Commonwealth of Antigua and Barbuda, Spanish for “ancient” and “bearded” is a twin-island nation lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It consists of two major inhabited islands, Antigua and Barbuda and a number of smaller islands (including Great Bird, Green, Guinea, Long, Maiden and York islands and further south, the island of Redonda.)
Separated by a few nautical miles, Antigua and Barbuda are in the middle of the Leeward islands, part of the Lesser Antilles, roughly at 17 degrees north of the Equator. The country is nicknamed “Land of 365 Beaches” due to the clean turquoise waters and many beaches surrounding the islands. The lush tropical island of Antigua is an inviting paradise and considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. There are already direct flights to Antigua from London, New York, Miami and Toronto in place. Its governance, language and culture have all been strongly influenced by the British Empire, of which the country was formerly a part.
Antigua is a member of the United Nations (UN), the British Commonwealth, Caricom and the Organization of American States (OAS), among many other international organizations. Holders of the Antiguan passport enjoy visa free travel to approximately 151 countries in 2020, including Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Canada, and the countries of the Schengen area. Holders of this passport, like all Caribbean countries, do require a visa to enter the US as they are not a member of the Visa Waiver Program.
