ABOUT ANTIGUA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT
Why Antigua & Barbuda?
The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program is one of the top rated options for obtaining new citizenship and a second passport.
The Citizenship by Investment Program was established following parliamentary approval and can be found in Section 6 of the Citizenship by Investment Act, 2013 (Act No. 2 of 2013). The Act was amended in 2014, and is compounded by the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Regulations.
The Citizenship by Investment Program requires a person to make a stipulated economic contribution to the Country through either a donation to the National Development Fund (NDF) or in a Government approved real estate project. In exchange, and subject to stringent application procedures, including thorough background checks, the applicants and their families are granted citizenship.
