      Advantages Of Including A St. Lucia Passport

      It’s crucial to comprehend precisely how your current passport works with a second citizenship and passport to grant visa-free travel across the planet. Not only counting the number of countries that don’t require visas, but also weighing the significance and appeal of those places. Only La Vida uses advanced metrics created for business and leisure travel to provide such thorough analysis for the St. Lucia Passport and for passports obtained via other citizenship investment schemes. To receive your free report customized to your current citizenship and passport, get in touch with us and speak to one of our experts.

      St Lucia offers citizenship by investment to individuals who contribute to the country in one of four ways: by donating $100,000 to the government National Economic Fund; by purchasing real estate from $200,000; by buying at least $300,000 in government bonds; or investing at least $1 million in local enterprise.

      St. Lucia economic citizenship costs $100,000 for a single application, plus a contribution to the National Economic Fund of $7,500, along with a $2,000 administration charge and $7,500 for due diligence.

      You need a valid visa to enter the United States if you're a citizen of Saint Lucia. You must apply for a US B1/B2 visa for travel and business. Only at an embassy of the US is that possible.

      When submitted to St. Lucia's Citizenship by Investment Unit, applications for the country's citizenship investment program typically take 3 to 4 months to process (CIU). Most applicants often need 2 to 6 weeks to compile all of their paperwork before this. There is no need to travel because La Vida's internal processing team will help applicants with every step of the procedure. All countries are permitted dual citizenship in Saint Lucia. It is important to inquire about dual citizenship policies in your current nation.
