Joining Dominica and Grenada, President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China and Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda took steps toward bolstering their country’s long-standing bilateral ties by inking a landmark visa exemption agreement on 24 January 2024.
As the first Eastern Caribbean country to sign a memorandum of understanding on Belt and Road cooperation with China, this visa exemption agreement reflects Antigua and Barbuda’s forward-thinking strategy to enhance ease of travel and establish new business opportunities for its citizens.
According to the Global Passport Index by Global Citizens Solutions, the Antigua and Barbuda passport ranks 59th globally, boasting an already impressive 150 visa-free countries accessible to Antigua and Barbudan passport holders. China’s inclusion in the visa-free countries list further solidifies the passport’s standing as a valuable asset for international travel, offering Antigua and Barbuda passport holders enhanced access to one of the world’s largest economies.
The broadened scope of tourism and business travel resulting from this visa exemption is poised to yield mutual benefits in various sectors, including trade, investment, and cultural exchange. As an Authorized Agent of Antigua and Barbuda’s citizenship by investment program, Global Citizen Solutions is well-positioned to aid investors in maximizing the benefits of obtaining citizenship in this rapidly progressing country.
