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 Montenegro, Turkey 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."
St Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment programme
Established in 1984, Saint Kitts’ CBI programme remains the ‘Platinum Standard’ of the industry. It is widely renowned in the industry for being one of the most efficient, transparent and reliable options for economic citizenship and was announced as the second best CBI Programme worldwide (just one point less than Dominica) according to the CBI Index 2020.
The fastest CIP worldwide, it is the only citizenship by investment nation to offer a secure, fast-track route. For a fee, the Accelerated Application Process (AAP) delivers a guaranteed 60-day result.
The programme is also family-inclusive, allowing for parents and grandparents of both the main applicant and spouse, above the age of 55 and 65, respectively, as well as siblings, having recently announced the inclusion of siblings in an application.
The fastest and most straightforward route to second citizenship in St Kitts and Nevis is the Sustainable Growth Fund which currently offers applicants a limited-time offer. Until January 15th, 2021, families of up to four who choose to become citizens only need to invest $150,000 instead of $195,000.
