Saint Lucia, located in the eastern Caribbean Sea, is famous for its stunning landscapes and vibrant culture. It is characterized by its breathtaking volcanic peaks known as the “Pitons,” two notable volcanic summits that rise significantly from the sea surface and are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The island serves as a haven for nature enthusiasts, featuring lush tropical forests, botanical gardens, and pristine beaches like Reduit Beach and Anse Chastanet Beach. Saint Lucia hosts numerous festivals and events, such as the renowned Saint Lucia Jazz Festival, attracting visitors from around the world. The warm and welcoming local culture, coupled with diverse cuisine and adventurous activities like diving, boat rides, and hiking, adds a special charm to Saint Lucia as a stunning destination.

The Citizenship by Investment program in Saint Lucia was launched, drawing on the experience of other Caribbean nations in this field. The program implementation began in January 2016, governed by Citizenship by Investment Act No. 14, enacted in 2015, outlining the program’s procedures. The program is designed to ensure high efficiency for applicants, benefiting from best practices in this field. Foreign investors can obtain permanent citizenship and a second passport within 6 months.
