Saint Kitts and Nevis is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The citizenship by investment program is one of the oldest existing programs, having been established in 1984. It’s known for its cloud-shrouded mountains and pristine, white beaches. It also had many sugar plantations before, but those are now popular spots for tourism.
The larger of the two islands, Saint Kitts, is dominated by the dormant Mount Liamuiga Volcano, home to a crater lake, green vervet monkeys, and rainforests. Popular activities to be enjoyed here are hiking on these rainforest trails and wildlife safaris.
The St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Program is the oldest of its kind in the world. Established in 1984 it grants citizenship and a passport through donation or real estate investment to qualified applicants.
