Antigua is one of the two major islands that make up the Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda. Ringed with coral reefs, the island is known for its 365 beaches, steady trade winds and crystal-clear turquoise waters.
Antigua offers attractive tax benefits, good international access and a stable political system. With a strong range of investor benefits on offer, this luxurious island has attracted some of the world’s most celebrated music stars, fashion designers and business leaders from Eric Clapton to Giorgio Armani. Antigua’s economy has been greatly boosted by the opening of a new International Airport which has made the island more accessible w/direct flights to UK, USA, Germany, as well as to many other International Airports. In addition, there has been a great influx of investment stimulated by Antigua’s Citizenship by Investment program which offers full citizenship in exchange for an investment in property.
