Saint Lucia has improved its rank from a Medium Quality to a High Quality Nationality on the second edition of the Henley & Partners – Kochenov (kotch-ee-nov) Quality of Nationality Index (QNI), which was unveiled at a major international event in London today.

The QNI is the first index of its kind to objectively rank the value of every nationality of the world in terms of legal status in which to develop your talents and business.

According to Henley & Partners, the shifts in the High Quality category of the index are most significant and are due mainly to the recent Schengen visa liberalization.

Henley & Partners have invested heavily in the index because of its belief in the countries, as well as its desire to continue to present a positive program across the globe. Attorney-at-Law, Mark D. Maragh has more.

The report also states that as many as 17 nationalities which previously belonged to the Medium Quality tier have improved in value and are now classified as High Quality; St. Lucia being one of those nationalities, rising 22 ranks from 86th to 64th place. This is especially important, as St. Lucia is one of the few islands to host a citizenship-by-investment program (CIP). Head of the CIP in St. Lucia, Nestor Alfred, has referenced this latest global report and St. Lucia’s performance as a clear indication of the future success of the country’s CIP programme,

Among the other nationalities that have risen to the High Quality tier are Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Commonwealth of Dominica, and Trinidad and Tobago.
