Dominica delivers on due diligence
The Dominica CBI Programme focuses on its applicants’ overall quality and integrity, only accepting outstanding characters and reputed individuals. It’s important to ensure that only credible persons are granted citizenship. Therefore, comprehensive due diligence checks are performed on all applicants 18 years of age or older.
Aside from its vetting approach, Dominica’s CBIU also publishes its economic citizens’ names in the official quarterly gazette and provides a detailed budget of where CBI funds are invested. Revenue generated under the programme is utilised to build climate-resilient housing, revolutionise healthcare infrastructure and construct the country’s first international airport.
Dominica’s quest to achieve climate resilience
Dominica has taken a multifaceted approach to ensure climate resilience. This includes a strong focus on ecotourism and investment in eco-resorts. In addition to funding conservation programmes, Dominica has also banned single-use plastic. The conservation programmes include the Mountain Chicken Recovery Programme and the Dominica Sperm Whale Project. Another goal is to be reliant on renewable energy by 2030.

Most acquired CBI programmes
As a matter of interest, St Kitts and Nevis CBI and Portugal’s Golden Visa were the most acquired.

Executives have high expectations for Saint Lucia’s CBI programme for 2023. The programme has ramped up its processing capacity as well as reduced its asking price.
