Changes to the St Lucia Citizenship Programme

Additional amendments and enhancements have since been made to the St Lucia Citizenship-by-Investment programme. More information on the changes that came into effect in January 2023 can be found here. For full information on the programme, including requirements, benefits, and other key information, visit our St Lucia Citizenship-by-Investment page.

The St Lucia Citizenship by Investment Programme was recently amended to ensure it remains competitive within the Caribbean region.

COVID-19 Relief Bond Option

The government announced a COVID-19 Relief Bond option that is available until December 31, 2020. This qualifying option requires the purchase of non-interest bearing bonds at a value of US$250,000 for a family up to four.

  • A single applicant is required to hold the bonds for five years.
  • A married couple is required to hold the bonds for six years.
  • A family of four is required to hold the bonds for seven years. This hold period can be reduced for a family up to four down to five years if they purchase US$300,000 in bonds.

There is also a non-refundable administrative fee of US$30,000. Regular due diligence and passport fees also apply.

New Family Pricing

While the St Lucia Citizenship Programme had always been the most cost-effective for a single applicant, it was a higher-priced option for families compared to many of the other Caribbean citizenship offerings.

  • For a family of two, the contribution drops from US$165,000 down to US$140,000 resulting in a savings of US$25,000.
  • For a family of four, the savings are even greater with a reduction from US$190,000 to US$150,000.

This revised pricing aligns more closely to Antigua’s citizenship programme which is the most cost-effective for families.
