By: (SKNIS), Press Release

    Basseterre, St. Kitts, May 14, 2019 (SKNIS)—The Cabinet of the Government of National Unity considered several submissions, one of which is the policy regarding the number of years an individual can be married before citizenship can be granted.


    The Cabinet researched this in conjunction with the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs and concluded that there is no legal requirement to prevent persons from obtaining citizenship by marriage except for any unwritten policy which seems to be at variance with the law. As of the 13th May 2019, the Cabinet has approved that the Ministry of National Security will process application for citizenship by marriage on requests subject to the relevant legal documentation being provided.
    El Gabinete del Gobierno de Unidad Nacional ha examinado varias presentaciones, una de ellas es la política relativa al número de años y de personas que pueden casarse antes de que se pueda conceder la ciudadanía

    El Gabinete investigo esta cuestión junto con el Ministerio de Justicia y Asuntos Jurídicos y llegó a la conclusión de que no existe ningún requisito jurídico a impedir que una persona obtenga la ciudadanía mediante matrimonio, salvo en el caso de una política escrita que parezca estar en contradicción con la ley. A partir del 13 de mayo de 2019, el gabinete ha aprobado que el Ministerio de seguridad nacional tramitara la solicitud de cuidadania de matrimonio previa solicitud, con sujeción a la documentación jurídica pertinente que se presente.
