We have always dreamt of being independent global citizens living in the first world country to raise our children with the best quality of life we can. But since nature has created us as citizens of a developing country, we started to search for better life options in greener pastures by ourselves. And we identified five criteria crucial for our choice:
We worked on our dream for over two decades. Still, we only succeeded in relocating our children while staying in our country right up to retirement.
I am a happy father of four successful children (a lawyer, two engineers, a realtor) and a grandparent.
Our children were raised in the UK, and as destiny would have it, they became British citizens at some point in time. That environment ticked all of our boxes for the kind of quality of life we wished for our children. It was then our turn to become citizens of society with higher living standards to visit our children with minimal restrictions.
In early 2019, my friend sent me a Migronis leaflet via Whatsapp. It was telling about all the advantages of getting another citizenship and was truly inspiring. So I got back to my friend, “Sounds great, but the age?” I had doubts about migrating to a new place at 62.
Then I shared this idea with my wife, we talked through it, and she encouraged me to reconsider my initial position. We sold some assets, started saving up for the program, and initiated the acquiring process a few months later.
The Migronis team had all the answers I was looking for, so I was pretty sure what I would get for the money paid. And we chose a program suitable both for my and my wife’s needs. It was helpful to have a person with me all the way long, right to the end of the process.
We do love traveling. We may have visited over fifty countries and counting. So we know exactly 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.
Besides, we have already become familiar with the beauty of the Caribbean.
In 2015, we had a 7-day family cruise to the US Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. Croix), St. John’s, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Lucia, Grenada, and San Juan in Puerto Rico. It was a trip of a lifetime! We explored, scuba-dived, kayaked, enjoyed seafood, and met wonderful people.
Similarly, in December 2019, we took a cruise through the Western Caribbean and saw the Caribbean islands’ loveliness from that side.
I received my first Migronis email on 22 July 2019 and our Antigua and Barbuda passport photocopies on 24 July 2020. It came to a year for the whole process. Probably, five months were lost because of the lockdown, so the citizenship acquisition took up to six months after all.
I will recommend Migronis to my relatives and friends interested in such a service. In fact, I have already done it.
