Citizenship Nevis

There are many reasons why St Kitts citizenship is a good option for business people. Experts recommend investing in a Nevis nationality because it brings considerable advantages at decent costs.

Asset protection was always necessary but is particularly so in our times. Our century is marked by hyperinflation, unemployment, war, and other factors that promise to bring a financial collapse in not such a distant future. Moreover, this has been increased by world crises like the Covid-19 pandemic, an event that struck the whole world and caused governments to implement draconian restrictions. How many of these restrictions were actually justified is a matter of opinion, but the bottom line is that the measures existed and, although they were softened, they still prevail. Even after the high curve of the pandemic is over and even when the virus seems to be under control, some countries still have restrictive measures when it comes to movement. For example, places like restaurants or bars must close at a given time and there are restrictions as to what activities can one do.

There's also the matter of precedent. In 2020 many countries applied strict restrictions even preventing one from leaving or entering the country, and no one can predict whether this is happening again soon.

Why get Nevis nationality

From these statements, we can conclude that we need to establish a Plan B strategy, and this includes a second place where you can live legally. There are many things that you can do to diversify your assets but Nevis citizenship, or whatever citizenship you choose, is step one. The reason is simple: physically you have to be somewhere, and you can't afford to be limited to only one government, state, set of regulations, laws, etc. The ideal strategy is the one that includes at least a couple of passports besides the original one, but we have to start somewhere, and St Kitts and Nevis citizenship is not a bad option. Next, we mention only a few of the perks that come with being a St Kitts citizen.

A second citizenship quickly and safely

You can achieve the Nevis nationality in only four to six months. The jurisdiction also offers a fast-track application option through which you can get your citizenship in less than 60 days. This is one of the fastest programs in the world and, needless to say, it's much faster than traditional citizenship options. In this case, you only need the money and an impeccable character, and you've got yourself a second citizenship. Keep in mind that a thorough due diligence process is carried out for each case.

Travel visa-free and widen your opportunities

The St Kitts nationality is a great option for you to travel visa-free to more than 150 countries in the world. This includes top cultural and business centers like the European Union countries, Ireland, The United Kingdom, the Caribbean, and the Commonwealth nations. Citizens also have the opportunity to get long-term visas to the US.

This is not a minor advantage for a business person who travels often. Forget about long processes before your business trip or before going on vacation. This citizenship opens a lot of opportunities that, in many cases, you wouldn't be able to access if it weren't for the Nevis citizenship.

Here are some of the countries that accept Nevisian citizens visa-free:

- Argentina

- The Bahamas

- Belgium

- Brazil

- Chile

- The Cook Islands

- Curaçao

- Denmark

- Estonia

- Finland

- Germany

- Iceland

- Liechtenstein

- Luxembourg

- Malta

- Mauritius

- Montenegro

- Panama

- Russian Federation

- Singapore

- Switzerland

- Taiwan

- Turkey

Advantageous tax system

If you're still wondering why get a second passport, consider your tax obligations. Avoiding tax is illegal so this is not an option. However, what many people don't know is that it's possible to design structures that will, in the end, allow you to pay less tax and thus make better use of your assets. In Saint Kitts and Nevis, for example, some taxes don't exist like wealth, income, or inheritance tax. It's worth noting that you have to know how to make use of this advantage, in other words, organize your affairs so that you can lower your tax burden legally. For this, you need a tax expert but not just any tax expert: you want someone qualified to handle international taxation. Luckily, Mundo has many experts in this sector.

Straightforwardness and simplicity

Saint Kitts and Nevis value investors and simplify things for them, so applicants don’t need to visit the country to qualify for citizenship. The most important things are the investment and the due diligence process. Remember that you have to prove that your funds come from a legal source and that your character is impeccable. This means you can't be involved, not now nor in the past, in any illegal or shady activity.

Non-refundable donation

Individuals that want to obtain St Kitts citizenship can apply with a donation to the SGF (Sustainable Growth Fund) of Saint Kitts and Nevis. The minimum investment is $150,000 for a single applicant and $195,000 for a family of four members.

Real estate investment 

Further, there’s an option to acquire St Kitts and Nevis citizenship by purchasing a property, i.e., through a real estate investment. Only government-approved projects are accepted, and the minimum is $200,000. The owner (investor) must keep this property for seven years before being able to sell it as a condition to obtain citizenship. Alternatively, you can buy a 400,000-dollar property, in which case, you can sell it after five years.

The real estate option is more complicated because it requires you to research, choose the property, and maintain it, but in the end, it's a much better investment. You can get returns from rental income or let the property gain appreciation and sell it in a few years.

Real estate investment CBI process

Stage 1: Choose your property and enter into a purchase/sale agreement. The project must be approved by the government.

Stage 2: Sign the agreement with our experts.
