The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has announced a number of amendments to its Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP). This ensures it remains one of the top options in the Caribbean. The most noteworthy change is that you or your spouse can now add an unmarried sibling to the application.
The amendments focus on expanding the definition of dependants, specifically:
Previously adult children needed to be enrolled full time in post-secondary school but this requirement has been reduced to only needing to be financially dependent. This new definition aligns with Grenada CIP’s definition of an adult child dependant which is the most flexible in the Caribbean.
In addition to the expansion of the definition of dependants, Antigua and Barbuda has also reduced the fees to add a future spouse or child as follows:
A fee of US $10,000 applies for children under 5 years of age and US $20,000 for children between 6 and 17 years of age.
The Antigua and Barbuda CIP has always been an attractive CIP for discerning private clients and these enhancements will only further solidify it as a top option for families looking to add a second citizenship.
