To maintain citizenship, investors are required to hold their qualifying investment in an approved project for a minimum of 5 years.
Thereafter, the investment may be sold and a subsequent investor may also apply for and benefit from citizenship, utilizing the same limited partnership investment instrument. In such circumstances, the original investor will be entitled to retain citizenship of St. Kitts & Nevis.
Based on income and capital gain projections, the investor is expected to receive an amount equivalent to the capital invested and the majority of government fees paid at the outset, following the expiry of the 5-year period. This estimation is based on the historical increase in citizenship prices.
