Friday 16th November, 2018-The Chief Executive of the immigration advisory firm AAA Associates which specializes in the Citizenship-By Investment (CBI) programmes has met Prime Minister the Gaston Browne and discussed ways of boosting Antigua’s Citizenship by Investment program to the Middle Eastern potential applicants.
The company said the move is to consolidate its international position, which will significantly help its Middle East applicants in cutting down the application processing time of acquiring Caribbean nationality.
Imran Farooq and the prime minister also spoke about the growing investment opportunities in the Caribbean and how the applicants in Middle East could avail them.
Headquartered in Dubai, UAE, AAA Associates immigration and CBI advisory assists potential applicants for residence planning, citizenship and real estate consulting. In addition to UAE residents, the company serves applicants from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, India, Pakistan, Iran and Syria.
The high applicant inflow is attributed to the latest amendments in the citizenship legislation of countries such as ‘Antigua & Barbuda’, ‘Dominica’ and ‘Saint Kitts & Nevis’, where these countries dramatically slashed investment cost of Citizenship by Investment in a bid to take the programme to the maximum number of people.
The Citizenship-by-investment programmes are increasingly becoming popular among wealthy residents in the UAE in particular and in the Middle Eastern citizens in general according to a statement.
