St Kitts & Nevis Prime Minister Timothy Harris has announced the launch of a successor fund – The Sustainable Growth Fund – to replace the Hurricane Relief Fund, in addition to a considerable reduction in the real estate investment requirement.

“The Sustainable Growth Fund for a single applicant will require a contribution of US$150,000, inclusive of Government fees. The contribution for a family of up to four will be US$195,000. We think this is attractive and sustainable,” said Harris.

Speaking of the revised real estate investment requirements, Harris stated that “In order to attract luxury resort developments, a US$400,000 investment may attract two applicants at US$200,000 each plus government fees but this can only be resold after 7 years.”

The new investment minimums for the St Kitts & Nevis citizenship by investment program (CIP) are now:

Government Donation
Minimum US$ 150,000 plus fees

Real Estate Shared Ownership
Minimum US$ 200,000 plus fees
Resale permitted after 7 years

Real Estate Whole Ownership
Minimum US$ 400,000 plus fees
Resale permitted after 5 years
