Sovereign Research's take:

Antigua and Barbuda is part of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), allowing its citizens to live and work in any other OECS country.
Situated in the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda is an island nation consisting of two major islands: Antigua (the larger one), and Barbuda (the smaller one).

It is a tropical paradise renowned for its beaches. In fact, they have a saying that “there is a beach for every day of the year in Antigua”. 

But besides the great weather and relaxed Caribbean vibe, we like Antigua for another important reason: It is home to a Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program. And it is a very reasonably priced option for larger families.

Several of our subscribers have become dual citizens by participating in it. And we are happy to report that they obtained Antiguan citizenship cheaper than anyone else in the world, thanks to the deep discounts we negotiated for our Total Access (TA) members.

If you are considering Antigua’s CBI program (or any of the other Caribbean CBIs), you too can save tens of thousands of dollars by joining Total Access. The discount you receive will either match or exceed the price of your TA membership. 

(See all applicable prices and available discounts by using our interactive CBI calculator.).
