Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit in Operation

The Commonwealth of Dominica has recently been on the news as a result of the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria, which made landfall on the island on the night between 18 and 19 September 2017. Yet, in the midst of destruction and hurt, Dominica has once again proven to the world just how resilient the island can be.

People have mobilised to provide aid to their neighbours, employees have hurried back to work, and collaboration with international aid workers is a priority.

Dominica’s CBI Unit is running, ensuring that applicants do not experience delays

Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit exemplifies this spirit of action and dedication. Days after the hurricane, the Unit is running, and processing applications submitted by its many prospective economic citizens.

Ambassador Emmanuel Nanthan, who heads the Unit, was personally processing a number of applications together with the Committee, ensuring that applicants do not experience delays. Dominica is celebrated for its ability to process applications in three months or less, despite retaining one of the most stringent due diligence mechanisms in the realm of citizenship by investment.

Foreign investors looking to obtain a highly-valued citizenship, and to partake in a streamlined citizenship process, can look to Dominica as their jurisdiction of choice. Dominica offers applicants the opportunity to become citizens of the island in return for a US$100,000 donation to the Economic Diversification Fund, or, alternatively, a US$200,000 investment in pre-approved real estate.
