“Although Jonathan comes with great experience and proven success working in the capital markets; to be specific -- the main reason why I actively recruited Jonathan to Naseba is because of his honorable character.

A few months ago, I was introduced to Jonathan separately by two of my most successful friends in Dubai coincidentally, within the same week.

Each friend told me numerous stories about this man’s integrity. Jonathan has a proven track record of not just understanding what it means to be honorable and to have integrity but delivering on it too.”

My client told me that I had to meet Sara because the young woman sold a friend of his several apartments and he was amazed how caring, and client oriented she proved to be even following up with his friend months after the sale to ensure everything was still going well with each of his apartments.

I have had the honor to work with many great, young talents over the years, but I must state that not many have proven to be as driven, focused and professional as Sara proves to be every day. Her dedication to each of her clients is inspiring to everyone in our Dubai office.”

Why Naseba?

St. Kitts, The Hidden Paradise You Never Thought You Could Call Home

St Kitts is my home. I grew up here just like my father did and like him I think my island is a beautiful place. It is tiny but striking. The green lowlands are home to Basseterre, the capital and a string of tiny villages and the sea is never far away. I learnt to swim early but my father did not. His grandmother who raised him, was like many Kittitians, afraid that something would happen to him if he went to the bay-front. Like any boy, being told not to go somewhere was like an invitation to do just that. But he did not learn how to swim until he was an adult when he travelled abroad and met my mom. My mother swam very well. She is Maltese and her father insisted on it.

So, for us it was different. As kids me and my siblings were taken to the beach often – always with a warning not to play too rough, and to stay where our parents could see us. We went to both sides of the island. The Atlantic side was just down the road from our house when we were growing up. It was basically our back yard. It could be rough at times and we always had to be careful about the currents. They could gently carry us a good distance away without you even noticing.

Our favourite beach was Frigate Bay. It has grey sand but to us kids it was a good place to be on a Sunday afternoon. Dad would go in the water for a while then join his friends to discuss politics and cricket and Mom swam with us but sometimes she would stay home because she had books to mark. We swam, ran races, played cricket and chatted about our favourite cartoon shows on television.

I still go to the beach whenever I get a chance. The water is as clear as ever. There is chill to it in the morning, enough to wake you up but it quickly becomes warm. The sand is inviting – great for a lie down before the heat of the day sets in. There are more people there these days, but it is not a crowed as the European rivieras.

Frigate Bay has changed. The sea-grape bushes close to the water’s edge are gone. Looking over the cliffs to the Caribbean Sea are Horizon’s Villas and Fort Tyson Rise. There were condo developments offering investors the ability to qualify for a second passport. Most of their owners were US citizens who moved to St. Kitts in the early 1990s and made up the growing expat population. Silver Reef Condos, Marriott Residences and the Royal St. Kitts are newer developments who over time have increased the real estate value in Frigate Bay and made it a popular entertainment spot on the island.

Now some 25 years later there is the Frigate Bay Strip. It is a collection of beach bars and restaurants where you can buy refreshments and amazing food. You can rent jet skis and kayaks or even jump on a catamaran and go for a sail. We no longer carry coolers full of drinks when we go to the beach. You can just walk up to a bar and order a cold beer or soft drink. At night, especially on the weekends, the place comes alive to the sound of Reggae, Soca and Dancehall music and teems with a mix of locals, tourists and university students. Each beach bar has its own type of crowd. At happy hour on Fridays the university students take over Chinchillas, both locals and tourists gather around Vibes Beach Bar and on Sunday evenings you can sway away to live music playing at The Dock.

The Frigate bay area has benefited the most since the establishment of the St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship by investment program 30 years ago. St. Kitts has had many years to improve and refine their product and has created a healthy climate for business growth and investment.

The beaches have always been a place where families and friends gather. Even with the many changes and the consistent development to the infrastructure around them, there are somethings that remain constant. The water is clear, the sky is blue, kids still learn to swim there, and families meet on Sundays after lunch. Tourists and visitors are always welcome, and we Kittitians always continue to enjoy the simple things that make living here great.

Nevis: Sea, Sand and Serenity

So, I have told you about my home St. Kitts, but honestly who would I be if I did not tell you about our sister island, a hidden gem, Nevis. Without a doubt Nevis promises to be a Caribbean experience different from any other, different from St. Kitts and they are just a 45-minute ferry ride apart. Most small Caribbean islands are described as getaways “off the beaten path,” but not Nevis. Nevis is something totally different, it’s magical and alluring.

Even though the islands are so close together, my first visit to Nevis was when I was about 9 years old and my aunt who lived in England came home for a vacation. She took us to Nevis to visit family. I was excited, and while I had travelled away from St. Kitts before the experience of hopping on ferry to visit and island I could almost reach out and touch felt surreal. I was quite disappointed however when we got there. It took less than 10 minutes to get to our cousin’s house and while it was comfortable and a beautiful lush emerald-green spot, I felt uncomfortable because of the quiet, the silence. Now at 9 years old St. Kitts was my world and I honestly felt it was more advanced, larger and more vibrant that sleepy little old Nevis. The vibe was completely lost on me and I was so happy to go back home that day.

Over the years I had to visit Nevis for school trips, and a here and there visits to see family. It only was when I started working as a young adult, that I truly understood what Nevis had to offer. Some friends convinced me to go with them for a weekend stay-cation involving a beach day, messages and great food. I was very skeptical, I felt like we could do that in St. Kitts, that it would be a waste to spend a weekend in Nevis just to do the same things I could do at home.

We took a day trip over on a catamaran, enjoyed some snorkeling out in the deep blue waters and had lunch on the golden sands of sunshine beach in Nevis. We checked in at Oualie Beach Resort nestled in New Castle. The rooms were literally 10 steps from the water’s edge and they were comfortable and practical. Even though we spent most of the day on the cat in the sun, we wasted no time heading out for dinner at the islands popular beach spot, Sunshine Beach Bar. The food was so flavourful and amazing, fresh lobster, barbeque ribs and I had the tastiest and flakiest grilled mahi mahi . The drinks were also incredible and I still hadn’t noticed yet but the atmosphere and energy that Nevis was giving off was intoxicating. We ended the night drinking Sunshine Beach Bar’s famous signature drink “the Killer Bee,” and it was safe to say no one had trouble sleeping that night.

Surprisingly, the next morning we woke with the rising sun. I felt refreshed and relaxed and reenergized all in one. We had breakfast from the resort’s restaurant out on the beach chairs listening to the waves gently sweep the shore. It was unbelievable how slow time moved lounging on the beach that morning and even though we headed out for an island drive around 10:30 a.m. we kept thinking it was mid-afternoon.

The island tour was over quicker than expected and not because we skipped over some places. Nevis is never crowded. Tourist visit the island constantly and yet the island’s must-see spots are never over-populated. Our massage was again on Oualie beach and to this day I compare that relaxing moment to every other I have experienced. The ocean air, the ambiance made everything come together so smoothly. I don’t think I could have asked for a more tranquil setting.

Our last day on Nevis was spent again lounging on the beach. This time we visited Chrishi Beach Club at Cades Bay. The beach was empty and felt secluded and private. It was at this point, when my “stay-cation” was almost over that I realized I had fallen in love with my sister island. Every little stress I had in the world vanished, the regular things that popped into my head like my to do lists, work and everyday life felt like distant memories, and seemed unimportant. My friends and I were a chatty group, but that day on Cades Bay, we sat comfortably surrounded by sand and sea and spoke about nothing. Our minds were open and our spirits lifted. Nevis did that and continues to draw in the weary visitor whose only desire it to enjoy and reset.

I can only look back at my 9-year-old self and laugh that this beautiful serene island was lost on me. Over the years it would appear that Nevis has changed ever so slightly, but in fact it hasn’t. Nevis has had major changes new hotels and villas spot dotted around the islands coast line, but it is the magic that Nevis possess that makes it feel unaltered. Four Season’s Resort Nevis, the islands largest and most exclusive hotel was established in the 1990s. Since then Four Season’s Estates a luxury villa development and over 30 more real estate developments offer second citizenship to many qualified applicants over the years. Nevis has become one of the Caribbean’s favourite hideaways for celebrities, Royalty and A-list politicians like Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. Many of them own or lease luxury properties in Nevis. The island welcomes visitors and expats who are more interested in lifestyle changes rather than another beach front property.

Citizenship by Investment approved developments have stimulated construction jobs across the island of Nevis and has also increased the amount of jobs available in the hospitality sector. The island is ripe for land, property, hotel and villa developments and the island is able to expand beyond simple real estate investment.

Nevis is remarkably venturing into the geothermal energy sector. The island seeks to tap into a geothermal source dubbed “The garden” to provide a sustainable, natural energy for Nevis and its neighboring islands.

Investing in Nevis does not only provide you a passport and property ownership, St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship by investment program fosters long term relationships with the country and its people. Nevis welcomes new citizens, and promotes strongly that they not only add to the islands economic growth but increases value to the social well-being of the island on a whole. Nevis welcomes, the talent vision and resources of its economic citizens and invites them to openly reside on its shores.

Earn a Medical Degree in the Tropical Paradise of St. Kitts and Nevis

Tertiary education is progressively becoming more expensive and the prospects of obtaining a medical degree from universities in Europe, Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom can become an intimidating endeavour to undertake. Most persons who dream of becoming medical doctors more commonly opt to study with medical programs outside their country of residence adding to the already mounting costs of gaining their medical degree.

Over the years Medical Universities in the Caribbean have grown in popularity and are fast becoming the best places to study Medicine. They provide potential candidates a greater chance of acceptance because of eased eligibility criteria as well as affordable tuition rates. Students receive instruction in a more relaxed tropical environment surrounded by sunshine, beautiful rainforests and beaches opposed to the traditional and conventional medical university. The most noteworthy attraction for most candidates studying in St. Kitts and Nevis is the ability to complete their clinical rotations in the United States where most of the international accredited Universities are permanently established.

The twin federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is home to approximately 5 regionally and internationally accredited nursing and medical institution. As a popular alternative these institutions have generated rising interest with entrants originating from India, Pakistan and Nigeria. The courses are all offered in English and provide students with a wealth of international exposure as many of their instructions are given at the local Joseph N France General Hospital in St. Kitts and the Alexandra Hospital in Nevis. Both medical institutions accommodate visiting doctors and nurses from all over the world.

For many years St. Kitts and Nevis has offered top-class nursing education to individuals from all over the Caribbean and even North America. The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College, the federations Junior College offers award winning Bachelor of Science in Nursing degrees as well as a Midwifery and a Nursing Assistants Certificate programs. It is a commonly known fact that graduates have found themselves working in hospitals in the United Kingdom, Dubai, UAE and ROC Taiwan just to name a few making the program a popular alternative than other courses offered in the region.

Living in St. Kitts and Nevis is not as intimidating as it would seem. Both islands provide beautiful, elegant condominium style accommodations to medical students. The country’s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program established for over 30 years has provided luxurious living quarters through their real estate options with some universities like the Windsor University School of Medicine providing students living quarters at a 4-star luxury hotel resort. This allows students the ability to balance their studies with personal interests and light recreational activities all while residing in safe and secure environment at the resort. The families of some medical students have even taken advantage of the real estate option offered by the CBI program allowing them to buy a property and obtain citizenship creating the greater opportunity for their children to live and study in St. Kitts and not worry about residential costs.

So, if your son or daughter wants to start a career in Medicine and dreams of being a medical doctor or a trained nurse someday studying in St. Kitts and Nevis can easily make that dream a reality.

They can achieve a degree in an island paradise that will not only make them feel as though you are on vacation but can also provide them a sense of belonging. Consider not only investing in their education but in your family’s overall security and future with a real estate investment in the St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment program.

  • Be 18 years or older;
  • Successfully clear a thorough background investigation;
  • Demonstrate your ability to make an investment of either US$150,000.00 to the national fund or US$400,000.00 for the purchase of a qualified real estate property; and

Naseba will provide you professional guidance through every step of the process. After we help with your document gathering, we provide you with timely updates and ensure you never feel overwhelmed.

Selecting an Investment Option

You cannot be considered for citizenship unless you make a monetary investment into St. Kitts and Nevis. It sounds daunting and expensive, but it is actually not as difficult as you may think to prove to officials that you can complete an investment. This investment program currently offers two investment options.

The Sustainable Growth Fund Contribution – To qualify an applicant contributes after receiving pre-approval the sum of US$150,000.00 towards a government operated nation fund. Your investment is used towards the improvement of the island’s education, health and intratarsal needs.

Approved Real Estate Property Purchase – St. Kitts and Nevis has the oldest established property investment program. Applicants purchase property or shares in a pre-approved real estate project. Pre-approved include international branded hotels, condominiums and million-dollar villas and world class marina developments. Each applicant investment must be at least US$400,000.00.

Naseba has helped many investors receive their second passports through ownership of a condo and marina dock slip at Tamarind Cove Hotel and Marina Development. The development offers premium privileges with preferred access to the yacht club and gourmet dining and shopping.

Documentation and the process

We have discussed eligibility and your options for investment, but the most important aspect of this entire process is the documentation you provide and your responses in the application forms. Meticulous documents and true and concise answers always makes for a successful application.

  • Gather all important and required documents before filling out your forms. These documents include but are not limited to passports, national IDs, birth certificates, employment letters, evidence of residential address and bank statements. Once you have gathered all the documents and they meet the government’s document criteria completing your application forms will be so much easier.
  • Your answers on the application forms must always be verified by the documents you provide. The declarations are yes/no responses and your answers must be truthful. Uncertain about how to respond to a specific question, then let the staff at Naseba help you. Incorrect responses can result in approval delays or worse, a denial of your citizenship application.
  • Trust your processing agent. Most applicants think they can work through this process on their own and then demand that the documents they provide and responses they give are perfect and be submitted to the Unit. Many applications are rejected prior to processing because of poor documentation and responses. Let persons who have the knowledge and experience with the program tailor your application package to ensure success.

The St. Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Unit painstakingly and accurately authenticates, verifies and vets all the information provided through your documentation and due diligence investigation.
