Costs of St. Kitts & Nevis Citizenship

There are two options for qualifying contribution for the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment Program:

1) Donation - Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF)

Cash donation to the Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF option), Government Escrow Account.

Single Applicant
USD 150,000
An applicant with up to 3 dependents
USD 195,000
Additional fee for any dependent
USD 25,000

2) Real Estate Investment

Investment in real estate through one of the Government approved real estate asset classes: freehold property with title deed; hotel shares; fractional ownership or land.

Minimum Investment (Must hold for 5 years)
USD 400,000
Minimum Investment (Must hold for 7 years)
USD 200,000

USD 400,000 is the minimum value of investment qualifying you and your family under the real estate option. This property can then be sold after a period of 5 years. Should the next buyer wish to obtain citizenship, they need to pay you the same USD 400,000 for the property. There is now another option where real estate at US$200,000 plus government fees can be purchased, but this can only be resold after 7 years under the same conditions. This means a clear resale market and a level of capital guarantee. However, there will be some legal costs associated with the real estate purchase ranging from 1 – 5% of the property value, dependent on the property type. You can also rent out, re-finance and receive utility bills from some asset classes.
