The Deputy Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP), Thomas Anthony, said the unit does not anticipate that US President Donald Trump’s executive order against immigrants from seven Muslim countries will have any major impact on CIP applications.
Anthony said the unit is closely monitoring the situation to see what happens at the end of the three to four month ban on immigrants and refugees from the Muslim majority nations.
The executive order in question has imposed a 90-day ban on people entering the United States from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It also prevents all refugees from entering the US for 120 days.
In an exclusive interview with OBSERVER media, Anthony explained that of those seven countries, Syria is the only one that can access Antigua & Barbuda’s CIP.
