The St Lucia Government has reduced the minimum investment required for enterprise projects from $3.5 million to $100,000 making it easy for investors applying for citizenship by investment. A third new reduced option has been introduced under this category by the Saint Lucia government.

The Regulations for Enterprise Projects are published the Citizenship by Investment Act No. 14 of 2015 (‘‘the Act’’) and the Citizenship by Investment Regulations No. 89 of 2015 (‘‘the Regulations’’).  The Enterprise project option can be cheaper for families applying for CIP compared to donation option.
