Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF) Contribution

The Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF) is the investment channel of the St Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship by Investment Programme.

Through the SGF, an applicant’s contribution is made directly to a government-held fund, with the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) being able to check receipt immediately and speed up the application process. The SGF represents the ongoing advancement of St Kitts and Nevis to realise its potential as a prosperous small-island nation with a growing economy. The St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme creates opportunities for investors and the local community to drive economic growth and build a sustainable future.

Real Estate Investment
There are two routes available for applicants seeking to qualify for citizenship by investing in real estate: by investing in a pre-approved real estate development or, for a limited time only, through the purchase of qualifying private residential property.

Real Estate Developments

Applicants may qualify for citizenship through an investment in a pre-approved real estate project, which may include hotel shares, villas, and condominium units. The minimum real estate investment required by law is US$200,000 (resalable after 7 years) or US$400,000 (resalable after 5 years) for each main applicant.
Private Home Sales
The sale of qualifying private homes under the Citizenship by Investment Programme will be allowed for a limited period of two years, starting November 1st 2020 and ending November 1st 2022. All homes having an appraised value of more than USD 400,000 and that meet the other criteria may qualify for sale under this option.
Alternative Investment Option

The Alternative Investment Option (AIO) is the newest form of investment under the Citizenship by Investment Programme. It facilitates investment in qualified infrastructural and other projects which are developed or will be developed by Private Enterprise Developers (PEDs) and Public Good Project Developers (PGPDs).
