Antigua Government Reduce Application Fees

August 24th, 2017   •   Comments Off on Antigua Government Reduce Application Fees   

The Government of Antigua and Barbuda have recently reviewed and reduced the application fees for the Citizenship by Investment programme. The hugely popular Caribbean programme will now cost a family of four around $50,000 less in Government application fees than it would previously have cost.

Prior to the recent amendments the Government’s fees were set at $50,000 for the main applicant, $50,000 for a spouse and an additional $25,000 per each child, bringing the government fees for a family of four to $100,000.  Now set at just half this cost there will be a flat fee of $50,000 for a family of four opting for the Real Estate investment. For larger families, additional dependants can be included for an added fee of $15,000 per person.

Those opting for the donation to the National Development Fund will pay even lower application costs with a flat government fee for a family of four now fixed at just $25,000. Additional dependants for families larger than four can also be included for an additional $15,000 per person. Due diligence, passport and legal fees are also applicable for both routes.

The recent changes to these costs make the Antigua and Barbuda citizenship programme even more attractive, offering a very feasible solution to obtaining a second passport which will allow one to travel to over 130 countries world wide including the Hong Kong, UK, Switzerland and many more…

Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme Amends Family Age Limits.

December 12th, 2016   •   Comments Off on Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme Amends Family Age Limits.   

As part of the Commonwealth, Dominica is just one of a number of Caribbean islands offering a low cost Citizenship by Investment scheme. Dominica has just recently amended its programme to include some additional benefits. One of the main improvements is that the age limit for children has been increased from 25 years old to 28 years old. Secondly, the age limit for elderly dependents has been decreased to 55 years old, resulting in a more flexible scheme for those wishing to include a number of family members under one application.

Dominica offers one of the most cost effective and quickest citizenship by investment programmes in the world. Investors can choose from two main options to obtain a second passport, a non refundable donation to the government at $100,000 per single applicant + fees, or an investment in real estate, starting from $200,000 + fees. The passport can be issued as quickly as 3 – 4 months and will allow investors the ability to visa free travel to over 100 countries worldwide including the UK and the Schengen zone.

The government fees associated with a real estate investment are now as follows:

  • Children above the age of 18 but younger than 28 – $25,000.
  • Elderly dependents – $25,000.

Investors considering the Caribbean, can also look at the Citizenship by Investment schemes in St Kitts, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda and St Lucia.
