Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis: The twin-island Federation of St Kitts and Nevis is a small nature island gem based in the Caribbean region. The country is located between Antigua and St Maarten and is known for magnificent beaches, bobbing yachts, swaying palm trees and jaw-dropping sunsets.

It is indeed an unforgettable experience for the visitors as it offers the experience of old plantation houses, a shoreline which ranges from cliffs to beaches with fine white Caribbean sand or the curious black volcanic sand, and historic towns like the capital Basseterre. St Kitts is popular for being party-centric as it has a wide selection of restaurants, bars and hotels, whereas Nevis is known to be shy as it showcases the opulence and beauty of the region.

St Kitts has been classified as an “American Oceanic Rainforest” as it owns one of the rarest kinds of forests on the planet. Known for its blue seas and fine sandy beaches, St Kitts has become a sought-after location with its verdant central mountain chain. There are many trails that wind through the lush forests under the canopy of ancient trees, full of flowers and the sounds of the wildlife that thrive in this spectacular environment – making it an outdoor adventurers’ dream.

On the other hand, Nevis, with its luxury resorts, is one of the most unspoilt and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. Vivid green vegetation set against the backdrop of blue skies, long empty beaches, and clean air, Nevis has a pace of life that encourages visitors to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around them. It’s a very special place famed for its charm and the easy-going nature of its people.

Along with this, the twin-island Federation in the Caribbean offers a high standard of living for its citizens. Sectors such as health, education, tourism, business and agriculture are flourishing. They provide basic facilities and amenities to the Kittitians and Nevisians.

Spending on infrastructure has made the country unrecognisable from only 20 years ago. There is a thriving cruise ship port complex, and new roads have been built to take pressure off traffic in Basseterre.

The Citizenship by Investment Programme of St Kitts and Nevis has been pivotal in developing sectors such as healthcare, business, and education in the nation. With the help of the tourism industry and the Citizenship by Investment Programme, the country has witnessed socio-economic development at a significant pace. The wise use of the funds generated by the CBI Programme aid the country in paving the path of development efficiently.

The CBI Programme empowers wealthy foreign investors to acquire alternative citizenship once they have contributed to the government fund. The CBI Programme has been praised for its stringent and vigorous due-diligence background checks, which are carried out by third-party firms. These agencies conduct multi-layered background checks, analysing applications, documents, character, source of income and many others. The robust background checks help maintain the integrity of the programme and also ensure national and international security.

After passing the necessary security checks and undergoing a stringent due diligence process, successful applicants gain access to a vast array of opportunities.

According to the 2021 CBI Index published by PWM Magazine of The Financial Times, St Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship by Investment Programme is the world’s best and longest-standing and enjoys over three decades of experience within the industry, culminating in its recognition as a ‘Platinum Standard’ brand.
