For the fifth consecutive year, St Kitts and Nevis has topped rankings for offering the strongest passport amongst all Caribbean nations that offer Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programmes.

According to data from the International Air Transport Association, holders of the St Kitts and Nevis passport can travel to 157 countries. And despite the pandemic, citizens of the dual-island nation can travel to more countries than last year.

Boasting the longest-running CBI Programme worldwide, launched in 1984, St Kitts and Nevis also outranked other countries that offer the programme, including MontenegroTurkey and Vanuatu. Globally, St Kitts and Nevis was classified as the world's 24th strongest passport, surpassing larger and more developed nations.

"We are proud to hold the position of the strongest citizenship by investment passport in the Caribbean for the fifth consecutive year," says Les Khan, CEO of St Kitts and Nevis' Citizenship by Investment Unit.

"It once again underlines the strong offering of the St Kitts and Nevis passport and Citizen By Investment programme, as well as recognising our ability to be agile and to adapt and innovate. This year, for example, introducing new alternative investment options, digitalising applications during the COVID-19 pandemic, and introducing a limited time offer, whilst continuing to apply the highest standards of due diligence."
