Saint Kitts and Nevis and Dominica to accept online applications for citizenship by investment
The demand for citizenship in Caribbean countries has increased sharply against the background of the pandemic, writes Caribbean 360.
Two other Caribbean countries, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Dominica, have started accepting applications online for the citizenship by investment program. Earlier, the same decision was made by Grenada. These measures are taken in connection with the spread of the coronavirus.
Department of citizenship by investment (CBIU) Dominica will work remotely and accept applications online. This is a temporary measure aimed at protecting agents who are engaged in the processing of applications. In the future, you will need to provide the original documents.
Saint Kitts and Nevis also accepts documents uploaded electronically to the online system. “It is important to emphasize that the interim measures will not compromise the strict due diligence procedures that individuals applying for citizenship of Saint Kitts and Nevis through investment must undergo,” said Les Hahn, Director General of the Department of citizenship by investment (CIU) of Saint Kitts and Nevis.
The demand for investment citizenship of Caribbean countries has grown significantly, writes Caribbean 360. “There is a significant increase in demand for information on how to obtain a second citizenship of Caribbean countries, which are known for their experience, faster processing of applications, which takes from two to four months, and the lack of residence requirements, although this is offset by more stringent security checks,” comments Paul Singh, Director of investment immigration Agency CS Global Partners.
He says citizens of the affected countries are looking for an urgent plan “B”. One of the main reasons why applicants seek citizenship through investment now is to ensure the safety of their families as soon as possible.
