Launched in 1984, the St. Kitts & Nevis citizenship by investment is technically the original program of what is now a more than US$30 billion industry across more than 30 countries. The rolling landscapes exude spectacular shades of green, the surrounding waters are a tranquil turquoise and life on St. Kitts is described as sweet and simple. Integral to the nation’s dynamic aspirations is the development currently underway on the island. This includes two new world-class championship golf courses, a 300-berth mega yacht marina, private beach clubs, exclusive hotels and resort communities, new international restaurants and other amenities.

St. Kitts and neighboring island Nevis form one country – the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. With more than a quarter of the country set aside as part of a national park, an expanding lush rainforest, UNESCO-protected colonial forts, and colourful beachside villages, it’s no wonder the island was coveted by the British and French.
The island is located in the Eastern Caribbean and enjoys direct air access from Miami, New York, London, Toronto, Atlanta and Charlotte, and other regional destinations, and also has a brand new private jet terminal.
There are some exceptional opportunities for value creation over the medium to long term at the high end of the Caribbean property market in developments such as Christophe Harbour on St. Kitts prestigious south east peninsula or even in older residential communities such as the exclusive Four Seasons in Nevis. Over time high-end vacation villas in particular have proven to be a rewarding investment. The citizenship via property investment route is a superior route for a sophisticated investor in the medium term.
