Since the Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program first began in 2016, the scheme has featured two Saint Lucia investment options as pathways to Saint Lucia citizenship and St Lucia immigration: donation and real estate. In addition to these traditional Saint Lucia investment options, a third vehicle is now available: the St Lucia Government Bond Investment. The minimum price for this Saint Lucia citizenship option is $250,000 USD (note, this price is not inclusive of all St Lucia immigration fees).
Introduced in 2020, the St Lucia Government Bond Investment was created with the goal of generating additional revenue during the coronavirus pandemic. The global decline in tourism, and the resulting reduction in St Lucia visa fees from foreign travelers created a need to expand the Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program to include other avenues for Saint Lucia citizenship. This government bond is the latest official initiative to increase St Lucia immigration and generate renewed interest in the Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program.
Investors can purchase a St Lucia Government Bond for a price that depends both on the number of years it is held for and the number of dependents included on their original investment.
Ultimately, the more dependents you have on your Saint Lucia citizenship application, the more expensive your fees. Similarly, the price of the bond is inversely correlated with the length you hold it: the longer you are willing to hold it, the lower its ultimate cost will be.
In exchange for your monetary participation in the St Lucia visa for investment program, you will be able to pursue St Lucia immigration and ultimately receive Saint Lucia citizenship and all the benefits of St Lucia visa-free travel.
The Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program originally intended the St Lucia Government Bond option to be a temporary offering, available only through December 2020. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and lack of St Lucia visa fees, the bond will be available through January 2021, and will likely be extended well into February 2021
