St.Lucia

St. Lucia is an island nation located in the Eastern Caribbean Sea and part of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles. St. Lucia is a member of the United Nations, The Commonwealth of Nations, Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and The Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The country is home to the beautiful volcanic Piton mountains and is more mountainous than most other Caribbean islands. The nation is also largely covered in forest (about 77%) and has smaller islands off its coast, notably the Maria Islands, home to a nature reserve. St. Lucia is the newest Caribbean country within the Citizenship By Investment program and passports can be issued in only 3-4 months.
