Introducing Dominica

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.

Truly spectacular Caribbean beauty

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, and also offers visa-free travel to 139 other nations including the UK and the European Schengen Area countries.
