Anguilla Residency By Investment

The Official Website of the Anguilla Residency By Investment Programme

About ARBI

Anguilla’s Residency by Investment is a program offered by the Government of Anguilla which allows non-belongers of Anguilla the opportunity to acquire Permanent Residency in Anguilla by making a financial contribution to the island and proving to be of good health and good character.

It formalizes and clearly defines the requirements for the grant of PR status via investment in an effort to encourage further investment while promoting growth and encouraging economic diversification of Anguilla’s economy.

Why Residency in Anguilla

Permanent Residency in Anguilla is an attractive option for persons who already have ties here and wish to formally make Anguilla their second home, by conferring the right to reside in Anguilla year-round without being subject to immigration control.

Additionally, persons intending to migrate can benefit from the transition to a low-tax jurisdiction that boasts slower paced living, a clean environment, low air pollution, low crime rates and a relatively good quality of life set amidst a tropical climate, amazing food, people and beautiful beaches.

It is also equally appealing to those who continue to live abroad but desire an alternate country of residence for themselves and their family members for tax planning and other purposes.

Pathway to British Citizenship

Permanent Resident status in Anguilla is an attractive pathway to becoming a British Overseas Territories Citizen and eventually a British Citizen. However, the naturalization process to become a BOTC requires that the applicant has been lawfully residing in Anguilla for five years prior to the date of application and a similar time requirement applies to registration as a British Citizen.

Therefore, the grant of permanent resident status in Anguilla offers the immediate benefit of residence in Anguilla, as well as the opportunity to apply for BOTC and British citizenship provided that residents meet the time requirement.
