National Development Fund

The National Development Fund (NDF) route to Antigua and Barbuda’s Citizenship By Investment is a strategic capital mobilization measure aimed at leveraging wealth primarily to fund income generating public sector projects and innovation in entrepreneurship.


Apart from providing a new financing option for businesses, the NDF also adjusts the culture of management and ownership, allowing entrepreneurs to experience the benefit of wider expertise with the NDF providing high quality management expertise.


Additionally, public private partnership projects with economically viable components would be able to apply for financing support from the NDF.


The Government has reduced the NDF investment from USD 200,000 to USD 100,000 for a family of four, effective from Nov 1, 2017.  Other fees to remain the same.
