Saint Kitts and Nevis is a country in the Caribbean with a very promising economy and a pleasant climate. Unfortunately, recently nature has tested this country’s strength: hurricanes brought a great deal of woe for the country’s nature, population, and economic trajectory.
Though the economy of Saint Kitts and Nevis has proudly withstood this ordeal, the country now requires fresh injections of financing. That is why its government has established the Hurricane Relief Fund (HRF), a special fund to raise money for rebuilding after the hurricane.
Donate funds in exchange for citizenship
Foreign investors, who decide to help Saint Kitts and Nevis recover after the disaster, can receive citizenship in the country under very favorable terms. They also have the right to include their dependent family members in their application.
- The financial conditions (i.e. the amount that must be contributed to the HRF) are as follows:
- for one applicant — $150,000
- for the main applicant and three members of his/her family — $150,000
- Thus, citizenship of Saint Kitts and Nevis is available also to the spouse, children, and parents of the applicant. It is hard to think of a time when the terms for receiving citizenship were more convenient and less bothersome in all respects.
How long will the HRF be valid?
The funds entered into the Hurricane Relief Fund are planned to be used completely for rebuilding the country after the hurricane and will not be spent for other purposes. To accelerate the flow of investment as much as possible, the government has set a time limit on participating in the new citizenship program.
Investors can submit their applications to participate in the NRF until March 30, 2018. Thus, for the next six months you can become a citizen of Saint Kitts and Nevis under especially advantageous, simplified rules, and at the same time you can do a good deed and make a contribution to the rebuilding of this afflicted region.
