Saint Lucia citizenship by investment (CBI) program for foreigners: invest in real estate, the economic fund, state bonds, or enterprise. Contact us to learn more about the requirements.
St Lucia citizenship is one of the most advantageous citizenships in terms of investment-benefit ratio.
It allows you to possess two or more passports simultaneously – the country does not require you to renounce your current citizenship.
Having St Lucia citizenship, you can easily travel to many destinations around the world without a visa, including the UK, Schengen zone, South Korea, Hong Kong, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore, and more.
The citizenship grants you year-round access to a beautiful Caribbean island where you can spend your vacation.
There are 4 ways of investment to become a St Lucia citizen: contributing to the economic fund, investing in real estate, enterprise, or buying state bonds.
The St Lucia Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program is designated for those interested in acquiring citizenship of the country by investing in it. Foreigners from around the world who strive to become global citizens can apply for this program along with their family members.
Nationals of different countries ready to invest in St Lucia's economy can apply for this citizenship. People often get it if they want to renounce their previous passports or have an alternative option to travel, participate in Golden Visa programs, open foreign bank accounts, or establish business abroad.
There are four general conditions for obtaining St Lucia Citizenship by Investment:
An applicant has to buy real estate that is approved by the government.
You will have to keep the property for at least 5 years after buying it.
The investment of $100,000 is non-refundable – it is a contribution to the state National Economic Fund.
The bonds are non-interest bearing: they must be registered and held by the applicant for a period of 5 years from the date of issuance.
The enterprise you invest in must be approved by the local authorities.
Investing $1,000,000 in the enterprise is only possible if you do it with the other applicants: the minimum sum of group investment is $6,000,000.
If you invest in the enterprise alone, you must contribute at least $3,500,000.

Saint Lucia citizenship can also be obtained by your closest relatives, including your spouse, children, parents, and siblings. This program allows your future children to inherit your passport.
Be formally registered as a spouse of the applicant.
Children up to 30 y.o. that are fully maintained or substantially supported by the principal applicant.
Your kids born after you got your citizenship will inherit it automatically.
Parents can be included in the application if they are older than 55 y.o. and are financially supported by the investor.
Our goal is simple – provide successful entrepreneurs and investors with high-level services to solve their problems by reducing their taxes, getting second citizenship and investing overseas.
Being a St Lucia passport holder allows you to travel across several continents visa-free. There are 146 countries you can go to without applying for a visa, with an eVisa, or visa on arrival.
More than 110 visa-free states include, for example, Schengen states, Hong Kong, Israel, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.
If you travel to the remaining 30+ countries, you gain access there with an eVisa – an electronic version of a visa that is easy and fast to get online, or you are issued a visa on arrival.
With this citizenship, you are also eligible to get a 10-year US visa and stay there for up to 6 months per year.
Once you become a St Lucia citizen, you are exempt from capital gains, inheritance, wealth, and gifts tax. Plus, there are no withholding taxes for residents and non-residents.
The conditions for obtaining St Lucia citizenship are quite simple compared to many other countries: you are not required to pass history or language exams, sit interviews, or have at least a bachelor's degree.
If you do not want to renounce your other citizenship, you do not have to since St Lucia allows you to keep your previous citizenship. You will only have to revoke the previous passport if the other party demands it.
An investor can add up their family members to the application. It means that your spouse, kids, parents, and siblings can also become St Lucia citizens.
You only need from 4 to 6 months to get a new passport. Moreover, you do not even have to become a resident of the country first: the whole process can be done remotely. There is no need to visit the island. The passport is issued within one month after the CBI unit approves your application.
If these countries are essential for your business matters, you will not be able to visit them visa-free. If you need to go to these countries, you should apply for Dominica citizenship which grants you free access to both China and Russia.
Citizenship is only inherited by children if they are born within 5 years after the investor gets the citizenship. You will need to pay additional fees to let your kids who are born after that 5 years get the passport.
