Prime Minister Timothy Harris of Saint Kitts & Nevis has announced, in a circular to agents, that he is amending the rules for switching applications between the real estate investment and donation options under the country’s Citizenship by Investment Programme.
Switching between options will henceforth cost US$25,000, up from the previous US$10,000.
The move comes after weeks of discussions and allegations of agents’ swapping of investment options after approval in principle and without client consent.
