Visa Fraud Warning

The Ministry of National Security alerts the public of a fraudulent visa approval letter being sent to persons desirous of entering the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. The scammers behind this fraudulent letter are posing as officials from the Immigration and Passport Office and attempting to extract payment from recipients of the letter.

The Ministry of National Security takes St. Kitts and Nevis’s passport and visa fraud very seriously and will work with its National Security counterparts in other territories to end fraudulent practices.

How to apply for a St. Kitts and Nevis visa:

  • Applying for a St. Kitts and Nevis visa is done completely online. Persons should visit to access the application process.
  • Once the online application has been submitted with the required information, the applicant will receive an email confirming that the application has been received.
  •  It takes about 7-10 days to process the application. If additional information is needed by the Ministry of National Security, the individual or host is contacted.
