(Barbados Nation) Barbados citizenship is not for sale.
Parliamentary Secretary in the Prime Minister’s office with responsibility for Immigration, Senator Harry Husbands, made this clear yesterday, shortly after the country’s first citizenship induction ceremony at which 120 people became citizens.
Husbands told the DAILY NATION moments after the ceremony at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Conference Centre that Government was not going the route of an economic citizenship programme, which would give citizenship to foreigners who can afford it.
“We thought about it and we decided long ago not to go that way,” he said. “A Barbadian passport is not for sale.”
