St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment
Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Saint Kitts and Nevis has always been one of the most attractive destinations in the world.

The program allows applicants from around the world to invest in real estate or contribute to the Sustainable Growth Fund in exchange for the opportunity to become a citizen of the island nation and enjoy all the benefits of its passport holders.
