Dominica is located in the Caribbean islands, founded by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and its capital is Roseau. The island faces the Caribbean Sea in the west and the Atlantic Ocean in its east. It is neighbored by the French island of Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the South.

Dominica in recent years is becoming a major international financial center with large sectors such as offshore banking, payment processing companies, and general corporate activities.

Dominica’s citizenship by investment program has a long and distinguished history which was established in 1993 and is enshrined in statute. Subject to fulfilling due diligence requirements, investors in approved real estate projects are offered the opportunity to become citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

Major Changes to Dominica Citizenship Laws In 2022

According to the new law published on August 18, 2022, the concept of dependents is redefined and limited to the following. The Government of Dominica has announced some changes to the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program amounts that will take effect in mid-September 2022. In this article, we will take a quick look at these recent developments. The new items are as follows:

  • Changes regarding the age, dependents and their number in the file, which includes the spouse of the main applicant, the children under 18 of the main applicant and the spouse, having a maximum age of 18-30 years for dependent children with special conditions, the unmarried daughter of the main applicant below who is 25 years old with special conditions, dependent children over 18 years old of the main applicant and spouse with physical or mental problems, parents or grandparents over 65 years old with special conditions of the main applicant or spouse.
  • Changes regarding government costs through investment in any of the two citizenship methods: Donation of a non-refundable to the Economic Development Fund (EDF) and reforms of government fees payable to government approved properties/projects.
  • All agents must submit with both the electronic and hard copy application a world check/pre-screen due diligence of their applicant(s) from a reputable due diligence company.
  • Applicants who have been denied a visa from jurisdictions with whom the Commonwealth of Dominica has a visa waiver agreement (such as the Schengen Region and the United Kingdom) should refrain from applying to the program.
  • The applicant is mandated to use the escrow accounts established at the National Bank of Dominica of which the Government is a signatory, as well as to provide the proof of payment for transfers made to the Escrow Account and the Economic Diversification Fund Account (as applicable).
  • The investor is required to provide proof of the receipt of funds for the full investment and remitter details to match him. In the event of a third party remitting for the applicant, an explanation must be provided and the KYC procedures must be performed.
