The amnesty will pave the way for non-nationals to be put on a path to obtain Antigua and Barbuda citizenship

Exert from Prime Minister Gaston Browne’s Budget Speech today

Amnesty

Mr. Speaker, the many private and public sector projects to be implemented in 2022 will require additional labour, if we are to secure the projected 8 per cent growth rate.

To ensure that sufficient labour is available domestically, we will offer amnesty to individuals living in Antigua and Barbuda whose status is not regularised.

The amnesty period will run from March 1 to April 30 2022.

  1. So to implement more LABOURERS YOU HAVE TO GIVE AWAY ANTIGUAN / PASSPORT TO JAMAICANS GUYANESE TRINIS ?

    ANTIGUANS ARENT ABLE TO FUEL THE 8th percent …your such a liard YOUR ALP DYNASTY JUS WANT THESE FOREIGNERS TO VOTE FOR U ALL…WHO U THINK UR FOOLING…even they NEED TO NOT VOTE FOR YOU.

    GASTON YOU ARE ANTIGUAS WORST PM..

    • If some of us know what ” economics ” is all about then you definitely know what a great move the PM has made. It will be more monies in the security net of Social Security, Medical Benefits, Inland Revenue etc etc …… Very strategic indeed!!

      • NO your wrong
        How come it hasn’t worked to this day?
        Nothing in Antigua is regulated properly and most of the foreigners don’t care to contribute, they only want to take and use Antigua and Barbuda as stepping stones.
        I bet if western union and money gram asked for social and medical benefits contributions before allowing them to send monies back to where they originated things would be different.

        • You are right in what you say about people using Antigua but you should also consider that there are foreigners who contribute to the country because they’re foreigners who make a living here and contribute with the taxes and with the island process and many thing

  2. So, the amnesty period is March to April. When then is the election? We all know that the amnesty is to coincide with the election so that ALP can get the votes of those illegal immigrants who will become legal under the amnesty. That nonsense about needing the Labour force is pure BS, just a cover for the election amnesty. We should soon hear about the property tax amnesty where all arrears of property tax are forgiven. We get that one every election under Gaston. I am surprised anyone pays property taxes anymore. Just sit back and wait for the next election amnesty on property tax.

  3. all you retards rather is a political game or not you lazy asses dont want do hard iys we the foriegners have antigua going pies of shits when yall stop being lazy n stop wanting to sit in offices n dont do work n get paid for doing nun you talk about work permit work permit that not being signed when u lazy asses get thejob yalldontperfor bunch idiots smh dont like seeing comments tht dont make sense tbh

    • Firstly, you need to write English. If you are a non national and don’t like the jobs available to you, you can go home and do better. You are obviously in Antigua because you can’t do better in your country. Try going to America or Europe with no education or skills and see what minimum wage job you get. Antiguans are in their own country and not in yours.

      • How are you so sure that Antiguans aren’t in their country? I hate when people like act as if Antiguans aren’t all over the world doing the same thing as foreigners here not to mention America mostly where they make their babies so that their babies can get citizenship and rights over there not here. Stop assuming what you don’t know or play blind to.

        • Same would apply to Antiguans in a foreign country. Plenty of them are working for minimum wage in New York and some of them could do better in Antigua. They like the bright lights of Broadway.

    • Pist off Antigua, You are rambling, are you a pissed off Antiguan or are you a foreigner? Any way, I understand you are angry but it would make sense if you could explain the point you are trying to get across. Think about it, the foreigners in Antigua did not get an opportunity for amnesty until they are needed to vote. That tells me that election will be in a few months, after amnesty is received by the end of April and the recipients(foreigners) are registered to vote then Gaston will call election. All am saying is that you don’t have to vote ABLP because Gaston tricked you. If he was genuine, he would have done that a few years ago. Vote your conscience, did Gaston care about you before he needed something? Don’t let him insult your intelligence, this goes for all Antiguans who are receiving hand-outs as well. Don’t be fooled by the temporary so-called help. Gaston and his cabinet has much more to gain, income upwards of $10,000 a month, free utilities, massive pension for life, free travel at taxpayers expense, power over your lively hood, trying to limit how you live and much, much more. The hand-out is not worth it. Antiguans are always saying, “at least dem better than the other party”. If Antiguans do not allow any party who become corrupt serve more than one term, they cannot become complacent. Let us wake up before it’s really to late. Gaston, his family and all the parliamentarians already took enough.

  4. What we have is a never ending open doors and windows,AMNESTY. The people should not sit idly bye and allowed all of those Amnesties to be happening. If we do not stand up now. We would all be up chits creek into the near future.

  5. The UPP needs to come out today and assure indigenous Antiguans that when they are elected, they will not honor this sham amnesty. All of these foreign criminals need to be deported. Antigua for Antiguans!

    • UPP won’t do that. They need to win over the non nationals to vote UPP. We know labour is depending on their votes. When UPP win the election they won’t send home anybody. They see the future.

    • Antigua for Antigua’s and Antiguan are scattered all over in other people’s countries also, just keep that in mind next time you try to throw that slogan. People like you could never meet God’s face cause God is all about compassion and love for others.

  6. Amnesty for illegal immigrants, meanwhile unjabbed LEGAL ANTIGUAN NATIONALS are not allowed back into their own country! Smh.
