Get in Touch with NAME

The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP), was established by the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Regulations in 2014 and amended in 2016. It allows individuals and their families to obtain a Citizenship of the country after making an investment and passing due diligence tests.

Why Antigua and Barbuda?


Located in the heart of the Caribbean, the islands of Antigua and Barbuda are around a thousand miles to the east of Jamaica and 500 miles from Trinidad, on the coast of South America. The history of Antigua dates back to about 30 million years ago. These islands are renowned for their reef beaches, crystal clear waters and resorts.

Having more than 365 beaches – one for each day- Antigua and Barbuda are very popular tourist destinations and these beaches and resorts are the key driver of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), generating around 60% of the island’s income, with key target markets being the U.S., Canada and Europe. Due to deepwater harbours, these islands are a yachting-hub and thus, became popular destinations for high profiles, the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Eric Clapton and Oprah Winfrey.

Antigua and Barbuda is a member of the United Nations, the British Commonwealth, Caricom, and the Organisation of American States (OAS), among many other international organisations.

Why should you get an Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship?


This program requires individuals to make an economic contribution to the country, and in exchange, the applicants and their families are granted citizenship after passing a due diligence process. There is a minimum residence requirement of 5 days on the island. 

An Antigua and Barbuda passport gives its holder visa-free access to near 150 countries, including the Schengen Area and the UK.

I have been using CSB Group in Malta to register our company and our ship under the Malta flag, and have always been completely satisfied with their performance. They do an excellent job, are always punctual, and offer the most competitive rates in Europe! A young and Smart team! We have also involved them on occasion for extra legal jobs, and recently I am using their accounting service to fulfil the VAT requirement and to complete our balance sheets. I'm happy to recommend the services of CSB Group.

We chose Malta as our new permanent home and CSB Group to help us through the residency process. They went way beyond our expectations treating our application as if it were their own. Their service was nothing short of stellar from understanding our needs preparation of the required documentation, and follow-up phase during a period with the sharpest movement restrictions. Malta deserves a place on every investor’s radar, mostly because of the surprising efficiency permeating the place, efficiency which starts with CSB.
