With its acclaimed natural beauty and ideal climate, St. Lucia is definitely a tourist’s paradise. It is part of the Commonwealth, and the head of state is Queen Elizabeth II.


St. Lucia has an educated workforce, and continuing infrastructure improvements have attracted investments in tourism and other industries. The offshore banking industry is another important source of revenue.


Castries, the capital, is a regular port of call for cruise liners, with its excellent natural harbor. Tourism is one of the main revenue-earners, but St. Lucia has diversified manufacturing sectors in the Caribbean.


St. Lucia is part of the British Commonwealth, and member of the United Nations, and several other organizations, including the Caribbean Community, the Association of Caribbean States, and others.


The St. Lucia Citizenship by Investment Program or CIP was launched in 2015, by an act of Parliament which passed the Citizenship by Investment Bill, making it the newest of the Caribbean CIP, benefiting from the experience of neighboring nations.
