Antigua and Barbuda
Antigua and Barbuda’s citizenship by investment program is one of the newest in the Caribbean. It was launched in 2013.
Cosmopolitans can get a passport with investments of at least $100,000. There are four options: contributions to a state or university fund, real estate purchase or business investments.
Family members can obtain citizenship with the investor. The program allows the main applicant’s spouse, children, parents and siblings to participate.
The property purchased to participate in the citizenship program can be sold five years later in return for money. Investors can also earn rental income during ownership.
Antigua and Barbuda offer special investment options to families of six or more. They can contribute $150,000+ to the University of the West Indies Fund. Thus, a large family spends less than any other Caribbean CBI program. One family member can enroll in the university and study for a year free of charge.
- Visa-free travel to the Schengen Area and the UK
The Antigua and Barbuda passport equals a Schengen visa, allowing cosmopolitans to enter the Schengen countries and stay in the region for up to 90 out of 180 days. Investors can also stay in the UK for up to 180 days a year. The complete list of visa-free destinations includes 151 countries.
- 10-year US tourist visas
Antigua and Barbuda citizens can get a 10-year B-1/B-2 tourist visa to the USA. The visa allows the holder to spend up to 180 days a year in the United States: travel, attend conferences, hold business meetings, and receive medical treatment at US clinics.
- “Safe haven” abroad
