BASSETERRE, St Kitts – St Kitts and Nevis established new diplomatic relations and visa waiver agreements that will permit visa-free access and help improve the power of its passport.
The Federation and the Kingdom of Eswatini signed a visa waiver agreement. Additionally, St Kitts and Nevis established diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Jordan.
More recently the Federation established a visa waiver with the Republic of North Macedonia. Dr Kevin M. Isaacs, the dual island nation’s High Commissioner met with ambassador of the Republic of North Macedonia to the United Kingdom Alexsandra Miovska to sign the agreement in London on December 15.
St Kitts and Nevis has for approximately 40 years, operated its Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme, considered a highly efficient, cost-effective and lawful path to obtain second citizenship.
Recent waiver agreements and visa-free access add to the rewards of the CBI programme full visa waiver and broadened diplomatic footprint to travel to nearly 160 countries and territories with the nation’s desirable passport.
To learn how dual citizenship and CIP programmes ‘can change your life’ and as a viable opportunity for those wanting to diversify their options, a second passport from St Kitts and Nevis is a significant accomplishment, supported by a fastest and straightforward method.
Tourism is the main contributor to economic growth on the island, while the Citizenship by Investment Programme is the anchor to stay afloat financially, evident by the governments’ ability to respond to COVID-19.
Currently, investors can maximize the CBI programme agreements that expire on January 15, 2021. This enables families of up to four who choose to become citizens – only need to invest $150,000 instead of $195,000 – a safe and secure route to second citizenship after passing due diligence checks.
