There are a range of existing businesses that are already approved under the program and these can be found on the government's official page. A new business can also be incorporated and apply for approval under the program. An applicant would either invest a minimum of $1.5 million if investing as a sole investor, or $400,000 if investing in an approved business with a collective multiple investment value of over $5 million. The government processing fees would apply, as would all the standard due-diligence checks.
What kind of business investments qualify for a citizenship-by-investment application in Antigua and Barbuda?
I have heard that individuals who invest at least $1.5 million U.S. dollars in a business can obtain citizenship. How does this work? What about requirements for multiple investors? Can any type of business qualify, or does it have to be certain fields?
Any type of business can qualify. However, it must be pre-approved by the citizenship-by-investment process. Each business goes through the process of applying for approval. The business can be new or existing. An individual investor must invest $1.5 million. For consortium investors, each must invest at least $400,000 and the total combined investment must exceed $5 million. There is a limited-time offer in place whereby two applicants together can jointly invest at least $200,000 each to get to the $400,000 minimum.
