The St. Kitts program is a pioneer of the investment citizenship industry and the Caribbean’s most iconic program for many years. This CIP survived turbulence during the COVID period, and continues to work. Investors may apply to the famous program “Citizenship of St. Kitts and Nevis by Investments” not only on the basis of non-refundable investment in a state fund or infrastructure, but also for investment in local real estate.
Saint Kitts and Nevis was the first country to introduce a Citizenship by Investment Program in 1984, facilitating the second citizenship opportunities for individuals from around the world. Today, a St. Kitts and Nevis passport is considered one of the top 25 passports in the world, delivering freedom of travel.
Citizenship of St. Kitts and Nevis gives the opportunity for a visa-free travel to more than 130 countries, including the UK and the Schengen area. Those pursuing the Citizenship by Investment Program in St. Kitts and Nevis are also eligible to apply for a 10-year visa for the US, facilitating business immigration.
Real estate investment of USD 200,000 (minimum) plus government fees. Here investor may choose from the list of authorized projects. One of the most famous examples of real estate for this option – first Park Hyatt hotel in the Caribbean.
The 126-room, ultra luxe Park Hyatt St. Kitts 5 * (Banana Bay, Christophe Harbour) was built with support from the local government via CIP and debuted in November 2017. The original and sustainable design concept of Park Hyatt taps into the rich historic roots of St. Kitts.
According to CNN, this hotel is named as the best hotel of 2017 in the Caribbean. It is allowed to resale a share in Park Hyatt St. Kitts (USD 220,000) hotel to the new main applicants after the must hold period (7 years) is over. So even now investors may buy a share and obtain citizenship of St. Kitts.
The construction of hotels set the tone for other infrastructure on the island. A special terminal for private flights, YU Lounge, was built at Robert Bradshaw International Airport.
So, what could that be? For example, one of the 47 private turnkey Ocean Grove villas are being built in Christophe Harbor on St. Kitts Island. Each residence is 151 square meters of living space and 2 bedrooms, fully decorated and furnished in accordance with the selected design project. Ownership from USD 1,375,000.
