The Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) of Antigua and Barbuda was established following parliamentary assent to the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Regulations 2014, to support the island nation’s economy. It allows the government to grant citizenships to people who make a significant economic contribution to the country.
In October 2017, Antigua & Barbuda reduced their Citizenship by Investment Programme cost by 50%, making it one of the most affordable economic citizenships in the world – especially for families. In July 2018, the government expanded the programme by starting to accept payments in the form of Bitcoin, opening its doors to cryptocurrency investors.
