“This is part of the St. Kitts and Nevis government’s on-going initiative to increase the number of countries to which its citizens have visa-free access.

In 2008, the Federation signed a short-term visa waiver agreement which allows persons with a valid St Kitts and Nevis passport to travel to any Schengen country without needing a visa and holders of valid passports from the EU to travel to St. Kitts and Nevis without a visa.
The Schengen countries are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
