HOW TO OBTAIN DOMINICAN CITIZENSHIP THROUGH INVESTMENT
Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment programme is one of most cost-effective CBI offerings in the Caribbean. There are two main investment routes that applicants can apply through. The first is by making an economic contribution (donation) to Dominica’s National Development Fund. The second option is available by investing in various Government approved real estate projects. The programme requires a minimum investment of $100,000, plus fees.
DOMINICA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT REQUIREMENTS
In addition to making the necessary investment or donation there are several requirements that applicants must meet for Dominica.
Family members can be included in the application for citizenship. The main investor can include:
- Children up to age 30 years
- Dependent parents over 65 years
Due Diligence Requirements
All applicants will need to be of good character and undergo the Governments due diligence formalities: Investors must provide
- Police Reports – evidence of a clean criminal record
- Have no outstanding visa refusals
- Various documentation, including financial documents, employment/ business documents, ID, proof of address
Minimum Stay Requirements
One of the many attractions of gaining second citizenship in Dominica is that the Citizenship by Investment programme does not have any minimum stay requirements. Citizens of Dominica have the right to live, work or study in the country, if they wish to, but this is not a pre-requisite of the programme. There is also no interview or language test required.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT IN DOMINICA?
Processing time is around 60-90 days from the date the applicant’s file is submitted to Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU). Typically, it takes most applicants between 4-6 weeks prior to this to gather all their documentation. Taqween Consultancy’s in-house processing team will assist applicants with this entire process.
