Antigua & Barbuda

The island of Antigua, with its coastline of safe harbors and protective, nearly unbroken wall or coral reef, was the perfect place to hide a fleet. This is how Admiral Horatio Nelson came to establish Great Britain’s most important Caribbean base in 1784. Now, it is those same characteristics that make Antigua and Barbuda one of the Caribbean’s premier tourist destinations.

Unrestricted right to live, work, travel and study anywhere in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

Visa-free travel to over 150 countries and territories including the UK, Schengen area and Hong Kong.

Antigua and Barbuda offers applicants no tax on worldwide income.

The celebrity capital of the Caribbean with beautiful beaches and azure waters.

Antigua & Barbuda’s Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) was passed into law in 2014 as part of the Citizenship by Investment Act. The CIP requires a person to make a significant economic contribution to the country. In exchange, the applicants and their families are granted citizenship.
