Why Consider the Dominica Citizenship-by-Investment Programme?

Among the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, the Commonwealth of Dominica, formerly a British colony, is an English-speaking Island state of 750 sq. km in the Windward Islands, to the south of Guadeloupe and the north-west of Martinique.

What Can You Expect from Dominican Citizenship?

Dominica is an island of remarkably unspoilt beauty, where lush, green forests roll across hills that stretch from shore to shore. English is the nation's official language, but French is also spoken widely.

Dominica's Citizenship-by-Investment Programme has straightforward requirements and offers many advantages. A $100,000 donation, or a $200,000 property purchase on the island, establishes Dominican citizenship for the whole family, including children and parents. Naturally, background checks are completed but they are undertaken swiftly, and a decision is usually made within eight weeks of your application.

As a member of CARICOM, Dominican citizens are entitled to travel freely within the 15 member states. Among many other Dominica citizenship benefits, passport holders can also travel visa-free to 140 other nations, including China, the UK and the European Schengen Area countries.
