The Citizenship by Investment Unit of St. Kitts and Nevis has announced that main applicants will be permitted to include siblings in their citizenship by investment applications.
Saint Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Unit has announced effective immediately new legislation to increase the scope of qualifying dependents under the Citizenship by Investment Program.
Who can be included as a sibling?
- Brother(s) or sister(s) of the main applicant (i.e. not of the spouse or any other family member included in the application)
- 30 years of age or younger
- Unmarried and childless
- Financially dependent on the main applicant.
Siblings will have to undergo the same background checks as main applicants and will be subject to the applicable due diligence and government fee scale. The CIU of Saint Kitts and Nevis accepts sworn affidavit from the main applicant confirming the sibling's financial dependence.
What are the main differences in the Caribbean 'sibling policies'?
- The maximum age of siblings in Saint Kitts is set at 30; while it is 25 in Dominica and 18 in Saint Lucia. Grenada appears not to have any such age restrictions.
- Grenada and Saint Lucia further have no requirement for financial dependence on the main applicant.
- Saint Kitts & Nevis and Saint Lucia mandate the individual be a sibling of the main applicant, while the others are also open for siblings of the spouse.
- Antigua & Barbuda does not allow siblings.
