Investment in Pre-approved Real Estate

The pre-approved real estate option requires applicants to purchase property. The minimum required investment under the pre-approved real estate option is US$400,000, with a further requirement to hold that property for a minimum of five years. Alternatively, applicants can invest into a share system, paying a minimum of US$200,000. In this instance, real estate must be held for a period of seven years to maintain their economic citizenship status. Additional Government fees apply to both real estate options. The real estate investment of US$400,000 may also attract two applicants at US$200,000 each plus government fees, but this can only be resold after 7 years.

A list of approved real-estate developments is published on the website of the Citizenship-by-Investment Unit of the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis.
