Citizenship-By-Investment Programs offer investors the opportunity to legally acquire a new nationality quickly and simply through investment. Economic citizenship programs were started by governments to attract foreign investment and stimulate economic growth and development. Citizenship through investment programs allow the governments of certain countries to grant citizenship in return for major contributions to society, culture, the economy, and other interests of the State. The U.S., Canada, Belgium, Australia, Singapore, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, St. Kitts and Nevis, and other countries offer citizenship-by-investment programs.
In the U.S., the EB-5 investor visa program provides foreign investors the opportunity to acquire citizenship through investment (please see my blog on EB-5 visas for more details). However, if you are a US investor or foreign investor seeking investment opportunities outside of the U.S., one of the most attractive programs is the Citizenship-By-Investment Program of St. Kitts and Nevis. To qualify for citizenship or dual citizenship in St. Kitts and Nevis, the applicant must make either an investment of at least US$ 400,000 in one of the approved real-estate developments in addition to paying government fees, other fees and taxes, or alternatively making a charitable contribution to the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation starting from US$ 250,000 (for a single applicant) and your charitable contribution includes all government fees.
St. Kitts and Nevis is located approximately 1242 miles south of Miami, Florida. The country has a pleasant climate with low humidity and constant north east trade winds to keep the islands cool. In addition to the excellent climate and stunning island vistas, St. Kitts and Nevis offers good opportunities for investors. The workforce is well-educated, English-speaking, and friendly. The government grants tax breaks, guaranteed repatriation of profits and concessions on import duties. There are no income or capital gains taxes, no net wealth taxes, and no inheritance or gift taxes in St. Kitts & Nevis. These benefits to citizenship make St. Kitts and Nevis extremely attractive for U.S. and foreign investors.
