Citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica or the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis also enjoy visa free entrance to the countries that are members of Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). Both citizenship options usually attract people who would like to live and work or retire in the Caribbean. The OECS is based on the principles of the European Union. The OECS members are - St. Lucia, Dominica, Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, St.Vincent & the Grenadines and Grenada. They have the same currency - Eastern Caribbean Dollar, viewed as the most stable currency in the Caribbean region. Work permits are not required if you are a citizen of any of these countries and wish to work in any of these islands. Identity cards can be used in place of passports when traveling between these states. Some of these countries are also offshore tax havens.
