How long does the CBI process take?
Length of process

and not residence
, successful applicants can skip the five to six year minimum residence that other investment immigration routes generally require. In the Caribbean, the entire process from submission of an application
to receipt of approval in principle takes from between three to six months.
St Kitts and Nevis St Kitts and Nevis
offers a more costly 60 day accelerated application process
. For main applicants, the accelerated application process costs $25,000 including due diligence fees which would normally cost the main applicant $7,500. Granted that an applicant can successfully pass the due diligence checks, St Kitts and Nevis has the world’s quickest citizenship timeline – as ranked by the annual CBI Index.
