Popular travel destinations with a St Lucia passport
A St Lucia passport simplifies holiday travel and business trips to the Schengen area, UK and Asian countries.
Schengen Area. St Lucia citizens can spend 90 days out of any 180-day period in the Schengen countries. The term is the same as for a Schengen visa, but St Lucia citizenship is obtained for life. The passport is first issued for a 5-year period, and then for 10-year periods. The procedure for replacing it is easier than applying for a Schengen visa.
United Kingdom. St Lucia is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, which means its citizens can visit the UK and stay there for up to 180 days. On leaving the UK, they can immediately re-enter and start a new 180-day period.
Asia. St Lucia passport holders can visit Hong Kong and Singapore, the main centers of business and cultural life in Asia, visa-free. They can stay for 30 days in Singapore and 90 days in Hong Kong.
St Lucia citizens also receive other benefits. They can apply for a 10-year B2 visa to the United States at any American consulate. They are also eligible for benefits at UK universities and tax incentives. In addition, St Lucia citizens can open accounts at international, including European, banks. At the same time, the cost of a St Lucia passport is lower and the processing time is shorter compared to those for other Caribbean passports by investment.
St Lucia has lowered the cost of participating in the citizenship program for investors who make a donation to the National Economic Fund and whose families are included in the citizenship application. The change in the amount of the contribution required depends on the composition of the family: for example, a family of 3-4 people now contributes $150,000, rather than $190,000.
The minimum investment in bonds for obtaining a St Lucia passport has been halved to $250,000 from $500,000. The offer is valid until the end of 2021.
The cost of participation in the St. Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program depends on the specific situation of the applicant: the composition of the family and the investment option chosen.
