Dominica Citizenship by Investment

The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme grants citizenship to investors and their families in exchange for investment in a national fund or real estate.  The Programme grants citizenship for life, and the possibility of passing it on to future generations. Beneficiaries of the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme are not liable to taxation in Dominica on any worldwide income unless one decides to reside there; new citizens are also exempt from tax on wealth, inheritance or capital gains tax. 

Citizenship by investment in Dominica is available through two options. The first is by making an economic contribution (donation) to the country under the government’s investor visa programme, while the second is through real estate investment.
