Important factors to consider in residence planning
In 2009, the Antigua and Barbuda government signed a visa waiver agreement with the EU that allows an Antigua and Barbuda citizen to visit any of the Europe’s Schengen Area countries without a visa for a period of three months within any six-month period following the date of first entry into any EU country.
The Antigua and Barbuda passport is an ideal travel document for many international individuals. With an Antigua and Barbuda passport, a citizen can travel to 149 destinations in the world, including Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK, and Europe’s Schengen Area without challenging visa requirements.
Full citizenship, with passports, is granted to the applicant and their family, and there are no restrictions whatsoever, not even on voting, subject to meeting the standard voter registration criteria. Antigua and Barbuda is a member of the Commonwealth, which entitles Antigua and Barbuda citizens to certain privileges in the UK and other Commonwealth countries.
