There are many people who love traveling to other places, specially into different countries to have some fun and experience new things. Where they travel usually depends on their preferences and the aim they have for that trip such as educational, leisure or business. Whatever the reason might be, several documents are needed for international trips like visa and passport.
Another reason for a person to travel into another country is to become a citizen there due to a specific purpose they may have. So they will need to follow the St Kitts passport program which is more commonly known as citizenship by investment. These passports given by the government there allows the holder to visit the other member countries of Caribbean Community.
This program that is also called as an immigrant investor program allows individuals to buy their passport and is the most popular place for doing so. There is no requirement for the buyers to visit or live in the country and a family of four can purchase them for 150,000 dollars. Possessing this document allows the holder to travel into 132 countries without the need for visa.
There was a warning though that was given years ago against those foreign individuals which abused the program granted by the government. This is because some of them were found out to have used this to engage in illicit financial activities. Some countries even required them to get visa first before entering their area because of identity management practices.
Because of these announcements, the government has issued a recall of all those passports issued from January of 2012 until July of 2014. They were replaced with those which have the place of birth of the holder as well as any previous change of their name. Any passport not returned before the deadline were canceled.
There are some companies offering their assistance for the passport application process to those interested individuals. Use the internet when looking for them and indicate where you are living to have the outcome filtered out. This means the list only shows those that offer this nearby and the ones from the other places are excluded.
You could ask from colleagues, friends and relatives for several suggestions, specifically from those that have acquired their assistance. They would inform you about their experience in acquiring their services and if they were able to help them successfully without any hassled. Knowing this helps in narrowing your list down further in order to make the choice on which one to hire easier.
You can check also the review sites in order for you to know more about these companies coming from the words of other people. These clients they previously had will share their experience of the services provided by writing a review other people may read. Reading them informs you of their thoughts on them.
Inquire how much do they charge for this kind of service. Ask them the necessary documents you must prepare for the application. Inquire about the estimated number of days for the whole process to finish until you receive your new passport.
