Overview of Recent Citizenship by Investment News

The following changes to the Citizenship by Investment Programs have been implemented recently:

Effective immediately the Program will no longer accept citizenship applications from the nationals of Iran, regardless of the place of permeant residence. The change is made due to inability to carry out due-diligence checks inside Iran as well as receive any bank transfers originating from Iran.

All applicants turning 16 years of age during Government’s 3 month processing time are now required to submit US$4,000 to undergo due-diligence.

All applicants over the age of 16 are now required to submit their fingerprints as part of their Citizenship by Investment Application.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to inform all Antigua passport holders that a visa waiver agreement with Russia is currently being finalized and vetted.
