Antigua and Barbuda is a luxurious twin island country that is located in the Eastern Caribbean Sea and is a part of the British Commonwealth. This beautiful country offers investors the opportunity to receive a second citizenship allowing freedom of movement to more than 100 countries worldwide including Canada, the UK, and the Schengen region.
Investors are able to obtain a second passport in an inexpensive (compared to other Citizenship by Investment programs) and quick way through the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP). This program is appealing to investors seeking to expand their businesses and benefit from a country with one of the lowest tax rates. Although Antigua & Barbuda is a beautiful place to live, the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program does not necessarily require that the investor and his/her immediate family reside in the country in order to obtain the Antigua and Barbuda citizenship.
The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) offers three investment options from which investors can choose according to what best suits them. In return, the investors and their immediate families, including dependent parents if applicable, can receive a second passport directly.
The three investment options are the National Development Fund (NDF)/Charitable Donation, Real Estate Investment, and Business Investment option.
In order to qualify for the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP), the applicant must be 18 years old or over with no criminal background; must complete and pass a due diligence examination; complete a health examination; conduct a short visit in Antigua and Barbuda for a minimum of 5 days within the period of 5 years prior to being granted Antigua and Barbuda citizenship status; make an approved investment; and lastly, the investor must not have previously been denied entry into countries that Antigua and Barbuda has visa-free travel with.
