- Upon approval, the investors must take an oath or affirm their allegiance at a Consulate, High Commission, or Embassy of Antigua and Barbuda before receiving their citizenship and passport.
The popularity of Antigua and Barbuda’s CIP has resulted in development of numerous properties and real-estate projects all over the country. Applicants are investing in holiday homes, commercial properties, and high-end residential real-estate projects.
