Hiring in St Kitts and Nevis

Located in the Leeward Islands chain in the Caribbean, the former British colony of St Kitts and neighbouring island Nevis are known for colourful carnivals, international cricketers and beautiful landscape and beaches.

The economy of St Kitts and Nevis is characterised by tourism, agriculture, and light manufacturing industries, with electronics and related products contributing the majority of exports.

One element of St Kitts and Nevis’ economy is its extensive economic citizenship by investment programme.

This allows foreign investors to gain citizenship in St Kitts and Nevis, which has relaxed financial regulation laws, limited cooperation with other nations and low taxes. This has led to a reputation as being both a tax haven and a potential destination for tax evasion or money laundering.

Hiring in St Kitts and Nevis is still fairly informal, but workers are protected by employment laws and industry regulation. Pay parity remains relatively low and processes to invest and hire can be cumbersome, making an international payroll provider a good option.
