DOMINICA
Named “the Nature Island” for its unspoiled natural beauty, Dominica is arguably the most breathtaking island in the Caribbean, boasting one of the best standards of living in the region.

WHY CHOOSE DOMINICA? 

Officially the Commonwealth of Dominica, this beautiful island boasts pristine sandy beaches, lush green mountains, acres of unspoiled tropical rain forests, and some of the best diving and hiking in the Caribbean. A diverse blend of English, French, African and Carib peoples and cultures, Dominica is a politically and economically stable state with the lowest crime rate in the region. The Economic Citizenship Program offers applicants a wealth of benefits and privileges, including: 

  • No physical residency requirements;
  • Inclusion of dependent children up to 18 years old;
  • Inclusion of unmarried daughters under 18 living with and fully supported by the main applicant;
  • Inclusion of dependent parents/grand parents over 65 years old;
  • No minimum level of education required;
  • No management experience required;
  • Visa-free travel to around 70 countries including the UK, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Turkey;
  • No taxes for non-residents;
  • Dominica recognizes dual citizenship so you can retain your current nationality.

To qualify for the Dominica Economic Citizenship Program, applicants need to:
  • Be of outstanding character;
  • Hold no criminal record;
