Benefits of the Saint Lucia Citizenship Programme


The Caribbean island of Saint Lucia offers one of the most cost-effective programmes in the region. The country lies in the eastern Caribbean Sea and consists of a volcanic island mainly covered in rainforest. It is mostly known for its sandy beaches and its twin mountain peaks. The country is a member of the CARICOM and the Commonwealth. 

The benefits of obtaining citizenship through the Saint Lucia citizenship programme include a swift processing time of 3-6 months for the in-principle approval to be issued, after which the certificate of naturalisation is expressed.

St Lucian citizenship also comes with the ability to include dependents, and more than 148 visa-free travel destinations which include the Schengen Zone, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. 

There are also no physical presence requirements and no requirement to travel to Saint Lucia during the application process. Applicants are also not subject to tax on worldwide income and, furthermore, no education or managerial experience are required.

Before the CIU can process an application, it must be accompanied by all necessary supporting documents and payments of processing and due diligence fees. Upon receiving preliminary approval, the CIU will inform us that the required funds and government administration fees must be paid before the certificate of citizenship can be issued.
