⚠️ Antigua and Barbuda Extends Deadline for CBI Price Increase

Following the MoU Agreement, Antigua and Barbuda announced a one-month extension to the deadline for implementing the new minimum investment threshold for its citizenship by investment program.

Antigua and Barbuda will implement the new threshold by July 30, 2024. This extension benefits potential applicants by providing additional time to submit their Caribbean Citizenship applications under the current investment threshold of $100,000.

With the new deadline, we strongly encourage applicants to submit their applications promptly to lock in the current rates and avoid the forthcoming price increase.
