Following in the footsteps of its Caribbean neighbours, Antigua is the last island to announce adjustments to their dependent requirements and allow adult siblings to be included within one family application. The official memo, circulated by the head of the Citizenship by Investment Unit, states that the following dependents can be included:

(a) A current spouse of the principal applicant;
(b) A child of the principal applicant, or of his or her spouse, who is 0 – 30 years of age and is financially dependent on the principal applicant;
(c) A child of the principal applicant, or of his or her spouse, who is 18 years or older but who is physically or mentally handicapped and who is living with and is fully supported by the principal applicant;
(d) A parent or grandparent of the principal applicant, or of his or her spouse, who is fifty-five years of age or older and who is financially dependent on the principal applicant.
(e) A sibling of the principal applicant, or of his or her spouse, if unmarried;
(f) A future spouse of the principal applicant. A fee of US$50,000 is payable upon application;
(g) A future spouse of dependent children where the dependent child is financially dependent on the principal applicant; and
(h) A future child of a dependent child. A fee of US$10,000 is to be payable for children under 5 years of age and US$20,000 for children 6 – 17 years of

Previously the fee for adding an adult dependent was $75,000, but this has been reduced to $50,000. The more lenient age brackets and reduced fees make Antigua’s citizenship programme a very attractive and affordable option for large families. There are several investment options available to gain citizenship in Antigua, one of the lowest cost and most popular routes is the $100,000 contribution to Antigua’s National Development Fund.
