Antigua & Barbuda Citizenship-by-Investment

Antigua and Barbuda

The Antigua & Barbuda Citizenship-by-Investment Program was at the forefront of Investment Migration having been in existence since 2012. Passports can be granted in as little as 3 months and afford holders the ability to access more than 150 Countries Visa-Free. Antigua & Barbuda is the most cost-effective application when applying as a family and allows a family of up to 4 applicants to gain Citizenship for as little as USD 130,000. The required Donation or Investment would only need to be concluded once applicants and their families receive approval in principle.

Benefits

  • Fast Processing and application times (3-4 months)
  • Most cost-effective family application
  • Visa-Free Travel to more than 150 Countries
  • The entire family is eligible including spouse, children, parents, and grandparents
  • No tax on income, wealth, or inheritance.
  • No physical residence requirements

Requirements

Option 1: Government Donation (National Development Fund)

USD 100,000 along with a Government Processing Fee of USD 30,000 for a single applicant including up to 4 family dependents this is a Donation geared towards the Antigua & Barbuda NDF. For a family of 5 the required NDF fee increases to USD 145,000. For a family of 6, the donation would be USD 150,000 geared towards the UWI Antigua & Barbuda Fund with an additional USD 15,000 for each family dependent after over 6.

Option 2: Real Estate Investment

Applicants can qualify when purchasing Government Approved real estate. The minimum threshold for a single applicant is USD 400,000. The investment needs to be maintained for a minimum period of 5-years and can then be sold on; this can also be sold to a new Citizenship-by-Investment applicant making the exit strategy far easier.

Two single applicants also have the option to each invest USD 200,000 into a Government Approved real estate purchase, this would essentially be in the form of a shared title. This would allow both main applicants to access Citizenship for themselves and their chosen dependents. The required investment must again be held for a minimum period of 5-years and can be sold to a new CBI applicant.
