The firm ranked the St. Lucian passport 36th in the world according to the amount of countries that a passport holder has access to without requiring a visa.
This ranking puts St. Lucia above fellow Caribbean country Grenada which is ranked 37th and is just below St. Kitts and Nevis and Antigua and Barbuda who are both ranked 30th.
Henley & Partner in 2016 issued scathing criticisms of St. Lucia’s CIP program.
The SLP, which was the party in power during its implementation, responded to the criticisms stating that they were politically motivated.
Henley & Partner at the time had ranked St. Lucia’s CIP at the second to last position with only Dominica’s program being ranked lower.
