DOMINICA CITIZENSHIP

HOW TO OBTAIN DOMINICA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT

The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program is the most financially advantageous program of its kind for those seeking a second citizenship.

The Commonwealth of Dominica is a parliamentary democracy and member of La Francophonie. With that, Citizenship of Dominica enables visa-free travel to 128 countries and can be obtained by investing in real estate or donating to Dominica’s National Transformation Fund. Additionally, all family members brought along will be eligible to gain Dominica citizenship.

Further, the government of Dominica announced the beginning of the issuance of a new biometric passport from July 19, 2021. Citizens of Dominica can get a modern biometric passport when replacing an expired or restoring a lost document. Candidates waiting for passports can obtain current passports or wait for biometric passports. Further, the initial deadline given by the Government of Dominica to replace the machine-readable passports to the new e-passport has now been revised from July 2023 to August 30th, 2022.

Recently, Dominica has had tough economic times due to tropical storms and unfavorable weather. However, the people are always working together to rebuild. With that, Dominica is emerging stronger than it ever was.

In addition, those looking for entrepreneurial endeavors might look to the major industries with a positive outlook in Dominica. This includes agriculture, tourism, manufacturing recover and geothermal electricity generation.

School in Dominica is largely influenced by long-established religious institutions, and schooling is compulsory from ages 5 to 16.

As of right now, those seeking higher education must go overseas to get a degree. However, there are three lower-level tertiary schools on the island, including the Dominica State College, the School of Nursing and the Dominica Teachers Training College.

As mentioned, Dominica experienced a lot of damage from tropical storms, with the real estate market taking the biggest hit. However, real estate is still very attractive for foreigners and the market demand has remained steady.

Overall, typical home prices range between $200,000 to $600,000 USD, with North Americans being the largest portion of investors in the country.

The worry of finding drinkable water in some smaller islands is a legitimate concern for many properties, but in Dominica, 95.8% of those with Dominica citizenship have access to safe drinking water.

Overall, healthcare has come a long way in recent years. It is becoming quite modern and comparable to mainland healthcare systems. However, with its current resources, Dominica cannot provide complicated procedures such as radiation, complex orthopedic surgery and burn surgery. Further, patients must be taken oversees to larger university hospitals.

With that, an emerging trend in Dominica is a greater focus on mental health, which until this point, has been understudied and under treated. The outlook for future healthcare innovation is looking as bright as it ever has.

IMPORTANT NEWS

Changing your name is prohibited. New rules for investment citizens

At the end of 2023, Dominica implemented new rules for its CIP to address inconsistencies with EU and UK requirements. Let us remind you that the UK has deprived Dominican citizens of the right to visa-free entry back in 2023. Thus, perhaps Dominica’s decisions according CIP rules will return visa-free entry to the United Kingdom to Dominican citizens in the foreseeable future.

Here are some key changes. Investors who have acquired Dominican citizenship can no longer change their name. Moreover, it is specifically mentioned that persons who change their name within five years of obtaining Dominica Investment Citizenship will have it revoked. Additionally, individuals who have been denied a US, UK or EU visa will not be able to apply for Dominican citizenship. For more details contact APEX >>
