all recommended procuring agencies to be 100% reliable and of absolute integrity in the past.

However, it is to be understood that we are merely brokering the contact, not the contract! Hence, any agreements undertaken with agencies will be at client's own responsibility. By sending us your preliminary application you unequivocally agree to these our terms.

Note that we are bound by contract not to divulge countries' names before receipt of positive proof of funds. We will blandly refuse to reply to all inquiries not complying with these terms. If interested, please drop us a line so we can discuss the modalities. Please be as specific as you can - we won't waste our time anymore on vague, non-committal inquiries of the "send more, more, more info's" ilk!
