Citizenship of Saint Lucia: fifth Caribbean country signs memorandum

Citizenship of Saint Lucia

On June 3, 2024, the Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, Philip J. Pierre, issued a statement announcing that state’s accession to the other Caribbean CIP Founders’ Memorandum (MoA). A key fact for the entire industry is the change in the cost of participation in citizenship by investment programs. Now the minimum donation investment in the Saint Lucia Citizenship program today is USD 100,000. Whereas, according to the Memorandum, none of the Caribbean CIP countries will offer to applicants an investment lower than USD 200,000.

This Prime Minister’s statement was released shortly after the Caribbean Investment Summit, CIS24, which took place in Grenada in this May. During event the Head of CIU Mc Claude Emmanuel told attendees that PM Pierre intended to sign the MoA. And know we have the full statement including some special points:

  • An annual quota
    A net-worth for applicants
  • Escrow accounts to be held in Saint Lucia or in the individual islands
  • A requirement that only licensed promoters will be allowed to submit applicants to local authorized agents and these promoters will have to submit a due diligence report on each applicant.

When does it start? Lots of unanswered questions

According to the Memorandum, the new conditions will come into force on July 1, 2024. However, changing the entire procedure in such a time frame is not easy. Moreover, the Prime Minister of Saint Lucia did not indicate a specific effective date for all new requirements in his statement. We can only wait for additional clarifications on the document.  For example, what quota will be imposed on applicants for citizenship of Saint Lucia? How will the investment requirements change if the application is submitted for a family? Will duties be changed?
