The St. Lucia Citizenship-by-Investment Program offers increased global mobility and opportunity by providing visa-free access to 145 destinations around the world. Prices start from USD 100,000 and passports can be acquired in as little as four months.

Already approved citizens may add dependents within five years of their application being approved. A donation of USD 35,000 applies to spouses, while a donation of USD 25,000 applies to each additional qualifying dependent of any age.
In addition, there is a USD 5,000 due diligence fee for each qualifying dependent aged 16 and older. The government processing fee is USD 1,000 for each qualifying dependent. All qualifying dependents must have a clean personal background with no criminal record and not be under any criminal investigation (other than in respect of a minor offense). A person that is deemed a potential security risk or who is or has been involved in any activity that is likely to bring disrepute to St. Lucia shall not be approved for citizenship.
The application process should take no longer than three months from submission of the application to issuance of the certificate of citizenship, assuming there are no areas of concern with the application. Under the real estate option, the time frame may vary depending on the development.
