Costs of St. Kitts & Nevis Citizenship

There are two options for qualifying contribution for the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment Program:

1) Donation - Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF)

Donation to the Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF option), Government Escrow Account.

Single Applicant
USD 150,000
An applicant with up to 3 dependents
USD 195,000
Dependent children & parents*
USD 10,000
Sibling of the main applicant or spouse**
USD 20,000

*Dependent children not older than 30 and dependent parents aged 55 and above.

**Dependent siblings not older than 30.

2) Real Estate Investment

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. There is now another option where real estate at USD 200,000 plus government fees can be purchased, but this can only be resold after 7 years under the same conditions.
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.

Minimum Investment (Must hold for 5 years)

3) Alternative Investment Option

The Alternative Investment Option (AIO) is a third form of investment under the Citizenship by Investment Program. The investment is made into projects that fulfill government requirements but are not on the Government infrastructure list. There are two investment categories:

a) A Public Good Project Developer (PGPD), where the State owns the asset at the end of an agreement. These projects are fully funded by the PGPD and locked in “upfront.”

Minimum Investment
USD 175,000

b) A Private Enterprise Developer (PED), where the built or funded asset is privately owned.

Minimum Investment
USD 200,000

There are compulsory background checks payable to the Government preferred due diligence agency that will use Interpol, World-Check and other Government agencies to screen applicants based on their application.

Main applicant
