Saint Kitts & Nevis established its citizenship by investment programme in 1984. It was the first citizenship-by investment programme to be created and is the longest-running programme.
Following submission of all pertinent documentation, applicants can acquire Kittitian citizenship within as little as 2 months under the Accelerated Application Process option. The process is the fastest in the industry and requires the applicant to pay an additional sum. The Kittitian passport offers visa-free access to 141 territories, such as the Schengen states, the UK, Russia, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
The SKNCIP is similar to the Antigua and Barbuda CIP in terms of cost, quality and processing time. Following several reforms since its inception in 1984, the program is efficient and transparent, and well-suited to those seeking a great citizenship at a relatively low cost and without a long wait. Uniquely among Caribbean programs, the SKNCIP offers a fast-track process for an additional fee.
