We found this great article from Newswire.ca. St. Kitts and Nevis is now the #1 fastest approval citizenship program in the entire world while still retaining that excellent level of security, safety and customer service.
BASSETERRE, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Sept. 7, 2020 /CNW/ — The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis offers one of the best citizenship by investment (CBI) programmes in the world. This is according to a new report issued by Professional Wealth Management magazine, a publication from the Financial Times. St Kitts and Nevis remains the country with the fastest citizenship timeline, providing one of the most certain and family-appealing CBI programmes, particularly in light of its new limited-time offer.
In the 2020 CBI Index, the Federation’s CBI Programme ranked number one or joint-first for offering fast and straightforward processing, reliable due diligence, and certainty, with an unrivalled experience of 36 years. It also obtained top marks for not requiring applicants to travel and reside for any minimum period.
The CBI Index discussed St Kitts and Nevis’ limited-time offer which allows vetted families of up to four to obtain citizenship for US$150,000 instead of US$195,000 through the fund option. The report recognises the growing importance to investors to be able to obtain citizenship for their families too. St Kitts and Nevis allows future generations of successful applicants to inherit citizenship.
Prime Minister Dr the Hon. Timothy Harris commented: “St Kitts and Nevis is not only a place for investors to thrive in, but also a welcoming home for their children and grandchildren. We have made our streets safer and our rule of law – stronger. We keep investing in education and healthcare. Our economy is resilient even when faced with external shocks like a global pandemic.”
Les Khan, the CEO of the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU), said: “We continue to focus on what matters to investors most, while ensuring that we maintain our ‘Platinum Standard’ brand. Our limited-time offer comes at a time when investors value family safety and security more than ever. That is why we have decided to temporarily allow them to add up to three members of their family for the same amount of contribution as for a single applicant.”
Under the Accelerated Application Process feature, investors can obtain citizenship – and their passport, a separate process to CBI – within 60 days. Applicants must first undergo a multi-tiered due diligence process. The CIU introduced a temporary provision, instituted in the context of Covid-19, whereby Authorised Persons – who are mandatory to apply through – may submit applications online. However, the CIU will not issue an approval without receipt of the physical application at a later date.
Once successful, economic citizens earn the right to live, work, and study in St Kitts and Nevis. They can also travel visa-free or with a visa-on-arrival to almost 160 countries and territories, and enjoy all the economic and social benefits as native citizens.

Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 02, 2020 (SKNIS): The full reopening of the hotel sector in St. Kitts and Nevis is expected to come within the next few weeks. Prime Minister Dr the Honourable Timothy Harris is urging hotels to be diligent in their preparations so as to limit any spread of COVID-19.
Hoteliers and other stakeholders in the tourism industry are currently participating in training organized by the Ministry of Tourism. The mandatory sessions are designed to sensitize stakeholders on the minimum health and safety COVID-19 protocols.
Additionally, regulation 18 of the COVID-19 Emergency Powers outlines the conditions where a hotel may apply for approval to return to operations during a second phase reopening. Schedule III Part I of regulation 18, gives a comprehensive breakdown of the protocol for the hotel industry.
“All hotel employees should make themselves familiar with the new rules,” Prime Minister Harris stated on the September 01 edition of the Leadership Matters Virtual Forum Series. “I urge hotel operators to begin the preparations for an October opening, making the necessary physical and other adjustments in advance, and to test their systems and their ability to respond appropriately.”
The guidelines are published in the Statutory Rules and Orders No. 39 of 2020. A copy of the SR&O can be accessed online via the resource centre at www.covid19.gov.kn.
In conjunction with borders reopening, the Prime Minister announced that the Federation’s major hotels remain committed partners to the tourism sector. The St. Kitts Marriott Resort and Park Hyatt St. Kitts will reopen in October 2020. The Park Hyatt’s Fisherman’s Village reopened last week Friday, August 7, 2020. Koi, a Curio Collection by Hilton hotel, will reopen in the fourth quarter of 2020. The Royal St. Kitts Hotel is currently operating with reduced capacity. The Four Seasons Resort Nevis will soon announce reopening plans.
In preparation for the borders reopening, the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, the Nevis Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Tourism in conjunction with the Ministries of Health and Civil Aviation are conducting training for over 5,000 tourism industry stakeholders including hotels at no cost to them. The training aims to educate stakeholders in the health and safety protocols and standards that must be met in order to obtain the “Travel Approved” certification and seal from the respective Tourism Authority that will be required for them to operate.
The phased reopening is being implemented with the advisement of the Chief Medical Officer, the Medical Chief of Staff and medical experts. At their advice, the Federation has successfully flattened the curve. St. Kitts & Nevis has the fewest number of confirmed cases in all the CARICOM independent states at a total of 17 with 0 active cases at this time and 0 deaths to date. This is a direct result of the Federation’s “all society approach” and adherence to established protocols including social distancing, hand washing and mask-wearing that remain in place.
When diving into home ownership, you may notice words and terms
flying around that you don’t understand. To avoid overwhelming you with
the ins and outs of the real estate language, let’s start by talking
about the difference between an exclusive and non-exclusive listing.
Exclusive Listing: An exclusive listing arrangement means you are granting your agent with exclusive access to find a buyer for your home. With this type of agreement no other agent will bring potential buyers to your home because only the listing agent is entitled to the commission. After an agreed period of time, you can arrange to work with other agents.
Non-Exclusive Listing: A non-exclusive listing arrangement means your listing will be available to other agents and they will have the opportunity to bring potential buyers to your home. The advantage of this type of arrangement is the exposure of your home. Your listing will be syndicated to various websites including remax-stkitts.com which allows potential buyers and agents to consider your home. Non-exclusive listings are the most common type of agreements in the Real Estate market.
To put it simply: Exclusive Listings will be less work for you, the owner/seller as you only need to deal with one agent. That agent will be coordinating efforts with all other agents and potential buyers. Non-exclusive agreements means that you have to deal with all the agents who are trying to sell your property. Some agents might offer added bonuses for going exclusive with them as well.
Your real estate agent will discuss both options with you to determine the right strategy for your home. Visit remax-stkitts.com to get in touch with a local RE/MAX agent who will be able to walk you through the options to determine which one is right for you!
