Option 2

Purchase of Government-Approved Real Estate


To qualify for citizenship of Antigua & Barbuda under the Real Estate Option of the Citizenship by Investment Program, an applicant must purchase authorized real estate to the minimum value of USD 400,000, which may be resold after 5 years.

Additionally, the applicant must pay the following government fees (Non-Refundable):

  • Family of up to 4 persons: USD 50,000
  • Family of more than 4 persons: USD 50,000 + USD 15,000 for each additional dependent


The most popular option for families has been the donation option. Of course, there are fees and taxes to pay but it remains the most cost-effective Caribbean solution for a full family.


5 Easy Steps


Step 1: Application preparation and pre-approval by Citizenship Bay

Step 2: Submission of the application to the Government of Antigua and Barbuda with 4-6 months for government processing and due diligence

Step 3: Approval Issued: Choose an investment (real estate or NDF)

Step 4: Receive Citizenship certification

Step 5: Apply and receive a passport


Like all other countries, applicants must be of outstanding character, in good health, and with no criminal record. There is no requirement for an interview for the Antigua citizenship program, and in fact, there is no need to travel to the country to complete the application. There is a requirement to reside in Antigua for a minimum period of 5 days during the first five years when the investment must be maintained. Can’t be any simpler.
