Antigua and Barbuda’s Passport Ranking Rises to 27th Most Powerful Globally.
Citizens International is thrilled to announce a significant achievement for Antigua and Barbuda – our nation’s passport has ascended to the 27th most powerful globally in the 2024 Henley Passport Index. This remarkable climb from the 31st position in 2023 underscores the growing recognition and value of Antigua and Barbuda’s citizenship.
Visa-Free Access to 153 Countries
This ascent in ranking reflects the robustness of the Antiguan passport, which now boasts visa-free access to 153 countries, including major destinations like the Schengen countries, Canada, the UK, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Additionally, Antigua and Barbuda citizens benefit from a 10-year visitor visa to the USA, allowing for extended stays of up to 180 days per year for various purposes, including travel, family visits, medical treatment, or conference attendance.
Benefits of Investing in Antigua & Barbuda
Antigua and Barbuda, an idyllic island nation in the Caribbean, offers more than just picturesque beaches and a warm tropical climate. It presents a unique opportunity for individuals seeking a second citizenship through its Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program. Since 2013, this program has enabled those eligible to gain citizenship by donating to national development or investing in real estate or business ventures, with options starting at $100,000.
Investing in Antigua and Barbuda not only opens the door to a powerful passport but also offers significant tax advantages, making it an attractive destination for asset protection and securing your family’s future. If interested in purchasing a second home in the country, citizenship becomes a no-brainer as the non-citizen tax will be lifted on home purchase and future resell.
