Dominica Citizenship program offers such a great deal for investors since it is the most affordable option for citizenship by investment in the Caribbean. The program has been efficiently working in benefit for both investors and the government since 1993. In such a quick process to acquire citizenship about 2 to 3 months is one of the benefits of the program just as how the Dominica passport provides the citizens to visa free travel to 143 countries.
Choosing between the two options that the government offers for citizenship by investment in Dominica makes acquiring a second citizenship and obtaining Dominica passport a really great opportunity!
These options are:
- Make a donation of up to 100,000 USD to the government
Investors need to donate their contribution to the Economic Diversification Fund (EDF). Amount of the donation is affected by the number of dependents involved in the investor's application.
- Invest in a property on the island starting from 200,000 USD
Besides the fact that it is very affordable and a smart investment to purchase property in Dominica, the citizenship by investment on real estate also allows you to sell your property after 3 years and this does not affect your citizenship.
How the Acquisition Process Goes
With our guidance, you will be ensured that all you need for your application to go smoothly is covered. The documents required will be formed correctly, with utmost care and attention.
Firstly, we will check if you are eligible for the application. In order to acquire Dominican citizenship by investment, you have to have a clean criminal record and legitimate source of funds. Your entire family can be included too; the spouse, children until the 30 years of age, siblings and dependent parents over the 55 years of age.
Then, according to your choice of the investment options, we will start collecting the documents. Making sure that all the requirements are covered is essential for an easy and quick process for citizenship so by working with an experienced citizenship consultancy will save you time & money.
After reviewing your file, we will submit it to the Government of Dominica with a certified local agent as the law states. Your submission will be examined and verified without the need of an interview.
When your application gets a pre-approval, you will be issued a letter advising of the decision. Once your application is approved, it is required to transfer the final amount for the option you chose - either the non-refundable donation to the government or purchase price of the property- to Dominica.
After the completion of your investment, your citizenship certificate will be issued, and your passport application submitted on your behalf. You do not need to visit Dominica for this process and your passport will be delivered to your preferred address.
