Citizenship in St. Kitts, Nevis increases with easing of COVID-19 lockdown

The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis have announced, that with no more active COVID-19 cases, with all 15 recovered and no related deaths, it has met the six criteria set by the World Health Organisation guiding whether to ease lockdown restrictions, the countries said.

The Caribbean twin islands have no more active COVID-19 cases, with all 15 recovered, and no related deaths. However Prime Minister Timothy Harris is in no rush to open the country´s borders, though restrictions are being relaxed gradually. Meanwhile, foreign investors are showing more interest in applying for Citizenship by Investment (CBI) from St Kitts and Nevis.

According to the initial regulations lasting until June 13, incoming regular commercial flights have stopped, however emergency flights may be permitted subject to pre-approval from Air Ports Authorities. Health experts advised the government to continue keeping the borders closed for the time being.

The Prime Minister also announced plans for more modern healthcare facilities on the islands to complement existing ones.

The cautious approach and easing of lockdown measures appears to have triggered more interest from foreign investors seeking second citizenship from St Kitts and Nevis.
