Recent amendments to the St. Lucia Citizenship via Investment Programme make it the most inexpensive citizenship by investment option available anywhere.
As of December 2016, investors seeking to make a contribution to the Saint Lucia National Economic Fund can obtain second citizenship for as little as $100,000 USD. Additional fees depend on the number of family members included in an application, but this programme is very attractive to investors in 2017 because of its affordability and streamlined nature.
Investors seeking to obtain a second citizenship via the St. Lucia programme, can expect the processing of passports within as little as three months without any physical residency requirement.
Successful applicants will have the unrestricted right to live, work, travel, and study anywhere in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Additionally, this programme grants visa-free travel to one hundred and thirty-nine countries, including the Schengen Zone, UK and Hong Kong.
All nationalities are eligible to apply and, notably, the programme excludes any language or education requirements. There is no need for investors to relinquish current citizenship with this programme, as dual citizenship is permitted.
Investors interested in taking advantage of these new amendments to the St. Lucia Citizenship via Investment Programme are urged to contact Elevay for a Complimentary Consultation.
