The documentary requirements of the Antigua and Barbuda Citizenship-by-Investment program are reasonable and the procedures are quite straightforward.

Many of the documents you will be required to submit will require certification by a notary, a lawyer, or other recognized legal entity. The prescribed forms for application are as follows:

  • Citizenship by Investment Applications Form AB1
  • Photograph and Signature Certificate Form AB2
  • Medical Certificate Form AB3
  • Investment Confirmation Form AB4
  • Agent Form AB5
  • Passport Application Forms

Accompanying and specific documentation is also required such as original signed recent medical certificate by approved medical practitioner, police certificate, passport, photos, HIV tests, proof of marriages, divorces, name changes, residences etc.  Citizens International provides comprehensive guidance as well as example letters to make the process as easy as possible.

The application form must be completed in English and the prescribed forms are to be submitted together with original or certified supporting documentation as specified by the government.

The Citizenship Investment Unit (CIU) examines the application thoroughly and, if deemed necessary, may request the applicant to attend an interview.   The CIU undertakes strict due diligence checks and will decline an application if the applicant makes a false statement or omits any relevant information in the application.

The applicant must apply on the prescribed government forms which can only be submitted through an Agent who is the holder of a Citizenship-by-Investment program licence granted under the Regulations.

Citizens International’s legal and accounting professionals will guide you through the application process with great care and attention to detail in order to streamline your processing time.
