St.Kitts and Nevis Ranks First in the CBI Index

In an era of increasing global uncertainty, individuals seeking to strategically secure their futures are exploring alternative paths, including acquiring second citizenship. This practice opens doors to a world of opportunities and serves as a hedge against uncertain geopolitical landscapes. Amid a plethora of Citizenship by Investment (CBI) options available to savvy investors, the CBI Index emerges as a beacon of guidance—a comprehensive benchmark for assessing the allure and performance of global CBI programs. We are pleased to announce that the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Program has earned the prestigious first place ranking in this year's CBI Index.

The CBI Index: An Overview

The CBI Index, now in its seventh edition, was founded by James McKay, a renowned research consultant with extensive expertise in complex data-driven research. The index represents years of meticulous research and academic acumen, guided by the principles of the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It systematically evaluates the performance of CBI programs worldwide, serving as a valuable resource for individuals navigating the complexities of global citizenship options.


A Structured Evaluation

The CBI Index assesses countries with operational CBI programs. In 2023, this includes 12 nations: Antigua and Barbuda, Austria, Cambodia, Dominica, Egypt, Grenada, Jordan, Malta, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Turkey, and Vanuatu. These programs are evaluated across nine key pillars:

- Standard of Living - Freedom of Movement - Minimum Investment Outlay - Mandatory Travel or Residence - Citizenship Timeline - Ease of Processing - Due Diligence - Family - Certainty of Product

Each pillar is scored on a 10-point scale, providing a comprehensive overview of program strengths and weaknesses.

Authenticity and Credibility

The CBI Index derives its credibility from authentic sources and inputs from industry experts. It relies on official government sources and legislative changes, avoiding speculative alterations, ensuring transparency and accuracy.

Navigating a Challenging Landscape:

The realm of CBI programs is evolving, driven by regulatory changes and global dynamics. Factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and geopolitical shifts have reshaped the landscape, prompting stakeholders to consider the digital-native next generation. Due diligence has become central, demanding rigorous vetting.
