60-Day Accelerated Pass

The Accelerated Application Process (AAP), approved by the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis in October 2016, allows applications for the Citizenship by Investment Programme to be accelerated to a 60 day processing period.

Applicants applying to the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme and utilising the AAP will still be required to meet all mandatory criteria and submit the necessary supporting documents to apply for citizenship by investment.

Applications will be accelerated by the Citizenship by Investment Unit, due diligence providers and the St. Kitts and Nevis Passport Office. In addition, this process also includes the application and processing of the St Christopher (St. Kitts) and Nevis passport.

Applying using the AAP can see an application completed within 60 days with some applications completed in as early as 45 days.
