The St. Lucia citizenship by investment program is an attractive option for entrepreneurs, investors, and families, and is especially popular with super-yacht owners – thanks to the fact that St. Lucia is a world renowned super-yacht destination. As such, super-yacht owners – as well as all global Is – interested in leveling up their personal, business, and financial freedom and mobility have been capitalizing on the opportunity that is the St. Lucia citizenship program for years.

Though it is among the youngest CIPs, the Caribbean island nation’s citizenship program has witnessed exponential growth in interest year-after-year since it was launched in 2015.

Due to the program’s very accessible investment threshold and quick processing times (typically only 3-6 months) the enhanced freedom, flexibility, and financial benefits, gained by St.Lucia citizenship is regarded by many investors as a near immediate ROI – that, of course, comes with the privilege to live in a contemporary tropical maritime paradise.

Permit Astons’ team of seasoned and officially licensed experts to guide you and your family through every step of the St. Lucian citizenship process, and address any questions, concerns, or insights you may have; such as:

Program Requirements

The St. Lucia citizenship by investment program is known as one of the easiest and most accessible for any entrepreneur, investor, and family to embrace. While minimal, the Government of St. Lucia requires applicants to meet certain criteria that is designed to identify only the best candidates:

  • Investment Tolerance: All applications for St. Lucia citizenship must demonstrate the main investor’s capacity and ability to satisfy all the required costs involved, including the primary investment which begins at $100,000 [and increases based upon additional applicants and the chosen investment channel] as well as all program-related fees. Typically, this requires bank statements, but additional documentation may be requested, such as employment history and companies you own, owned, or have been a stakeholder of.
  • Due Diligence: The application must include documented evidence of the main investor’s clean criminal record from the applicants’ birth country and any nation they’ve lived in for over one year within the last decade. All applicants are required to provide passports, birth certificates, national ID cards, proof of address, and any other documentation the government deems necessary.
  • Health Status: Applicants must be of good health to eliminate any potential burdens for the country’s health care system. Applicants are required to provide a medical certificate as part of the application process​​​​.
  • Mandated Interviews: All applicants are required to participate in remote-based interviews. The interviews are a part of the due diligence layer as a means to verify that the applicants are good candidates for citizenship.
  • Investment Options: The minimum required cash investment for the St. Lucia program is $100,000, but this also depends upon an investor’s chosen investment channel. For ESG-conscious investors, the fund contribution that begins at $100,000 is best. For investors seeking a real estate interest, the minimum investment begins at $200,000.
