Dominica
Investment Immigration Program

Dominica

The Commonwealth of Dominica has a quick and transparent process to obtain a passport to 130 countries worldwide. For other countries including Ukraine, India and Vietnam, Dominica citizens enjoy the benefit of visa on arrival.

Benefits of Dominica Program

As globalization paves the way for borderless opportunities, countries around the world have embraced citizenship by investment programs to attract foreign individuals seeking a new home and enhanced global mobility. In the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda has emerged as an enticing destination, offering a prestigious citizenship by investment program that comes with a plethora of benefits.

Citizenship Program Options

Economic Diversification Fund (EDF)

It is not necessary to visit or reside in Dominica to be eligible. The EDF contribution is U.S.$100,000 for a single applicant, which increases to U.S.$175,000 to add a spouse, and to U.S.$200,000 to add up to three qualifying dependents. Funds have gone to such public-sector projects as schools, the hospital, the airport, a national sports stadium and a geothermal energy plant. Private-sector projects include information technology, tourism and agriculture.

Real Estate Investment

To take advantage of the real estate option requires purchasing property worth at least U.S.$200,000 or contributing at least that into an approved project. Applicants can combine their investments if each amount to at least U.S.$200,000.

The real estate must be held for three years for citizenship to be granted. Eligible dependents, who must be fully supported by the main applicant, include the main applicant’s or spouse’s children under 18 (or under 30 if the child is a full-time student); an unmarried daughter of the main applicant up to 30 living with the main applicant; a child of the main applicant or spouse over 18 and physically or mentally challenged; and parents or grandparents of the main applicant or spouse over 55 living with the main applicant.
Persons who acquire citizenship under its citizenship-by-investment program are not taxed.
