About Antigua and Barbuda
Antigua and Barbuda is an idyllic island nation that is popular among tourists for its sandy beaches and cerulean blue waters. Having gained its independence in 1984, this humble nation to this day remains a part of the Commonwealth. The country is also an independent member of several international associations such as the OAS, UN, CARICOM, WTO and IMF. An Antigua passport holder can gain visa-free entry to as many as 149 countries. In early 2013, the country brought forth a Citizenship by Investment program; a foreign national can now acquire an Antigua citizenship by making a sizeable investment towards the improvement of the island’s infrastructure. It has become the preferred route to acquiring a citizenship in the country as it does not require the applicant to reside in the country physically. In order to be eligible for this program, an investor needs to make a minimum investment of 125,000$. At Passport Legacy, we aim to help investors attain an Antigua citizenship by investment from Dubai.
