Saint Lucia Citizenship and passport Program

Saint Lucia has a quality of life that is rivalled by very few places in the world. We have a relatively low crime rate, access to modern facilities, services and infrastructure, world class restaurants and hotels and prime real estate. Residents have the options of living closer to the major population centers or closer to the more tranquil countryside to enjoy greener living. It takes just over an hour to travel from the north to the south of the island on a light traffic day, so no place is very far.

When opting to be a citizen of Saint Lucia, you must be aware that we are not just offering citizenship but we are offering an identity, a people and our place in the world. We are a special and extraordinary island. We are the owners of a unique patrimony. It is one thing to have a beautiful country, beautiful topography but it is really the people that inhabit that land that makes the vital difference. Saint Lucia’s motto captures all of our combined treasures – the land, the people, the light.
