Commonwealth Of Dominica

Known as the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean,” the Commonwealth of Dominica is indeed a place of unspoiled natural beauty with its lush mountain rainforest and its breathtaking underwater landscape. Found halfway along the Eastern Caribbean archipelago, the size of the island is about 751 km² (290 square miles) and boasts 148 km (91 miles) of coastal line. Rivers, lakes, waterfalls and hot springs abound in this volcanic island.

The Citizenship by Investment Program of Dominica has been operating since 1993 and is legally entrenched in the Dominican Constitution and the Citizenship Act. Citizenship in Dominica can offer a lifetime of security. Once obtained, Dominica’s citizenship is for life and will allow you to travel to over 110 countries including European Union, the Schengen region, and the United Kingdom. Passports are valid for 10 years, and are easily renewed in Dominica.

Investors can be granted citizenship by making an economic contribution to the Government Fund, at least US$100,000 depending on the number of dependents included in the application. Another option is to invest in designated real estate with a value of at least US$200,000. Applicant may re-sell their property to another applicant under the program but they must wait at least five years.

In order to qualify, applicant must have a clean criminal record, purchase a permanent residence with a minimum value of €500.000, plus V.A.T. in Cyprus, and choose one of the prescribed investment options which are now set at a minimum of €2million and maintain it for the required duration of 3 years.

The primary benefit of this program is the freedom to travel throughout EU and to over 150 countries across the world without the issuing of any visa. Moreover, Cyprus’s economic citizenship program does not require a contribution to the country; citizenships are granted through direct investment.

Applicants may also include dependents above 18 to 28 years old if they are fully dependent on the applicant.
