Saint Lucia citizenship through investment is becoming increasingly popular
If you want to get a “golden passport” as quickly as possible and without problems, pay attention to such an island country like Saint Lucia. Currently, there is a steady increase in the demand for this immigration route (namely, obtaining citizenship through subsidies to the local economy). According to recent studies, 97% of all applications for citizenship in Saint Lucia were received with a proposed subsidy fee.
This should be reduced exactly by 2 times, from 200,000 to 100,000 dollars. The number of requests for citizenship through grants has increased more than 10 times (from 36 to 345 applications per year).
What directions of investment are allowed to foreign citizens?
- Investing in real estate. The minimum amount of subsidies is 300000 US dollars. The minimum period of mandatory ownership is 5 years.
- Grants for business. The minimum investment amount is 3500000$ (if there are several investors). No more than 1,000,000 dollars, as well as an additional 50000 government fees.
- Grants to the national economic fund. The size of one subsidy is 100000 US dollars. For two – 165000. A family consisting of 4 people must pay 190000 dollars (if there are additional dependents in the family, then each of them will have to pay another 25000 dollars).
