Interest growing in Antigua & Barbuda citizenship program


With applications surging at an average growth rate of 14.3% between 2013 and 2023, Antigua & Barbuda's Citizenship by Investment program (CIP) is slated to see a significant increase in application numbers in 2024, as per reports released by experts at Dubai-headquartered citizenship and residency by investment, Savory & Partners.

Since its launch in 2013, Antigua & Barbuda's CIP has been known for its simplicity, accessibility, and remarkable value proposition. At the core of the program are its diverse investment routes, from National Development Fund (NDF) or the University of West Indies Fund (UWF) to real estate investments and business establishments.

Experts highlight Antigua & Barbuda's CIP for its significant benefits and positive trajectory, proven by ongoing development within the Unit overseeing the program. This includes modifications in the application process, making the journey to obtaining an Antigua & Barbuda's passport increasingly smooth. In addition to last year's changes, including the introduction of mandatory interviews, a complete overhaul of the application process is expected soon, as per the CEO of the Unit.

Recent diplomatic initiatives, such as the signing of ten memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with top Chinese officials, further enhance the global mobility of Antiguan citizens, framing the country's position as a strategic hub for international cooperation and connectivity.

Looking to the future, one potential development on the horizon is the possibility of a price hike in Antigua & Barbuda's CIP, mirroring similar adjustments in neighboring Caribbean nations. While no official statement has been released, advisors urge investors to seize the opportunity presented by the program's current favorable terms before any changes take effect.
