If greater mobility, unique and better value investment options, safety, and alternate citizenship are what you seek, then Antigua and Barbuda’s Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) is the programme of choice for you. Already proving more popular in the global investment migration industry, this programme has responded to demand with more efficient processing, a common sense approach to the application process, and more competitive offerings.
Antigua and Barbuda’s CIP continues to demonstrate its responsiveness to market needs by streamlining the application processing framework to ensure seamless client services delivery even as physical lockdown was imposed on global businesses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am excited to share with IFC Media that the CIU remained open for business to serve investors as they explored safer and more viable alternatives in a very uncertain period. The dedicated team of professionals at the CIU continues to diligently process applications, completing them in as little as six weeks. Furthermore, keen attention continues to be placed on the investment offerings to maintain their attractiveness and continued alignment with the ever evolving needs of the market.
Why The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship By Investment Programme?
In addition to visa-free travel, eligible investors have the right to reside permanently on the two islands which comprise this beautiful gem of the Caribbean. The recent elimination of personal income tax makes it even more attractive.
What Are The Available Investment Options?
Applicants must be 18 years or older and may include their dependant, spouse, children, parent, in-laws and grandparents in the application using any of the four available investment options.
Option 1 - National Development Fund
Option 2 - Investment in Approved Real Estate
Option 3 - Investment in an Approved Business
Where a person proposes to make an investment in an approved business, two thresholds apply:
Option 4 - University of the West Indies Fund
