What Second Passport Means to Middle East Nationals

What Second Passport Means to Middle East Nationals
With today's climate of unrest in the Middle East and around the Arab world, many wealthy Middle East Nationals are turning to a Second Passport (Second Citizenship) and European Residency to protect their families' futures. Visa restrictions for many Arab passport holders have also proven to be a major cause for those applying for a Second Passport (Second Citizenship).This freedom to travel has driven many Arab nationals to seek Dual Citizenship in three months without emigrating from their home country.

Dual Citizenship is considered a global insurance policy for high net worth individuals. Not only does attaining citizenship status on the beautiful twin-islands of Antigua and Barbuda mean investors may reside or travel to Antigua and Barbuda as they wish, but along with the second passport (Second Citizenship), investors are exposed to many more beneficial aspects, including visa-free travel to over 100 countries. This is the only Caribbean Second Passport (Second Citizenship) program to offer visa-free travel to Canada. Also, a Second passport (Second Citizenship) will introduce new business ventures globally and grant families access to state-of-the-art healthcare and education.

Most importantly, this means that the program is particularly ideal for interested individuals that wish to lead a more stable, comfortable life and be globally flexible, while there may be political unrest or instability in some countries of the Middle East and North Africa region.

What is the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP)? 

The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) was formed following the parliamentary authorization to the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Regulations 2014. The highly reputable Antigua & Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program is considered one of the most accessible Second Passport (Second Citizenship) programs.

The government’s adoption of the Citizenship by Investment Program allows the promotion of economic growth and development, as well as grants citizenship status to the investor and immediate family on the twin-island state of Antigua and Barbuda.

How will the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) benefit me as a Middle East National?
  • The investor along with immediate family will be admitted to citizenship in the independent British Commonwealth State of Antigua and Barbuda in the Eastern Caribbean;
