Sovereign Research's take:

Saint Kitts and Nevis is part of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), allowing its citizens to live and work in any other OECS country.
Saint Kitts and Nevis has one big thing going for it – it’s home to the longest-running Citizenship By Investment (CBI) program in the world, active since 1984.

While it is definitely not the cheapest CBI option in the Caribbean, it enjoys a stellar reputation. And a Saint Kitts passport is quite decent in terms of visa-free travel, too.

Several of our subscribers have become dual citizens by participating in the program. And we are happy to report that they became Kittittians cheaper than anyone else in the world, thanks to the deep CBI discounts we’ve negotiated for our Total Access members.

If you are considering Saint Kitts (or any other) CBI program, you will definitely do yourself a favor by joining Total Access. The discount you will receive will either match or exceed the price you’ll pay for the membership.

(See all applicable  CBI program prices and the available discounts in our interactive CBI calculator.)

Additionally, the name of the country suggests that besides Saint Kitts, there is also Nevis. 

The country is technically a federation between the two islands, and they enjoy a certain degree of freedom in establishing their own policies.

Over time, Nevis evolved into one a successful “offshore” jurisdiction with very solid asset protection laws.

Nevis LLCs and trusts are very popular vehicles in the asset protection sphere. We covered them in this SMC Alert..
