Antigua & Barbuda’s passport is ranked as the 31st strongest passport in the world.
You and your family will obtain an irrevocable second passport and dual citizenship without having to move away or renounce your current nationality. The law of the Citizenship-by-Investment and Second Program of Antigua and Barbuda was established in 2013. The passport is internationally recognized and includes all Schengen countries. Dual citizenship or second passport is obtained in an approximate period of 3 months.
The program is based on the statute which means the granted citizenship and passport may not be revoked regardless of changes in the governmental executives or policy. Antigua and Barbuda is part of the Commonwealth since 1981 and its official business language is English.
