Antigua and Barbuda, one of the most beautiful destinations worldwide, is an independent commonwealth, two-island nation located in the Caribbean. Antigua and Barbuda launched its citizenship by investment program in 2013, and has been operating with the highest repute ever since thanks to its robust due diligence process. Also, the program is highly favored among investors considering its innumerable benefits that include but are not limited to:
- Offshore companies and bank accounts
- Visa-free travel to more than 130 countries including the United Kingdome and Schengen Countries
- Addition of dependent children below the age of 28 and dependent parents above the age of 58.
- Dual Citizenship that can be passed on to future generations by descent
- Access to world-class education and healthcare
- Second Commonwealth Passport within 4 to 6 months
An investor and his family can enjoy those benefits in exchange to a $100,000 donation to the National Development Fund (for a single applicant), or a $400,000 investment in a government-approved real-estate property.
What’s more is that as of the 11th of May 2020, Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) introduced another investment option under the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program; The University of the West Indies Fund option. This option requires investors to invest $150,000* inclusive of processing fees for a family of six members (which is the minimum number of persons). *Customary due diligence and other fees are payable.
Once investment is made, one family member will be entitled to a one-year scholarship at the University of the West Indies which ranks among the top 5 percent of universities worldwide. This is a great option for investors who are looking for a culturally immersive experience and are interested in studying abroad while still enjoying the many other benefits a second passport has to offer them.
The University of the West Indies Investment Option and its features take immediate effect.
