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.

Dominica’s Citizenship in 2020

Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program enters its 27th year of operation in 2020. The framework of the program has been re-evaluated and the Citizenship by Investment Unit has adopted the following policies since 3rd February 2020:

  • 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.
  • All family members qualify for Dominica Citizenship: The Government of Dominica has widened the definition of ‘dependent’ under the Citizenship by Investment Program. Family Reunification has been facilitated through new Changes to Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program. The changes allow unqualifying dependents to be added to the application of the main applicant.
  • According to the new rules, it is enough to show that the main applicant or their spouse supports the child. Similarly, parents and grandparents of the main applicant or their spouse no longer are obliged to show they live with the main applicant. To qualify the parent or grandparent as an eligible dependent, it is enough to demonstrate the support they receive from the applicant or their spouse.
  • Sibling Category of Dominica CBI: Notably, the Government introduced an outstanding ‘sibling’ category. The siblings who are 18 or older, single, and childless can now qualify for citizenship. They can be related either to the main applicant or their spouse. The new changes also allow newborn children and newly-married spouses to become citizens of Dominica – even after the main applicant receives citizenship.


According to the CBI Index, published by a well-known magazine, Dominica is ranked the best country to obtain citizenship by investment for five consecutive years.
