What are the requirements for The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program:

There are three ways of being eligible for the program:

  1. Investment in National Development Fund:
    With a donation of US $100,000 in the NDF, or US $ 125,000 for a family of five and above, an investor can get citizenship in Antigua and Barbuda.Citizenship can be obtained for the investor, his or her spouse, any dependent children, siblings, and dependent parents over the age of 65 with such an investment with no further financial requirements.
  2. Investment in Real Estate
    Another way to become a citizen of Antigua and Barbuda is to invest a minimum of US $400,000 in the country’s real estate market. Only legally permitted real estate may be used for such an investment. A combined investment can also be made, for example with two candidates investing at least $200,000 each. For a period of five years, the applicant cannot sell or dispose of the property purchased under this option. This is only possible if the applicant purchases a government-approved alternative real estate property that fits the government’s investment criteria for obtaining citizenship by investment in Antigua and Barbuda.
  3. Investment in Business
    Citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda can also be obtained by investing in a firm certified by the Citizenship by Investment Unit. This option is available to investors in two ways:

    • Make a minimum investment of $1,500,000 in a business that has been approved.
      Make a joint investment application with one or more people in a firm that has been authorized, with a total minimum investment of $5 million. Each candidate should commit at least $400,000 to such an investment.

For any of the following alternatives, the investor must get an application form from a locally approved agent who is licenced by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda’s Citizenship by Investment Unit.
