The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program operates under § 101 of the nation’s constitution and § 8 and 20 of the Citizenship Act. The program allows the government to grant citizenship to persons who qualify under certain criteria and policy guidelines, while boosting Dominica’s economic investment.
To qualify for citizenship under the current regulations, single applicants may choose from one of two options:
Applicants and dependent family members aged 16 and older are required to attend mandatory virtual interviews, via a secure platform. They are also required to take an oath of allegiance before an authorized notary, justice of the peace, or commissioner of oaths. After pledging allegiance, the application for citizenship is processed further and the citizenship certificates are duly issued.
There is no physical residence requirement. However, the government encourages new citizens to become further involved in the economy, and substantial incentives are on offer to make increased involvement an attractive option. The successful applicant has the right to take up residence in Dominica at any time and for any length of time. Any applicant who has been denied a visa to a country with which Dominica has a visa-free travel agreement must subsequently successfully obtain a visa from that country in order to be eligible to apply.
Applications are processed by a citizenship by investment unit, a dedicated government authority within the Ministry of Finance that is responsible for the management of the program. Processing times for applications is currently three months from the receipt of a fully completed application.
