Dominica CBI Programme

  • Developed in 1993 and reformed in 2014, the Commonwealth of Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme has been ranked as the number one CBI initiative for three consecutive years by the CBI Index, a publication of the Financial Times’ Professional Wealth Management (PWM) magazine. The programme focuses on the overall quality and integrity of its applicants, only accepting individuals of outstanding character and repute. To ensure only credible persons of excellent standing are granted citizenship, comprehensive due diligence checks are performed on all applicants older than 18 years of age.

    For those who meet Dominica’s citizenship requirements, the idyllic Caribbean island offers one of the best standards of living in the region. Dominica is politically and economically stable, with a low crime rate and rich investment opportunity. Nicknamed the “Nature Island”, it is also one of the most beautiful places on earth, with a pristine coastline, acres of unspoiled tropical rainforest, incredible marine biodiversity, and a number of natural hot springs thanks to its volcanic origin.
