Getting a Second Passport

Receiving a second passport from a country requires you to be a citizen of that country. To be considered a citizen you will have to be born in that country, be married to someone born of said country, have a parent born in that country or be naturalized as a citizen (this is someone who has held residency for a specific period of time who is then granted citizenship). There are special circumstances under which citizenship can be procured in many countries, these methods are usually not publicized and are reserved for a select few as they involve hefty investments in the countries involved.


St. Kitts and Nevis is a twin island paradise located in the Caribbean Sea. It has a GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of US $726 million as of 2009. With a population of approximately 52,000, low crime rates and a growing tourism and agricultural sector St. Kitts and Nevis is an excellent choice for gaining citizenship. Economic citizenship can be procured with an approved real estate investment.

These properties must be approved by the government and the selling price of the property must be at least US $350,000.00. Before this investment can be made the applicant must pay a mandatory, one-time fee of $35,000.00. This investment property can qualify your spouse and children under 18 for citizenship as well.
