Elite tourism in the Caribbean is gradually recovering, more and more flights scheduled from the US, as well as from Europe. Therefore, now is the time to recall that Caribbean citizenship, and in particular citizenship of Dominica, can be obtained not only for non-refundable investment, but also for the purchase of a share in resort projects authorized for CIP’s. Although, not only obtaining citizenship motivates investors to participate in such promising projects.
In early July 2021, a deal was made to buy the most expensive house in the Secret Bay project, authorized under the Citizenship of Dominica by Investments program.

Thus, the fact that the project has value in the market is emphasized, regardless of the option with obtaining citizenship. Note that Secret Bay is a 6-star hotel complex for those who value privacy. Which attracts many now that the epidemiological situation in the world is still difficult.
