St Kitts and Nevis Solidifies Global Appeal as It Welcomes Four Cruise Ships Simultaneously

Updated: Dec 16, 2021

The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis' successful cruise season continues to show the country's worldwide appeal as a top travel destination, thanks to the COVID-19 epidemic and stringent travel regulations. St Kitts and Nevis has enjoyed a successful cruise season for many years. Despite the COVID-19 epidemic and strict travel restrictions, the islands have continued to attract holidaymakers near and far.

St Kitts and Nevis Solidifies Global Appeal as It Welcomes Four Cruise Ships Simultaneously

St Kitts and Nevis welcomed more than 41,000 passengers in November, with the timing set to start in December, with 60 cruise calls scheduled for the month. This is made possible by the government's careful management of the COVID-19 virus, ensuring that citizens and visitors are prioritised while still providing a stimulating travel experience.

Last month, St Kitts and Nevis celebrated the milestone of welcoming three cruise ships simultaneously, the first since the epidemic. It represents a pivotal moment for the entire nation: "This is a significant occasion for our cruise line partners in this beautiful Federation," said Vice Prime Minister Shawn Richards at the time.

For two years, the islands experienced the arrival of one million cruise passengers. They had been hailed as a "marquee destination" by the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association before the global health crisis.

Investment into the cruise sector has only contributed to the project's success. The construction of Port Zante has enabled more ships to dock at the same time, bringing more people to the islands, which in turn supports tourism stakeholders and the more excellent economy. The initiative that generates foreign direct investments in exchange for second citizenship contributed to the project.

St Kitts and Nevis operate the industry's longest-standing CBI Programme, established in 1984, with over three decades of experience in the investment migration industry. The initiative has gone on to expire similar adaptions throughout the world. Known as a 'Platinum Standard' brand, St Kitts and Nevis is the world's top way to second citizenship, as stated by experts.

Applicants can now take advantage of a limited offer until December 31st, allowing families of four citizenship for $150,000 rather than the previous $195,000.
