Glocal Opportunities proudly introduces the Antigua Citizenship by Investment Program, which was developed and overseen under a government mandate. This program provides a compelling avenue for individuals interested in obtaining Antiguan citizenship through acquiring desirable properties or contributing to the nation's National Development Fund.

Nestled in the Eastern Caribbean, Antigua stands proudly as an independent Commonwealth state, celebrated for its breathtaking beauty showcased through 365 pristine beaches adorned with turquoise waters. The thriving tourism industry takes center stage, contributing around 60% of the nation's income and drawing visitors from key markets such as Canada, Europe, and the USA.

In an effort to bolster its economy further, Antigua introduced a citizenship by investment program, wherein our company played a pivotal role, providing crucial advice and assistance in its design, implementation, and international outreach.

Adding to its commitment to growth, Antigua is currently undertaking a substantial airport expansion project, investing USD 45 million to enhance passenger convenience with the incorporation of three passenger jet bridges and over two dozen check-in counters. This expansion is poised to increase scheduled, charter, and inter-island flights, providing more opportunities for travel to the island.

Antigua, with its Eastern Caribbean dollar pegged to the USD at 2.70, holds membership in esteemed international organizations, including the British Commonwealth, CARICOM, the Organisation of American States, and the United Nations. However, as with other Caribbean countries, holders of an Antiguan passport require a visa to enter the USA, as the nation is not part of the USA Visa Waiver Program.

Applicants have the option to include various family members, such as a spouse, dependent children under 31 (including their spouse and children), parents, grandparents aged 55 and over, and unmarried siblings of the main applicant and/or their spouse, regardless of age. Moreover, Antigua is a member of the Commonwealth, granting its citizens certain privileges in the UK and other member states. The nation also offers an attractive environment for residency or owning a second home, benefiting from excellent air connectivity to North America and Europe.
