NEW DELHI, India, Aug. 11, CMC – Cricket may soon not be the only connection Indians have with the Caribbean, according to reports here.

The Times of India in a report on Sunday said St Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, and Antigua and Barbuda have “rolled out attractive cash-for-citizenship programs to woo Indian immigrants”.

It said that Antigua and Barbuda is the latest to launch a citizenship-by-investment (CIP) program, opening up its borders to Indian immigrants in a month. The paper said that Antigua and Barbuda is giving full citizenship to Indian nationals for an investment of at least US$400,000 in an approved real estate project.

It said in order to become a citizen of St Kitts and Nevis an investment of US$400,000 is also required while Dominica is even cheaper at US$100,000.
