In 1993, the Commonwealth of Dominica introduced its citizenship-by-investment program to encourage foreign investment and significantly expand business opportunities. The program enables applicants to obtain Dominican citizenship within 3-4 months. Known as “The Nature Island of the Caribbean” due to its lush scenery, Dominica is famous for its tropical climate, wildlife, breathtaking rivers and waterfalls.
As a citizen of Dominica, you gain visa-free access to over 130 countries, including all of the Schengen region , the United Kingdom and most British Commonwealth member countries, making the Dominican citizenship an extremely attractive choice.
Furthermore, obtaining foreign visas will be a very smooth and easy process with your Dominican passport.
Dominican passport holders benefit from an attractive tax regime: no wealth, gift, inheritance, foreign income or capital gains tax, as well as no personal income tax. You will also have access to generous incentive packages, including corporate tax incentives, full exemption from import duties, tax relief benefits and export allowances.
Furthermore, the Dominican currency is fixed to USD and there is no restriction on the repatriation of profits and imported capital. The country also offers duty-free trading throughout the Caribbean.
The program allows your spouse, dependent children (up to the age 25), dependent parents (over the age of 55) and siblings to apply to obtain their Dominican passports along with you.
Dominica does not require you or your family to visit the country in order to obtain your citizenship, or reside there to maintain the citizenship status. The country also allows dual citizenship which means that there is no need to renounce your original nationality.
