More than 4,000 applications for amnesty


CABINET NOTES: The Minister responsible for Immigration reported that more than 4,000 applications for amnesty have been received by the Immigration Department; the programme expires June 30, 2022.

The applications are divided into two batches. One batch goes towards those who have spent seven or more years in Antigua and Barbuda, and therefore qualify for citizenship; the other batch comprise those who have spent four or more years in the country and therefore qualify for residency.

The Cabinet determined that it will set a new policy regarding those who are eligible for citizenship.

There will be no lawful need for any prospective citizen to apply for a work permit during the wait for the conferring of citizenship.

    • Mr. Byam, was it a “criminal” who shot TESSA BARTHLEY????

      What about ANDREA HUGHES??

  1. It’s amazing that Antigua citizens keep voting for a government that rewards illegal immigrants with our citizenship.

    At least our Antigua CBI citizens pay $125,000 to get our citizenship, and 99.9% of them don’t have criminal records.

    Why should we give citizenship away to 4,000 illegal immigrant people when we are charging others $125,000 to do it properly?
