WHY SAINT LUCIA?

St. Lucia is located in the eastern Caribbean Sea, south of Martinique and northwest of Barbados. An island made of volcanic lava that is primarily covered in rainforest is known for its twin peaks, known as the Pitons, and its enchanted beaches. St. Lucia has great air connections to Europe and North America and is a member of the Commonwealth and CARICOM.

One of the Windward Islands, with Mount Gimie at 950 meters above sea level as its highest point, is more mountainous than most Caribbean islands. The island is well-known as a travel destination because of its stunning natural surroundings, which include a rain forest, national parks, botanical gardens, a world heritage site, beautiful Caribbean beaches, and even a drive-in volcano. Particularly in its worldwide banking and tourist industries, the island nation draws in business and investment from elsewhere. St. Lucia's primary source of employment, foreign exchange profits, and revenue is tourism, which accounts for 65% of all jobs, income

SAINT LUCIA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAM CONDITIONS

Since 2015, the Saint Lucian Citizenship by Investment program has been running. The Citizenship by Investment Act regulates the policies and procedures.

Saint Lucia citizenship is available for an investment of $100,000 or more. Candidates have a choice between three main options:

  1. Payment made to a government fund.
  2. Payment made to a government.
  3. Government bond purchases.

Citizenship is granted through a streamlined process to investors. They are not required to submit a residency application, live in the nation, or pass a language exam. Couples, kids, parents, and siblings also become citizens together with the investor.

REQUIREMENTS/ INVESTMENT OPTIONS

In order to qualify for citizenship for the applicant and his or her family under the St. Lucia Citizenship-by-Investment Program, the applicant must spend a sizeable sum of money in the nation.

The primary applicant must be over 18 years old, satisfy the due diligence requirements, and choose one of the following choices in order to be eligible for citizenship:

  • Purchasing government bonds without income starting at USD 250,000.
  • Make a qualifying real estate purchase in a project that the government has authorized for at least USD $300,000.
  • An investment of at least US$3.5 million in an authorized enterprise initiative, along with the establishment of at least three permanent jobs.
  • A non-refundable contribution to the National Economic Fund beginning at $100,000 USD.

 

Donation / contribution to the government fund

The National Economic Fund (NEF) is a special fund created in accordance with Section 33 of the Citizenship by Investment Act with the single objective of collecting donations for financing government sponsors.

Children under the age of 21 or adult children between the ages of 21 and 30 who are completely supported by the applicant may be included as the main applicant. Additionally, parents or grandparents who are over 55 and residing with and being supported in full by the primary applicant may be included.
