St. Kitts & Nevis Citizenship by Investment
The Platinum Standard of Citizenship Investment
Come to Saint Kitts and follow your heart
Saint Kitts and Nevis is a small, independent island nation in the Caribbean. The country is part of the Commonwealth and as such recognizes Queen Elizabeth as head of state. The country is the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere and is a member of a larger regional grouping, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), which forms a common currency and trading group.
Best known for its luxury hotels and beaches, the island is also home to the world's first Citizenship By Investment (CBI) program, which was developed in 1984. Currently, the program is billed as the platinum standard in the industry and has been considered the most successful and trusted CBI program in the world.
