Saint Lucia is a volcanic island located in the Atlantic Ocean in the Caribbean Sea. With breathtaking views of the western mountains, Saint Lucia is filled with unparalleled landmarks making it a perfect destination for tourism and leisure. 

The Saint Lucia Citizenship by Investment program was established in 2015, becoming the fifth country in the Caribbean region to launch a dual citizenship by investment program. Investors and individuals can obtain Saint Lucia citizenship by making a one-time, non-refundable donation to the National Economic Fund, by investing in government bonds, or by investing in a government-approved real estate. The economic citizenship program allows applicants to obtain a second citizenship within four to six months.
