Citizens International was created in 2011 by Brian Dobbin, a Canadian entrepreneur and investor who has significant experience with the international second citizenship industry through the Canadian and Caribbean citizenship investment programs.
Recognizing the emergence and growth of ‘global citizens’- individuals whom had residency and/or passports in several countries – Citizens International was imagined as a company offering professional expertise and services in the Eastern Caribbean to those global clients whom recognize the value of a second citizenship in the region, and wish to diversify their investment portfolio.
We believe strongly in the quality of opportunity for immigrant investors offered in the Caribbean, and present specific and sound investment products qualified under the respective programs to our international client networks.
Citizens International has a long-standing history of commitment to the islands. Our team has deep connections in the region and offers unparalleled on-the-ground expertise wrapping international expertise around Caribbean investment opportunities and bespoke concierge services.

Citizenship Investment Applications
The senior executives based in Antigua, oversee the Citizens International platform to assure the client’s service level is met throughout the investment and naturalization process.
