St. Kitts and Nevis Pathway to Citizenship Overview

Standing as one of the economic pillars of Saint Kitts and Nevis, its Citizenship by Investment program was among the first in the world and remains, to this day, a solid choice for securing a second citizenship. The government enables foreign investors four options to become citizens, of which two are based on contributions, and Investment Visa advises venturing through the other two options, which is the purchase of Real Estate in the country.

Real Estate brings nothing but potential for the future. Besides acting as a tangible asset, which can always be used for a Plan B, or a holiday escapade, it can also be utilized as a means of getting returns, either through rentals or through the sale of the property itself.

How to get the St. Kitts and Nevis Golden Visa and become a Citizen

Saint Kitts and Nevis prides itself on pioneering investment immigration programs worldwide, launching its own as far back as 1984. Ever since, its Citizenship by Investment program has been finely tuned and constantly evolving, keeping transparency and integrity as core values. Because of this, interviews are mandatory for the process of obtaining Citizenship for each applicant over the age of 16.

Supplying documents such as a valid passport, and a clean, criminal record are only some of the many you will be expected to provide. Though extensive, the demands of the program are reasonable, and the process proves direct. The first surefire step to guarantee Citizenship is to contact Investment Visa. Our advisory team counts on more than 25 years of experience and has guided numerous investors to Citizenship in Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Family Inclusion

Regardless of the chosen option, you can bring your family. Your spouse, children under the age of 18, or up until 25 if they are studying, or without limit if the child has physical or mental disabilities, and parents of both the main applicant and spouse, if they are 65 years or older and fully supported by the main applicant.

Investment Options for the St. Kitts and Nevis Golden Visa

Despite having several options, obtaining the Saint Kitts and Nevis Golden Visa by purchasing qualifying property is the only path to guarantee both Citizenship and a return on the investment.

Real Estate

Investing in the purchase of Real Estate in Saint Kitts and Nevis is the best path to obtaining Citizenship. Considering the importance of the program to the country, the government provides two options:

Either acquiring an Approved Development Unit in the amount of USD $400,000;


Buying an Approved Private Home, for which the minimum amount may differ, from USD $400,000 if it is an existing share in a condominium,


USD $800,000 if it is a single, detached property.

Other Options

St. Kitts and Nevis has two other donation-based options, one dedicated to economic growth, and the other one to social development. Despite their philanthropic nature, these, considering due diligence and government fees, end up being more expensive overall, and do not represent any opportunity to obtain an eventual return on the investment.


The Real Estate market is managed by the government and not all available properties qualify for the Citizenship by Investment program. Investment Visa’s advisory team knows how to navigate the complexities of this mechanism and is ready to share this with you. Find below a general step-by-step guide on what to expect from the process.
