- internal and external passports;
- residence permit in another country (if available);
- certificates of birth, marriage status or divorce, availability of education;

Usually one week is enough to collect the documents. Then the amount of investment is transferred to the escrow account. The agent then submits the documents to the government of Antigua and Barbuda. The presence of an applicant for citizenship is not required.
For two to four months, the trustworthiness of a person and the legality of his funds are studied. If there are no complaints, the result is a positive decision and a certificate of naturalization is issued.
