License

Why applicants need the help of a licensed agent

By law, an investor cannot apply for citizenship by investment on their own. The applicant needs to contact a licensed agent to participate in the St Kitts and Nevis citizenship by investment program. The licensed agent is a law firm that assists applicants at every stage of obtaining citizenship.

Immigrant Invest is a licensed agent of the St Kitts and Nevis citizenship program.

Stages and terms

Step-by-step procedure of obtaining St Kitts and Nevis citizenship

The stages of obtaining a St Kitts and Nevis passport are similar in both options: a contribution to the state fund and the purchase of real estate.

A Compliance Anti Money Laundering Officer examines the investor’s documents. The procedure is confidential and takes only 1 business day. The applicant only needs to provide a passport.

Immigrant Invest is the only licensed agent in Russia with its own compliance department. Pre-screening reduces the risk of our clients’ applications being rejected to 1%.

Immigrant Invest’s lawyers prepare lists of the personal and financial documents required to participate in the citizenship program. They include passports, birth and marriage certificates and bank statements.

Our lawyers fill out all the state forms themselves and certify copies of documents: the investor only needs to sign.

We send the finished package of documents to the St. Kitts and Nevis program department. The applicant pays the Due Diligence fee and the Due Diligence begins. All family members over 16 years old must undergo a Due Diligence check.
When the department in charge of the citizenship by investment program notifies Immigrant Invest about the approval of their client’s application, the investor has to fulfill the investment condition within 90 days: contribute to the state fund or buy real estate.
Within 4 weeks after fulfilling the investment condition, a passport and a certificate of naturalization are issued. They are sent by courier to the address indicated by the investor.
