There are two main ways you can get a Saint Lucia passport. The first is by making a minimum (minimum) $100,000 USD investment in the country’s National Economic Fund (NEF). This is called the donation option. The second is by making a monetary investment of $300,000 USD (minimum) in the St Lucia real estate market. Both options fall under the St Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program; an economic citizenship scheme in which applicants effectively pay money in exchange for a St. Lucia passport. (A third option involving the purchase of government bonds is also available for a limited time).
