Commonwealth Passport - St.Kitts & Nevis Citizenship

The Citizenship Investment Program of St.Kitts and Nevis was established in 1984, setting thereby precedence for similar citizenship programs by investment in other countries. The St.Kitts and Nevis Citizenship program is based on the statute, which means that the granted citizenship may not be revoked no matter what changes may occur in the governmental executives or policy. Regulations regarding citizenship-by-investment are included in Part II, Section 3 (5) of the Citizenship Act, 1984.

The St.Kitts and Nevis passport issued to adults is valid for 10 years and once it expires it can be renewed at any St Kitts and Nevis Consulate.
