  1. Is it just me who do not find any merit in the visit. You are coming for US citizens. I am trying to wonder how many US citizens live in SLU and require a passport. Most and if not all are in the states – Why are you coming to SLU. Those who might be in slu are retirees and I am sure their passwords are up to day.

  2. Why some Saint Lucians so stupid. There are people living in Saint lucia who hold dual citizenship. That’s why the consulate is coming to provide service for its citizens (USA) citizens. Smh

  3. Alot of us carry US passports. Not all of us reside in the US contrary to popular beliefs. Some of us may have been birthed abroad by Saint Lucian nationals who returned home. Some of us were married and divorced abroad and probably remarried in Saint Lucia. There are many Saint Lucians locally who carry dual citizenship whether US, Great Britain or Canadian.

  4. I have travel not bad many coutries by air and in dreams, but I have never seen no such lovely paradise as ❤️🇱🇨 St-Lucia, which will be a refuge for many,regardless of the other nations riches, but are not in safety and there is no such country better than the other !!
    Good Luck and best wishes to all those who want to play to win ❗
    As for me,I am too afraid of the LORD,move by the Sprit of God,if he don’t send me and not his will,I will not go even if it was free !!

    For this is what the LORD says
    “To the enuchs who keep law, who choose what pleases me and hold fast my covenant :
    I am with you and will save you,declares the LORD !
    I will surely save you out of a distant place ;no one will make you afraid ;I have put watchman over you and my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand.
    ‘I will break the yoke of their neck and tear their bonds.
    Instead they will serve the LORD their God and their king,whom I will raised up for them.

    And let not any eunchs complain ; for I am only a dry tree”.
    Listen to me you islands ;hear this, you distant nations,
    Seek the LORD while he may be found,call on his name while he is near ‼️
