Can I transfer my property used for my St. Kitts citizenship application and maintain my citizenship?

I want to become a St. Kitts and Nevis citizen by buying the required real estate. However, I don’t want to hold on to it for the entire five-year period that’s required. Can I transfer the property to my son, who is my dependent and will also be a St. Kitts citizen? What if my property stays in my family?

    The law requires you hold the property for a minimum of five years and then you can resell and keep your citizenship, but not before.

    I believe that this would be allowable on a case-by-case basis, depending on the reasons.

    Please be advised that the property would have to be held for the period of five or seven years before it can be transferred to a family member or even sold.
