Citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda. Special requirements in 2024

The requirement to visit Antigua for at least 5 days within a 5-year period is back in effect from 1 July 2023

Not every Caribbean citizenship program will ask investors to really visit the island. But Antigua does. Five-day residence requirement reinstated. That would be very important for reissuing a passport after 5 years but then every family member will get a 10-year valid passport. Note that Antigua now upgraded all passports to biometric passports.

Here are the situations in which the visit requirement may not be met: if the applicant has reached the age of 80 years at the time of receipt of the passport or 5 years after; illness or disability; renewal of a passport received from June 30 to July 20, 2023.

Mandatory interviews for all applicants 16 years of age or over. At a cost of US$1,500 per application

As every Caribbean CIP started to interview applicants since 2024, APEX gained an expertise in scheduling and preparing candidates to pass one. You may be sure that everything will be taken into account. Each interview is planned and managed using the customary process which is in place for virtual Oaths.
