The Caribbean paradise island nation of St Kitts and Nevis introduced the first citizenship by investment programme, and it’s still one of the most popular choices to get a second passport.
Holders of the Kittian passport can enter visa-free in 153 countries, including the EU Schengen zone, the UK, Russia, the Caribbean nations and most of the Commonwealth states. Long term visas for the USA are also available. The citizens of St Kitts and Nevis do not pay taxes on their private earnings, inheritance or wealth. You can become a passport holder of St Kitts even without visiting the country in three months.
You can become a citizen of St Kitts and Nevis under two investment options:
1. Contribute to the state’s Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF). The minimum amount of investment is 150,000 USD in the case of a single investor.
2. Invest in real estate; the minimum qualifying amount is 200,000 USD.
According to our cost/benefit analysis, St Kitts’ citizenship by investment programme provides the freedom of travel and the low or no taxation for its new citizens, who arrived from all over the world.
Interestingly, one of the most frequent question form applicants for the second passport programs is that whether a Kittian passport allows them to visit the UK? The answer is a clear yes, but the tiny paradise island nation’s travel document is even more useful than that. Among the Member States of Organisation of the East Caribbean States (OECS), St Kitts and Nevis has the strongest passport, according to the data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
