Latest Commentary

  

A commentary has been addded entitled; Transparency in passports and residence vital.  Published widely on 9 February 2017, it argues that If the governments of countries that operate Citizenship by Investment Programmes (CBIps) believe that CBIPs are important to revenue generation so as to maintain and advance economic and social development, the more transparent they are the better.  No other country should have doubts about them – not in a world where almost everything is capable of cross-border movement.   And, while transparency is crucially important – and that is the commitment that the government of Antigua and Barbuda has made with its new policy – an intense vetting of potential citizenship and passport recipients is absolutely vital.
