United Arab Emirates Accepts Appointment Of First St Kitts And Nevis Ambassador Justin Kareem Hawley

This important appointment comes when the governments of St Kitts and Nevis and the UAE continue to explore how the two can further cooperate. The two nations currently liaise in areas of renewable energy development, climate change adaptation and tourism.

St Kitts and Nevis is also home to many individuals from the Middle East, including the Gulf countries, that constitute a vital part of the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme of St Kitts and Nevis. The programme grants citizenship to individuals of high net worth and their families, generally within a matter of months, who get visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to nearly 160 countries. Furthermore, new citizens are also permitted access to healthcare, education and full working and living rights in the sunny Caribbean nation.

Nevis's Premier, Hon. Mark Brantley, also applauded the new Ambassador. "I congratulate our very first Ambassador to the UAE HE Justin Hawley. This significant upgrade to our diplomatic presence in the Middle East will allow St Kitts and Nevis to continue to deepen and strengthen relations with this significant region of the world," he tweeted.

The CBI programme was launched in St Kitts and Nevis in 1984 to stimulate foreign direct investment inflows and is now the longest-standing in the world. Last month, it was ranked as the best globally by the Financial Times' PWM magazine.
