Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment
Paradise starts here
Two islands, one heart
Nestled along the eastern shoreline of the Caribbean Sea, the twin island of Antigua and Barbuda is a tourist paradise in every way with lush hills, dense rainforests and a breathtaking coastline. The country gained independence from the UK in 1981 and is currently a member of the United Nations, CARICOM and the British Commonwealth of Nations.
Mainly driven by the tourism industry, which contributes nearly 60% of GDP and 40% of investment, the country's economy is one of the strongest of all Caribbean countries. Antigua is governed by a parliamentary, representative democratic monarchy and follows the model of English Common Law.
