The Citizenship by Investment Program of St. Kitts & Nevis was established in 1984 and is the longest-standing and most respected citizenship-by-investment initiative in the world. Since its conception, the government has maintained high standards and has avoided scandals that have embroiled other, now defunct, citizenship programs around the globe.

ABOUT ST. KITTS AND NEVIS
The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is the smallest sovereign state in the Americas. Located in the Leeward Islands of the West Indies, the federation unites the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis, although both islands maintain certain independent regulation. The English-speaking islands remain underdeveloped by Caribbean standards, but tourism, which is the principal economy of the islands, has been growing steadily, bringing with it new hotel and resort developments. Both islands have international airports and have ferry lines that allow for easy transportation to the islands, as well as between them. They are still very connected with nature, as evidenced by St. Kitts' vervet monkey population (est. 53,000) slightly exceeding that of humans (est. 51,000).
St. Kitts and Nevis is a full and participating member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the Commonwealth of Nations.
The island of St. Kitts is experiencing quicker growth and enjoys more tourism infrastructure than Nevis. Approved projects, which include exotic wood cottages on the beach, restored sugar plantations with traditional plantation-style homes, modern condominiums, marinas and golf courses are now dotting the prime bays and beaches. Also, there are various ownership options at a mass-market beach resort with casino.
Nevis is more laid-back, less populated and is the smaller of the two islands, so it is no surprise that development on Nevis is much less evident. Although Nevis supports one of the few true five-star resorts in the Caribbean and a spectacular golf course, the island has retained a simple elegance. Secluded development and old plantations offer the same real estate options as St. Kitts, but on a more sublime level.
