Reasons to Acquire an Antigua Passport

One of the most powerful passports in the Caribbean today is the Antigua and Barbuda passport. It is one of the most powerful passports among the different Caribbean countries.

If you are thinking of getting another travel document that you can use for your frequent jaunts overseas, here are the top benefits you will experience when you get an Antigua passport:

1. You will enjoy visa-free travel

With Antiguan passport you can enjoy visa-free travel to more than 130 countries.
As an Antigua passport holder, you will be allowed visa-free entry or visa on arrival access to over 130 countries including:
  • The United Kingdom
  • EU Schengen zone
  • Hong Kong
  • Singapore
  • Other Caribbean countries (Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, etc.)
  • Other British Commonwealth countries (Botswana, Swaziland, Tunisia, Vanuatu, etc.)
  • Visa-free entry to UAE, China and Russia expected within 12 months of writing

If you visit these countries often, you won’t have to worry about applying for a visit or tourist visa before your scheduled flight.

You will save a lot of time and money on visa application as well. Simply use your valid Antigua passport when purchasing your air ticket, and move on to the next step of your journey.

2. You will have more enjoyable airport layovers

Traveling overseas often means changing flights and having layovers at different airports. If you have several hours to spend during your stopover in a country which allows visa-free entry to Antigua passport holders, you can step out of the airport for a while.

You can then explore nearby tourist attractions or drop by a popular restaurant or café you have always wanted to try. Whether you do something recreational or educational during the layover, just make sure you have enough time to get back to the airport and catch your flight.

3. Your Antigua passport can be your second passport

Although you may be qualified to acquire another passport from certain countries, many of these nations will require you to give up or legally change your present nationality first. This is a problem you won’t encounter if you apply for an Antigua passport.

Antigua and Barbados allows dual citizenship. This means that you can be a citizen of and hold a passport issued by Antigua and Barbados while still being a legal resident of and holding the passport given to you by your current country of residence.

With an Antigua citizenship, you will still have the freedom to enjoy your life in your home country or current country of residence anytime.

An additional benefit is that in the case of closed international borders, only citizens of another country may be allowed to travel so having an Antiguan passport offers a mobility hedge in the future for you and your family.

4. You will have an electronic passport

Many countries provide electronic passports or e-passports, but not all do. Antigua now offers e-passports which store biometric data. Their passports also have the latest state-of-the-art security measures which are at par with current international standards.

With an Antigua digital passport, you won’t have to worry too much about identity theft whenever you use this document for travel purposes or as an additional means of identification.

5. You get to live in the Caribbean

Lastly, if you have always wanted to have a home in an island paradise where you can go for your holidays or even for your retirement, your Antigua passport makes this easy.

Antigua and Barbuda offers a citizenship by investment program. By investing in a property or business in the country, or making a donation to the government, you can become a citizen and hold an Antigua passport. You can then enter the country at your leisure and reside there for as long as you like each year.

With an Antigua passport, you will enjoy less stressful journeys to an impressive number of countries – no matter how often you travel. You will even have the opportunity to own a property in Antigua – a big plus if you want to begin your dream of living in an island paradise now or sometime in the future.
