DOWNLOAD FACTSHEET

Saint Lucia established its citizenship-by-investment programme in 2015. The laws regarding the programme were passed by the parliament under the Citizenship by Investment Act no. 14 of 2015 and regulated under the Citizenship by Investment Saint Lucia Regulations S.I. 89 of 2015.


Following submission of all pertinent documentation, applicants can acquire St Lucian citizenship within as little as 3 to 4 months. The process is simple and demands only a modicum of input and time from the applicant. The St Lucian passport offers visa-free access to 132 territories, such as the Schengen states, the UK, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

The St Lucia Citizenship by Investment Programme is the latest citizenship programme to be created in the Caribbean and follows the same strict standards of due diligence as the other pillar programmes.
