ST. KITTS AND NEVIS CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAMME

Goin’ on –Welcome or How are you?

Named after the patron saint of all travellers, St. Christopher, the twin island state of St. Kitts (originally Saint Christopher) and Nevis, has unsurpassed views and deep histories. St. Kitts was once known as the Gibraltar of the West Indies for its domination of 18th- century colonial battles. It gave inspiration to the song, Amazing Grace, and is now home to the last railway in the Caribbean, built to transport sugar cane from plantations, and which now gives a glimpse into the region’s vast sugar production history. While preserving history, St. Kitts and Nevis is also very modern, focused on development and poised for the future.
