In an 11 June 1998 telephone interview with the Research Directorate, the Vice-Counsel at the Embassy of Saint Lucia in Washington DC stated that the country has recognized dual citizenship with all countries since its independence in 1979.
Attempts to obtain a copy of the Saint Lucian Citizenship Act from the Embassy of Saint Lucia in Washington and the High Commission for the Countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States in Ottawa were unsuccessful within the time constraints of this Response to Information Request.
This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
