The Antigua and Barbuda passport is issued to citizens of Antigua and Barbuda for international travel. The passport is a Caricom passport as Antigua and Barbuda is a member of the Caribbean Community.

Physical appearance[edit]

The Antigua and Barbuda passport shares the common design standards of CARICOM passports. The cover is dark blue (for civilians) with the country's coat of arms and country name as well as the CARICOM logo on the front cover.

Travel restrictions[edit]

In 2009, the Antigua and Barbuda Government signed a visa waiver agreement with the European Union which allows an Antigua and Barbuda citizen to visit the Schengen countries without a visa for a period of 3 months within any 6-month period following the date of first entry into any EU country.

In 2016, Antigua and Barbuda passport holders enjoyed visa-free access, or visa-on-arrival, to 134 countries and territories, ranking as the 30th best passport in the world according to the Visa Restrictions Index.[1] Passport holders may travel to Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK and Europe, among others, with relative ease and without challenging visa requirements.[2]

As of June 27, 2017, citizens of Antigua and Barbuda will need a visa to visit Canada. From that date, any existing electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) issued to a citizen of Antigua and Barbuda will become null and void, and affected individuals who had previously been issued an eTA will no longer be able to use that eTA for the purposes of travel to Canada.[3]
