Actual Process of Dominica Citizenship
Dominica has been offering a Second Passport by Investment Program since 1993, allowing individuals and their families to enjoy all the benefits of being Dominican in exchange for a contribution to the nation’s future. Administered by Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit (CBIU), the Program is entrenched in the country’s legislation and has allowed citizens from across the world to enjoy the security and freedom of belonging to a silent and resourceful nation.
1. First, decide how you would like to contribute.
An applicant has two options for investment in order to gain Dominica citizenship by Investment. One is a non-refundable contribution to the Government’s Economic Diversification Fund (EDF). The other is by investing in preapproved real estate development.
