Important factors to consider in residence planning
Nevis is an exclusive Caribbean destination with impressive natural beauty, and a rich history with varied influences from different cultures. The island offers sunshine almost year-round, and a diverse range of landscapes. It also offers the longest-established citizenship-by-investment program in the world.
One route to attaining citizenship is by investing in an approved real estate development. Henley & Partners, the global leader in residence and citizenship planning, works closely with the Four Seasons Resort Estates on Nevis, one of the most desirable real estate options.
The citizenship-by-investment program has a number of key advantages for successful applicants, including visa-free travel to over 130 countries including the UK and Europe, and excellent air links to North America and Europe.
Those opting for the real estate route to citizenship are welcome to reside in their property on a full time basis, however they may also consider entering their property into the rental program to capitalize on the demand for rooms at the resort.
The Caribbean’s only Four Seasons is located on a former sugar and coconut plantation. The resort is decorated with lush gardens, white sandy beaches and crystal clear water, and is home to the most highly regarded golf course in the country.
The island resort currently has three villas at Pinney's Beach under construction, with four already completed, making a total of seven finished villas by the end of summer 2016. The four completed villas were all fully booked for the Christmas and New Year period 2015 at a minimum rate of USD 8,800 per night for 12 nights. This alone will cover nearly 75% of the annual expenses to operate the home.
Citizenship applications for the St. Kitts and Nevis programs via investment in the Four Seasons resort may be processed in about three months.
