Are some nationalities excluded from Caribbean citizenship by investment programmes?
All applicants for citizenship by investment
must undergo stringent due diligence checks. Where such checks cannot be completed because of instability in an applicant’s country of origin or because of an uncooperating or unreliable government, Caribbean countries bar applications altogether.
In Antigua and Barbuda
, for example, citizens of Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Russia and Belarus are restricted from applying to the programme unless they migrated before the age of majority or they have maintained permanent residence outside of a restricted country for 10 or more years and maintain no economic ties to the country.
