Dominica is a mountainous island located in the Eastern Caribbean. Its rain forests, its mesmerizing natural sceneries, and its lush national parks make it an exotic ecotourism destination like no other.
For investors, Dominica is more than just a touristy country. According to the Citizenship by Investment Index, Dominica has the world’s best citizenship by investment program, combining extensive due diligence with speed, affordability, and reliability.

Requirements of Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program

When considering getting the Dominican Citizenship, an investor has two investment options.

  1. A contribution to the Government Economic Diversification Fund. The contribution amount starts at $100,000 and depends on the size of the family applying. This is a one-time, non-refundable investment.
  2. A real estate investment of at least $200,000 in a government approved project. The property should be maintained for at least 3 years.

Benefits of Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program

Dominica permits dual citizenship which means that an investor doesn’t have to denounce their current nationality in order to get the Dominican one. Investing in a Dominican passport will grant the investor countless benefits including:

  1. Visa-Free travel to 139 countries including the United Kingdome and Schengen countries.
  2. Affordability in comparison to other Citizenship by investment programs.
  3. No taxes on capital gains or inheritance.
  4. Access to British education and healthcare since Dominica is a member country in the Commonwealth of Nations.
  5. Lifetime citizenship which can be passed on to future generations by descent.

To get Dominica Citizenship and enjoy its benefits, an investor doesn’t need to reside in or visit Dominica.
