Citizenship by Investment

St.Kitts Public Benefit Option – MSR Media

As of late July 2023, The Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme in St Kitts and Nevis has undergone recent revisions to foster advantages for local enterprises, entrepreneurs, and the diaspora. A novel addition, the Public Benefit Option (PBO), now enriches the CBI for investors.

Through the Public Benefit Option, the Cabinet possesses the authority to allocate public benefit units to an Approved Public Benefactor, for subsequent sale on the international market at a minimum rate of  USD 250,000 per unit. Those acquiring these units can subsequently seek citizenship within St Kitts and Nevis through the CBI Unit.
