There are two options of qualifying contribution for the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment Program:
A) Cash donation to the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF option), Government Escrow Account.
B) Investment in real estate through one of the Government approved real estate asset classes: freehold property with title deed; hotel shares; fractional ownership or land.
USD 400,000 is the minimum value of investment qualifying you and your family under the real estate option. This property can then be sold after a period of 5 years. Should the next buyer wish to obtain citizenship, they need to pay you the same USD 400,000 for the property.
This means a clear resale market and a level of capital guarantee. However, there will be some legal costs associated with the real estate purchase ranging from 1 – 5% of the property value, dependent on the property type. You can also rent out, re-finance and receive utility bills from some asset classes.
