Dominica CBI Programme

Launched in 1993, Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme has been ranked as the number one CBI initiative for five consecutive years by the CBI Index. This is a publication by the Financial Times’s Professional Wealth Management (PWM) magazine.

 
 
 
The CBI scheme focuses on the overall quality and integrity of its applicants, only accepting individuals of outstanding character and repute. To ensure credible persons of excellent standing are granted citizenship, comprehensive due diligence checks are performed on all applicants over 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 opportunities. Nicknamed the “Nature Island”, it is also one of the most beautiful places on earth. Dominica boasts a pristine coastline, acres of unspoiled tropical rainforest, incredible marine biodiversity and a number of natural hot springs thanks to its volcanic origin.

Dominican Passport

Once an individual’s application for citizenship by investment is approved, an economic citizen can apply for passport at the Passport Office.

 

What are the Benefits of a Dominica Passport?

Dominican passports are CARICOM passports that are issued to citizens of Dominica for international travel. Dominica passport holders enjoy visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to over 160 countries and territories worldwide.

Ordinary Dominican passports are valid for 10 years if issued to a person aged 16 or over and are valid for five years for children under the age of 16. They can be renewed at the Passport Office in Roseau (Dominica’s capital city) or at a Dominica High Commission, Embassy, or Consulate.

 

What is the Dominica Passport Application Process?

The passport application process is separate from the citizenship by investment process, and requires the applicant to present a number of documents, including, but not limited to, a certified copy of the applicant’s Certificate of Naturalisation – the document that is issued to an economic citizen at the end of the citizenship by investment process.

It is possible for an economic citizen to appoint a third party to apply on his or her behalf. Applications for a passport can be submitted as soon as citizenship is received.

 

How to Re-Apply for a Dominica Passport

Every time Dominican passport holders re-apply for a passport (for example, because their old passport has expired), they must present their old Dominica passport. This will be cancelled upon issuance of the new passport.
