The St Lucia Citizenship by Investment Programme, launched in 2015, is the newest addition to the Caribbean Investment Immigration landscape. The St Lucia Citizenship by investment programme provides benefits for those individuals and investors interested in obtaining a second passport at an affordable cost and in a reasonable time frame.
Why St Lucia?
Located in the Eastern Caribbean and washed by the Caribbean Sea, Saint Lucia is known for its beautiful wooded mountains and its 2 iconic tapered mountains, the Pitons, on the west coast.
On the shores of St.Lucia, one can find volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts and fishing villages. Whilst inland, one can find trails in the rainforest that lead to waterfalls; like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff and into a garden.
Why should you get a Citizenship in St Lucia?
In order to qualify for this program, individuals are required to make an economic contribution towards the country, and in exchange, the applicants and their families are granted citizenship. Citizenship is only granted after passing a strict due diligence process.
The St Lucia passport allows its holders to travel to around 140 countries visa-free, including the Schengen Area and the UK.
How can you gain Citizenship through Citizenship by Investment in St Lucia?
Citizenship in St Lucia is granted to families and individuals who make an investment in the country, which can take up different forms:
- A Non-refundable contribution of USD100,000 to the Economic Diversification Fund for a single applicant and any other applicable fees
- A minimum investment of USD300,000 in Government Approved Real Estate projects
- Investment in Government Bonds for the amount of USD500,000 or USD250,000 in COVID19 Relief Bonds for a family up to 5 applicants, valid until the 31st of December 2020
The Government Bonds will not bear any interest to the holder and Government fees apply.
The Real Estate investment and Government Bonds must be held and maintained for a minimum of 5 years after citizenship is granted. After 5 years, applicants can choose to sell it.
Beside the above financial investment requirements, applicants need to undergo a rigorous due diligence process and are subject to background checks.

We chose Malta as our new permanent home and CSB Group to help us through the residency process. They went way beyond our expectations treating our application as if it were their own. Their service was nothing short of stellar from understanding our needs preparation of the required documentation, and follow-up phase during a period with the sharpest movement restrictions. Malta deserves a place on every investor’s radar, mostly because of the surprising efficiency permeating the place, efficiency which starts with CSB.
