Antigua & Barbuda

Located in the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean, the twin island nation of Antigua and Barbuda became independent within the British Commonwealth in 1981. The nation’s many harbours are ideal for cruise ships and yachts, and its idyllic beaches and crystal blue waters make it a premier destination in the Caribbean. The population of Antigua is about 98,000 of which just over 20,000 live in the capital city, St. John’s. While there is no official language, the one most spoken and used is English.Antigua citizenship applicants obtain an irrevocable citizenship and passport without having to reside in the country or renounce their current nationality.
