ST. KITTS AND NEVIS – Citizenship by Investment Program

The St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Program, also known as Economic Citizenship, was established in 1984, making it the longest-established program of this kind in the world. Foreign nationals can obtain St. Kitts and Nevis Economic Citizenship through the purchase of real estate on an approved development or investment in a pre-approved real estate project on either St Kitts or Nevis.


There are two routes available for applicants seeking to qualify for citizenship by investing in real estate in St. Kitts and Nevis residency requirements: by investing in a pre-approved real estate development or, for a limited time only, through the purchase of qualifying private residential property.


Applicants may qualify for citizenship through an investment in a pre-approved real estate project, which may include hotel shares, villas, and condominium units. The minimum real estate investment required by law is US$200,000 (resalable after 7 years) or US$400,000 (resalable after 5 years) for each main applicant.

We offer a wide range of properties for sale on St Kitts and Nevis that meet the Citizenship by Investment requirements and Saint Kitts and Nevis immigration, including both new developments and private homes for sale. Your choices range from:

  • Luxury Villas
  • Beachfront Condominiums
  • Land for sale
  • Marina Slips
  • Fractional ownership programs
  • New Resort Developments
  • Commercial Developments


Requirements – to qualify for citizenship by investment in Saint Kitts and Nevis under the real estate option, the government requires applicants to make an investment in designated, officially approved real estate with a value of at least US$ 400,000 plus the payment of government fees and other fees and taxes. As the application procedure for st kitts citizenship in real states, under this option involves the purchase of real estate, this can lengthen the processing time depending on the chosen property. Real estate can be re-sold 5 years after the purchase and may not qualify the next buyer for citizenship. A list of approved real-estate developments is published under Approved Real Estate

For more information regarding the application process, please visit the official website of the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Unit.
