Obtaining a St Kitts and Nevis Passport

Foreign nationals interested in gaining the benefits of a St Kitts and Nevis passport are encouraged to explore the option of citizenship by investment (CBI).

St Kitts and Nevis passport by investment

The St Kitts and Nevis CBI program gives potential investors three investment routes to choose from: 

  • The Sustainable Island State Contribution (SISC), a government fund to which the minimum contribution is $250,000 
  • Real estate investment shares of at least $400,000, purchase of a condo worth $400,000, or purchasing a private property worth $800,000 or more 
  • The Public Benefit Option (PBO), a minimum $250,000 investment in a project for the public benefit that has been approved by the government

Additional St Kitts and Nevis Passport Benefits

The travel benefits of the St Kitts and Nevis passport are undeniable and significant, as we have shown above. However, there are other advantages of owning this passport that make the passport by investment route even more appealing. They include: 

Asset diversification

The CBI program gives you the opportunity to diversify your asset portfolio into the St Kitts and Nevis real estate market and/or the flourishing tourism industry. Additionally, as a citizen, you also have the right to invest in or create new businesses.

Tax breaks

St Kitts and Nevis is a tax haven. Personal income tax was abolished in 1980, so neither locally earned nor foreign income is taxed, regardless of whether you are a tax resident. Furthermore, there is no capital gains tax or inheritance tax.

Great place to call home

Whether you are looking for a stable Plan B for yourself and your family, or simply planning to retire to somewhere warm and peaceful, St Kitts and Nevis checks all the boxes. A bonus is the ability to live in any of the member states of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), which include Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Lucia, Montserrat, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
