PM Browne says A&B safe from UK visa requirements

Following the United Kingdom’s announcement of visa requirements on Dominica, Prime Minister Gaston Browne rebuffed any concerns that Antigua and Barbuda could face similar actions – or that the move could have a negative impact on the twin island nation’s citizenship by investment (CBI) programme.

On July 19, the United Kingdom announced that the decision to bring in a visa regime on Dominica was in response to concerns about Dominica’s CBI scheme and that, with immediate effect, its citizens will now be required to obtain a visa, including to visit.

Responding to questions from the opposition in Parliament yesterday, the Prime Minister repeatedly replied that the announcement was about Britain’s plan to roll out its Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) initiative.
