CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT

Dual citizenship from the Commonwealth of Dominica offers the region’s most affordable programme
providing numerous business and residential advantages via two streamlined investment options.


 

Established in 1993, the Commonwealth of Dominica provides a trusted Citizenship by Investment Programme; it offers investors dual citizenship, visa-free access to 120 countries, minimal taxation, is a signatory of double taxation treaties with the USA and CARICOM, full residence status, no residency requirements and a currency pegged to the US Dollar – fulfilled through a confidential 3-4 month application process.

Additional business advantages provided by the Commonwealth of Dominica include no restriction on the repatriation of profits, full exemption from import duties, corporate tax incentives and tax relief benefits. To qualify for their Citizenship by Investment Programme, investors can choose to make either a government fund contribution of as little as $100,000, or an investment in property to the minimum value of $200,000.

INVESTMENT OPTIONS

NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND


Government funding is a key component of the Commonwealth of Dominica’s mobilisation towards national development and a highly affordable method of acquiring citizenship. Investment will be transparently used to finance four key public sector projects; the building of schools, renovation of hospitals, residential developments and the promotion of the burgeoning offshore sector.

To be paid in US Dollars:
– $100,000 for the main applicant.
– $175,000 for an applicant and spouse.
– $175,000 for an applicant and up to two dependants under 18.
– $200,000 for an applicant, spouse and up to two dependants under 18.
– $25,000 for dependants between 18-30 or 55+.

PROPERTY CHOICES


An investment into designated real estate is an especially prudent gateway to citizenship – investors can select from several compelling income producing properties with no residency requirements. After three years of ownership a property owner can sell their property and retain their citizenship – wait five years and it is eligible for resale to another CIP applicant.

To be paid in US Dollars:
$200,000 minimum required Real Estate investment;
$25,000 for the Main Applicant;
$35,000 for the Main Applicant applying with his or her spouse;
$35,000 for a family of up to four, including the Main Applicant;
