Antigua & Barbuda

About

Being an independent Commonwealth state, Antigua and Barbuda is the 9th largest country in the Eastern Caribbean. Thousands of visitors are drawn to Antigua & Barbuda by the sun drenched, white sand beaches and mesmerizing, crystal blue waters. Both islands are home to tropical rainforests, and luxurious resorts. A diver’s paradise, the islands are rimmed by shoals and reefs that teem with exotic ocean life, some of which can be found only in this area.

The Antigua and Barbuda Economic Citizenship Program was first established in 2012 offering wealthy UHNWI the opportunity to legally acquire a second passport.
