St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): In a release from the Ministry of National Security, an alert was issued to the public about a fraudulent visa approval letter being sent to persons desirous of entering the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis by posing as representatives from the Immigration and Passport Office and attempting to extract payment from recipients of the letter.
The Ministry further stipulated how to legitimately apply for a visa:
The process is done completely online via evisa.stkittsnevisonline.com and it takes 7-10 days to process the application.
An email would be sent confirming that the application has been received. The Ministry of National Security would make contact if additional information is needed.
If the application is approved, a confirmation travel letter is sent via email to the applicant in the form of an Electronic Entry Visa (EEV) which does not guarantee entry into the country.
The processing fee is payable to the Immigration Department upon arrival in St. Kitts and Nevis and through no other channel currently.
