The global number of accredited CBI agents has remained virtually unchanged in the first quarter of the year, falling from 356 to 353 since December. The small difference in numbers, however, masks some significant changes in the composition of each program’s agent roster: 13 agents either lost or did not renew their licenses during the period, while 10 new licenses were issued.
No changes to the accredited agent rosters were observed among the citizenship by investment programs of Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, or Montenegro. Saint Lucia's list of licensed agents shrank by three names and that of Malta by five. Saint Kitts & Nevis' list expanded by three names and that of Vanuatu by two.
Remember that you can always see which agents are licensed and which are blacklisted on our permanent Approved CBI Agents Page.
