Eligibility for Dominica Citizenship Program

by Conor Adan

As “The Nature Isle of the Caribbean,” Dominica is one of the most beautiful islands on the planet. From waterfalls to mud ponds, Dominica’s landscape is a tropical paradise of rugged volcanic mountains and exotic fauna.

In this regard, there is no surprise that so many people would want to take up permanent residence on this idyllic island, which is where the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program can help.

What is the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme?

Founded in 1993, it is one of the world’s longest-running economic citizenship schemes. It allows investors to move, work, and even set up a business in Dominica. This is just one of the many benefits of obtaining a Dominica passport and participating in the CBI program.

Here are some associated benefits:

The Commonwealth of Dominica is a nation profoundly rooted in community values and a mindset of reciprocity. Dominica Citizenship by Investment gives you access to a plethora of benefits, including a Dominica passport, among many others. In this program, travelers can travel visa-free to 137 countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Singapore, and every EU nation.

Citizenship also entitles an individual to all the rights, responsibilities, and privileges specified by Dominican law. Dominica offers their citizens assistance and protection, as well as access to diplomatic representation abroad.

To be considered eligible, the principal applicant must meet all of Dominica’s immigration requirements outlined below. Thereafter, a foreign national is eligible to gain full, legal citizenship in the Commonwealth of Dominica for themselves and their family.

Clean Background Check

Dominica has a preeminent private investigative agency that undertakes a comprehensive due diligence procedure on all applicants older than 18 years of age. They ensure that only individuals without criminal records or whose funds have been legally derived are eligible for citizenship.

Good Health

Applicants should be in good health and show no contagious diseases to be approved for Dominica nationality.

Financial Investment

Dominican Citizenship by Investment requires candidates to either contribute significantly to a government fund or purchase approved real estate on the island. Before applying to the investor program, an investor must officially commit to making the investment but will not have to pay the total amount until the investment is approved in principle.

Government Fund

Under the government donation option, applicants must agree to pay the total amount stipulated by the program within 30 days of receiving an Approval in Principle letter from the Citizenship by Investment Unit. However, contributions are not required until the applicant passes the due diligence phase and is officially approved in principle.

Real Estate

For Dominican citizenship under the real estate investment option, an applicant must purchase approved real estate in the country for a minimum of USD 200,000 and maintain ownership for at least three years. Under the citizenship by investment program, an applicant who has owned a property for five years is eligible to offer it for sale.
