The St. Lucia Citizenship by Investment program was introduced by the government on January 1, 2016. Applicants can apply for the St. Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program through three main investment avenues: charitable donations, real estate investments, and government bond investments. Successful applicants will receive a Saint Lucia passport, which will allow them to travel visa-free to more than 157 countries worldwide.
ST. LUCIA CITIZENSHIP BY DONATION
The most cost-effective way to obtain St. Lucia citizenship is through a donation to the National Economic Fund. The minimum investment required is $100,000 for a single applicant, $165,000 for a couple, and $190,000 for a family of four. There are also additional verification and processing fees based on the applicant’s age and family size.
ST LUCIA CITIZENSHIP THROUGH REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT.
For the real estate route, applicants must invest in a government-approved real estate project for at least $300,000, plus fees. The investment must be held for at least five years, after which it can be liquidated.
ST. LUCIA COVID-19 RELIEF BOND.
A temporary bond was introduced in May 2020 for single applicants to deposit a minimum of $250,000 in a refundable state bond, or $300,000 for a family application. The bond has a minimum holding period of five years, after which the principal can be returned to the investor at 0% interest. This offering is limited in time and expires in December 2022.
REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES
Residency in Saint Lucia is not required. Applications for the St. Lucia Citizenship Investment Program take an average of 3-4 months to process and can be submitted remotely. Dependent children, siblings and parents may be included in a family application. In all cases, there are additional fees for government agencies, professionals, and due diligence.
Important Note: Only certain international agents are authorized by the CIP to promote the St. Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program. Resungamedipack (License No. PM43LV300118) is approved by the Government of St. Lucia to promote the program.
ST LUCIA PASSPORT INVESTMENT REPORT.
Once investors are granted citizenship of St. Lucia, they are issued a St. Lucia passport. According to Resungamedipack’s Unique Passport Investment Report, St. Lucian passport holders enjoy visa-free access to 157 countries and territories worldwide. This is equivalent to more than one-third of the world’s GDP and includes access to the EU Schengen area, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore and other countries.
