Antigua and Barbuda citizenship is now fully remote

Note that the procedure of obtaining investment citizenship (taking an oath) does not require visiting the Caribbean. Applicants and their family may visit one of the 15 representative offices of Antigua around the world, for example, in Moscow, Istanbul, Madrid and London.

In 2020, due to the pandemic, the founders of the Antigua investment citizenship program decided to temporarily abolish the stay requirement. Such an amendment will be valid for another year, until August 31, 2021. Previously, it was necessary to attend the country for at least 5 days after obtaining Antigua and Barbuda citizenship in the first 5 years.

The top industries for business opportunity in Antigua and Barbuda are tourism and financial services. These two alone account for over 75% of Antigua and Barbuda’s economy, with tourism making up over half of the country’s GDP.

Financial services provided by largely Canadian and British banks contribute to the largest portion of the country’s financial sector. Antigua and Barbuda citizenship organizations have over twenty years of experience dealing with offshore banking, insurance, internet gaming and international business corporations (IBCs).

Primary education in Antigua and Barbuda is free and mandatory for children from 5 to 12 years old. Then, students apply for secondary school where they’re required to go to school until 17.

Higher education includes three small universities in the country: The University of Health Sciences, Antigua State College and the American University of Antigua.

The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment program has brought foreign interest into owning a home on the island, bringing the real estate and housing prices to a similar level as those in America or much of Europe. A two-bedroom house averages about $350,000, while a 3-bedroom could run up to $600,000.

Government health expenditure in Antigua and Barbuda is 4% of GDP, which is pretty low compared to other countries. However, healthcare services are available to citizens at over twenty-six community health clinics, including one main public hospital. Since these aren’t big university hospitals, those who need a complex surgery or treatment may need to go overseas to another country.
