Yearbook 2018

2018 Saint Kitts and Nevis

In March, Saint Christopher and Nevis were placed on the EU's black list of so-called tax havens. Two months later, the country was again removed after going to the EU to meet crucial points.

During the year, a new fund for sustainable development was created where money from "sold" citizenship will be collected. Saint Christopher and Nevis are one of the small states in the world that offer foreigners to become citizens against investing a certain amount of money. At US $ 150,000 for one person or 195,000 for an entire family, one can become a citizen of the small island state.

In April, the government presented a proposal for stricter conditions for voting in the parliamentary elections. Only citizenship should no longer suffice, but anyone who wants to vote must live for at least half the year in the country.
