The Antigua and Barbuda Government launched the citizenship by investment program in 2013, making it one of the newer Caribbean programs.
To be able to apply for this program you should be at least 18 years of age, in good health, and without a criminal record. Unlike other Caribbean programs, as a future citizen of Antigua and Barbuda, you are required to reside at least 5 days within the first 5 years to retain your citizenship. Within this visit, you and any dependents above 18 years are also required to complete the oath of allegiance ceremony.
Additionally, you are required to make a non-refundable donation to the National Development Fund or make an investment in government-approved real estate projects.

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.
