Dominica Widens ‘Dependant’ Clause Under its Citizenship by Investment Programme

Last month, the Commonwealth of Dominica announced notable changes to its Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme and widened the scope of eligible ‘dependants’ and post-citizenship additions.

The changes allow siblings aged 25 or under to be included in a citizenship application if they meet certain requirements. The expanded definition also includes adult children aged 18 to 30, disabled adult children, parents, grandparents, spouses of eligible parents and grandparents, and siblings. The main applicant or their spouse would need to be supporting the aforementioned dependants substantially.
