Several countries have adopted programs which allow the acquisition of citizenship in return for a direct contribution to the state as a means of development of the country. In Dominica, citizenship-by-investment is based on Section 101 of the Constitution and Sections 8 and 20 (1) of the Citizenship Act. It allows the government to operate a program under which citizenship is given to persons who qualify under criteria set by the government in its policy guidelines.

When you acquire citizenship under the Dominica citizenship program, you and your family enjoy full citizenship for life, which can be passed on to future generations.

Citizenship by Investment – Options

Under the government contribution option clients make a one-time payment to the government (plus processing fees) and, providing they meet the due diligence requirement, are granted Dominica citizenship and a passport.

The second option is to purchase approved real estate or investment and pay a reduced government contribution (plus processing fees). The same due diligence requirements apply. This investment option is costlier, however the client actually owns something in Dominica with the potential for a return on investment.
