Client story

ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA <br>CITIZENSHIP-BY-INVESTMENT — Migronis

Dr. Bolanle Afolabi

Received an Antigua and Barbuda passport

Client story

I am a happy father of four successful children and a soon-to-be grandparent. Our children were raised in the UK, and as destiny would have it, they became British citizens at some point in time.

It was then our turn to become citizens of the world with higher living standards so we can visit our children with minimal restrictions.

We do love traveling. We may have visited over fifty countries. So we exactly know this rustle while making visas and these long delays at some embassies. A passport that does not require a visa to many countries is a true blessing. And an Antigua and Barbuda citizenship is just it.
