DOWNLOAD FACTSHEET

Antigua and Barbuda established its citizenship by investment program in 2013. The laws regarding the program are contained in the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Act, 2013 and the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Regulations, 2013.

Following submission of all pertinent documentation, applicants can acquire Antiguan citizenship within as little as three to six months. The process is simple and demands only a modicum of input and time from the applicant. The Antiguan passport offers visa-free access to 140 territories, such as the Schengen states, the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The ABCIP is similar to the Saint Kitts and Nevis CIP in terms of cost, quality and processing time and offers an appealing array of investment options. The procedure is efficient and transparent, and well-suited to those seeking a top-notch citizenship at a relatively low cost and without a long wait.
