Visa to St. Kitts and Nevis
St. Kitts and Nevis is a small island nation in the Eastern Caribbean. Most foreign nationals require a visa to enter the country. Exceptions are citizens of CARICOM countries, USA, Canada, UK and some other countries - they can stay in St. Kitts and Nevis without a visa for a limited period of time (up to 30 or 90 days). Longer or permanent stays will require an appropriate residence permit.
The main types of St. Kitts and Nevis visas include an electronic visa (eVisa), which can be applied for online, or a visa on arrival at an international airport. Citizens of approximately 125 countries require a tourist visa to visit St. Kitts and Nevis. However, the most convenient way to apply is to use the electronic visa system (eVisa), known as the St. Kitts and Nevis Electronic Entry Visa (EEV). This allows travelers to avoid a trip to the embassy, as they can fill out an online form without leaving their home. The list of countries whose citizens are eligible to apply for an e-visa can be found on the relevant webpage.
However, for foreign nationals wishing to move to and/or work in the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis, the appropriate visas and permits are required and can only be obtained through the St. Kitts and Nevis embassy or consulate. There are approximately 45 countries whose nationals must obtain any type of visa from an embassy, including short-term tourist visas. St. Kitts and Nevis embassy and consular visas tend to take longer to process than EEV e-visas, so early application is recommended.

Types of visas:
Issued for a period of 6 months. These are multiple-entry visas that can be used more than once. They allow you to stay in the Caribbean regions for up to 90 days within a 180-day period. They also allow you to travel between the Dutch Caribbean islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Sint Maarten). Short-term Caribbean visas do not authorize you to visit the European part of the Netherlands or any Schengen country.
If you plan to stay in Aruba, Curaçao or other Caribbean regions of the Kingdom for more than 90 days, you will almost always need a residence permit. A long-term visa may be required to obtain a residence permit.
