Dominica is known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean and it is often said that if Columbus was to return to the Caribbean now, the only island he would recognize would be Dominica. The country boasts of 365 rivers, waterfalls galore, the world’s largest Boiling Lake, and National Parks to create the incomparable beauty of this island, which is situated between two French territories Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Its shores washed by the Caribbean Sea and perfect weather all year round make Dominica the first class offshore haven for international business. Upon successful application, Dominica grants fast and legitimate citizenship and passports.

Dominica Passport and Second Citizenship and its Advantages

  • Second Passport and Dominica Citizenship for life

    Dominica offers second passport and citizenship for life for the main applicant, applicant’s spouse and dependent children (if any).

  • Dual Citizenship

    Dual citizenship is permitted and there is  no residency requirement. It is necessary to visit Dominica once to attend the interview with a committee appointed by the Prime Minister in order to get your second passport. However, once citizenship is granted you have the option of living and working in Dominica for the rest of your life.

  • Granting of Citizenship

    If you submitted all documents (i.e. application forms and all supporting documents, etc.), passed all necessary procedures (like due — diligence) and the interview with the committee was successful, as a rule, you can expect to receive your Certificate of Naturalization and Passport within the next 30 days. The Minister of Immigration and Labour will personally sign the Certificate of Naturalization authenticating you as a citizen of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

  • Dominica Passport Validity

    The validity of passports in Dominica is ten (10) years and five (5) years for persons under the age of 16. A passport which has expired or which has no further space for visas must be replaced with a new one at the nominal cost of USD 45.

  • Visa-Free Travel

    Travel visa-free to more than one hundred (100) countries including: Great Britain, Hong Kong, Liechtenstein, Ireland, South Korea and Switzerland. Where a visa is required (Schengen States), it is relatively easy to obtain it within a day.

  • Tax Free Status

    Second passport and Dominica citizenship is the key to preserve your wealth. There are no capital gains, gift, and inheritance taxes in Dominica. If you have income coming in from outside of Dominica you do not pay income tax on this income.

  • Security

  • Guarantee

The donation into the economy of Dominica has to be deposited into the Government Approved Project Escrow account, which will only be released from the escrow account when the Citizenship is granted or returned to the applicant if citizenship is denied.

Dominica Economic Citizenship — Procedural Steps:

Step one:

When the professional and legal fees have been paid, we will lead you through the collection and completion of the required paper work for the due diligence agency.

You need to print the Disclosure Form and e-mail or fax it to us. Based on the information provided in the Data Form we will advise you on the paperwork requirements and lead you through the process of collecting and organizing the documents. Applicant and members of the family should send some of the documents required by fax or e-mail. We will check the documents and will ask you to make corrections if necessary.

Step two:

We will contact an investigating agency, authorized by the Government of Dominica to conduct due-diligence on the applicants for economic citizenship. They will quote the investigation price for your particular case. The price for the investigation has to be paid by the applicant directly to the account of the agency.

When the original documents and fees are received by the agency, the investigation will commence.

From our experience it normally takes about sixty days to receive the results from the due-diligence agency. It all depends upon the countries, where the checks have to be done.

Step three:

When the due diligence results are received, you then transfer the prescribed investment into the Government account. Payment for the application of Dominica citizenship and second passport will require 100% prepayment.

The processing fees of USD 15,000 or USD 25,000 which would have already been paid will be used to pay Government fees, procedural and stamp fees, our professional and legal fees.

The Government will send a letter of comfort regarding the acceptability of the application which also serves as a letter of invitation to visit Dominica for the final interview.

Main applicant-investor of the family should come for the interview with the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica or with the special Commission appointed by the Prime Minister, which is held every second and last Friday of the month. Sometimes the interview date can be changed due to the Prime Minister’s business arrangements. We will inform you in advance of such change. We advise our clients to come at least two days beforehand, so you familiarize yourself with the country and its people and we have enough time to prepare you for such an interview.

You will be met at the airport by our representative and we will make sure that your stay in Dominica is enjoyable. It is a normal procedure to wait from 10 to 30 days after the interview for your Certificate of Naturalization and Passport. You do not have to wait for it in Dominica, unless you wish to extend your holiday in the country. As soon as we receive the documents, they will be sent to you by courier post.

Note. We can also provide assistance to our clients in other matters related to citizenship after they become citizens of Dominica. For example, passport renewals, issue of new passports if lost or stolen, Driver’s License (if you have already got an existing one in another country), etc. We will always assist you with your investment projects, property acquisition or even setting up your business in Dominica. If you have questions, please refer to our FAQ page. If you still cannot find the answers to your question, we are just one phone call or click of the mouse away from you.
