Commonwealth of Dominica

Commonwealth of Dominica is an island country Dominica situated in the Lesser Antilles region of the Caribbean Sea with a total land area of 751 km2. Dominica is known as the Nature Island of Caribbean. It is an English-speaking country and was a British colony until its independence in 1978. Like any other countries, Dominica’s Economy is dependent on its Tourism and Agriculture.

Citizenship By Investment

It is one of the longest-running Economic Citizenship Programs in the world. The Commonwealth of Dominica’s Economic Citizenship Program was introduced in 1993 to enable all qualified investors and their family members to apply for Dominican citizenship by means of investment.

The contribution proceeds generated from the program are used to fund projects in the public and private sectors which are in need of financial support. These include building schools, renovating hospitals, and the creation of a national sports stadium, as well as a variety of other undertakings across numerous industries such as tourism, information technology and agriculture.
