An Eastern Caribbean country that remains part of the British Commonwealth, St Lucia is an island of breathtaking beautiful landscapes and beaches. The country’s citizenship by investment program was launched in 2015 and has become a popular option for immigrant investors since. Applicants can obtain lifetime citizenship by making a donation of minimum $100,000 to the Government’s National Economic Fund (NEF), or by way of real estate investment at a minimum $300,000 in a Government approved real estate project. A major attraction of St Lucia is its international airport that has regular flights to and from the US, UK, and Canada.

An applicant may qualify for citizenship through a minimum investment of $300,000 in a Government approved real estate project, irrespective of the number of dependents included in the application. Property acquired under this option may also be resold after 5 years following the grant of citizenship to the applicant.
