Saint Kitts and Nevis is an island country in the West Indies and is the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere. The country is a Commonwealth realm, with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. The Saint Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme was established in 1984, making it the oldest programme of this kind in the world. Since then, the country has continued to lead the economic citizenship industry, and has made it its goal to represent the ‘Platinum Standard’ of citizenship by investment. Today, the Saint Kitts and Nevis Programme stands as the oldest, most trusted, and most successful programme of its kind.
