Last week, St Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister, Dr the Honorable Timothy Harris, attended several events and meetings in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
While in the Emirates, hundreds of St Kitts and Nevis citizens in the region received updates on positive strides being made towards the growth and development of their country at a private event hosted by CS Global Partners, the world’s largest government advisory and marketing firm specialising in citizenship by investment (CBI).
This update was given during a special reception held in Dubai’s Jumeirah Hotel. There, the Prime Minister met with agents and those who became citizens of St Kitts and Nevis through the country’s CBI Programme. The Prime Minister also highlighted opportunities his nation offers businesspeople.
“Among developed countries like the USA and the UK, St Kitts and Nevis continues [to be] a top destination for CBI for Middle Eastern clients,” Prime Minister Harris said.
Citizenship by investment assists investors and entrepreneurs with a guaranteed plan for additional security, smooth mobility and the possibility of migration for themselves and their respective families. To qualify and gain St Kitts and Nevis’ citizenship, individuals need to pass due diligence checks and make an investment in the dual island’s government fund.
According to a Financial Times publication, St Kitts and Nevis ranks as the best CBI Programme of 2021. It is also recognised for having the most extensive offering in the Caribbean for visa-free and visa-on-arrival destinations. Presently, St Kitts and Nevis citizens can travel to over 160 countries and territories across seven continents without limitations of extensive pre-departure paperwork.
“The type of citizenship you have and where you can travel with it is an invaluable currency in this post-Covid era,” said Micha Emmett, the CEO of CS Global Partners.
“A second citizenship is the best investment a business person, entrepreneur, or a family can make to gain financial and travel freedom,” added Emmett.
Other event attendees included Hon Eugene Hamilton, Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Ian MacDonald Liburd, St Kitts and Nevis’ Ambassador to the UAE, Justin Kareem Hawley, and Citizenship by Investment Unit’s CEO Les Khan.
“The arrival of COVID-19 nearly two years ago triggered a range of global trends – some predicted, and some unforeseen – as people radically re-evaluated their life plans. One major trend that saw rise was individuals exploring options for second citizenship across the world,” said Khan.
“To better facilitate our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters and families looking for security, St Kitts and Nevis’ CBI Unit has a limited time offer on its Platinum Standard CBI Programme.”
