Antigua and Barbuda Programme

  • With hundreds of beaches, year-round sunshine, and some of the most welcoming people you could wish to meet, Antigua and Barbuda is heaven on earth. You can make this popular holiday location the home of your dreams by applying to the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment programme. Established in 2013, the scheme grants you citizenship in exchange for an economic donation to this celestial Caribbean country.

Benefits of Antigua and Barbuda citizenship

  • In addition to receiving an Antigua and Barbuda passport, the country’s Citizenship by Investment programme offers the following benefits:

  • Citizenship for life, with the right to live and work in the country
  • Entitlement to dual citizenship
  • Ability to pass on citizenship to future generations
  • Visa-free travel to around 150 countries and territories

Citizenship by Investment Options

  • Please note that due diligence and government processing fees also apply to all Antigua and Barbuda citizenship by investment options.

Option 01 The National Development Fund

  • The non-profit National Development Fund finances government projects, public-private partnerships, and other charitable investments in Antigua and Barbuda. Applicants must contribute a set amount to the fund according to the number of dependents they have.

  • Main applicant USD 100,000
  • Family of up to four members USD 100,000
  • Family of five members or more USD 125,000

Option 02 Real Estate

  • Qualifying real estate projects must be approved by The Cabinet upon receiving a recommendation from the Antigua and Barbuda Investment Authority (ABIA). Applicants must commit to holding the real estate for at least five years and can invest individually or with a partner.

Option 03 Business Investment

  • You may instead choose to invest in a business that has been pre-approved by The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda. Again, this can be done individually or with a partner.
