The Founder and Managing Director, Ninu Intercontinental Investments Limited, Paula Seyi-Ogedengbe, has pledged the organisation’s readiness to provide unparalleled end-to-end customer support to clients who are seeking better access to the world for business expansion opportunities, wealth and estate management, as well as succession planning.
The organisation, she noted, is listed as authorised representatives of the Antigua and Barbuda citizenship by investment programme, with headquarters in London, UK, and a local office in Lagos, Nigeria.
The company is an agency that provides African high net-worth individuals (HNWIs) with citizenship and residency by investment solutions from international governments and institutions seeking for foreign direct investment from within the African continent.
This, Seyi-Ogedengbe said, would be achieved from the discovery to the finalisation of their investment.
“The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment programme is the most affordable means for African families to overcome visa restrictions that are increasingly placed on many African countries, which limits ease of access to the rest of the world and global mobility in this globalised era.”
She emphasised on the visa application processes, which are becoming increasingly complex for Nigerians.
” For instance, under the Trump administration, US visa application fees for Nigerian applicants have been increased and an interview waiver process for visa renewals for frequent travelers has been indefinitely suspended, while a ban has also been placed on issuing immigrant visas to Nigerians.
“Many other African countries like Ghana and Kenya have large groups of individuals that cannot travel without undergoing the tedious visa application processes that do not guarantee the approval of the visa.”
The Antigua and Barbuda CIP, the director noted, provides a plan B, for Africans that are seeking to travel the world and gain access to global business opportunities without being limited by the increasingly tense visa restrictions.
“The Antigua and Barbuda passport has a high mobility score and is ranked in the world’s top 30 passports.
“The Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship by Investment Program is still the most affordable citizenship by investment program for families of four; it costs a $100,000 minimum investment, compared to 150,000 for St. Lucia, 175,000 for Dominica, and 200,000 for Grenada.
“The A&B passport is also ranked higher than most Caribbean countries that offer citizenship by investment, ahead of St. Lucia, Grenada and Dominica,” she added.
