Last year, Foreign Minister of St Kitts and Nevis Mark Brantley highlighted the continuing expanding international relation achievements: “We have added 26 new nations with a full visa waiver and two with partial visa waivers in the last 5 years. We have also broadened our diplomatic footprint through formal diplomatic relations with 37 new nations.”

Though one of the smallest nations in the Western Hemisphere, St Kitts & Nevis’ reach & influence continues to develop globally.

The initiative provides wealthy individuals and their families to acquire St Kitts and Nevis’ citizenship once they invest in the Sustainable Growth Fund. The fund is designed to aid national development schemes across the islands in areas such as healthcare, education, tourism, & more. In exchange, the applicant receives citizenship and the right to live, work, and study in the nation, with visa-free access to nearly 160 destinations worldwide.

Assuring that a nation’s passport remains strong is vital to offering an attractive CBI Programme. Business-minded individuals want to be able to obtain global markets to keep business competitive. St Kitts & Nevis’ passport ranks 26th globally, one of the strongest within the region, surpassing many larger and more developed countries.
