Why Consider the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship Programme?

The beautiful, verdant two-island state of St Kitts and Nevis is located in the eastern Caribbean, to the west of Antigua and the south of Anguilla.

A modern nation, rich in history

Formerly a British colony, St Kitts and Nevis gained its independence in 1983, but has chosen to maintain links with its colonial past by keeping Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. The islands cover 261 sq. km, and the population of just over 54,000 enjoys a high standard of living in a federal parliamentary democracy.

Tourism is the nation's economic mainstay, attracting more than 600,000 visitors every year and contributing to most of the US$ 1.5 billion annual income.

St Kitts and Nevis is a signatory to the Double Taxation Relief (CARICOM) Treaty 1994 and has implemented measures to ensure compliance with the US FATCA regime.

The government offers an accelerated St Kitts and Nevis citizenship application process, which reduces the processing period to 60 days or less – making it the fastest programme in the Caribbean.
