Dominica Citizenship Investment Options
The Citizenship by Investment Program of Dominica requires applicants to make an investment into the Dominican economy, either in the form of a contribution to the Economic Diversification Fund, or as an investment in local pre-approved real estate.
Option 1 – Government Fund
The Government Fund was established through the economic citizenship program as one component of a national capital mobilization portfolio towards an ultimate goal of national development for Dominica.
Generated funds are utilized for public and private sector projects where a need is identified. Public sector projects identified for financing under the program include (1) building of schools, (2) renovation of the hospital, (3) building of a national Sports stadium and (4) towards the promotion of the Offshore Sector. With respect to private sector projects, government emphasis is on the tourism, information technology and agricultural sectors and therefore public sector projects to be financed under the program will fall within one of these sectors.
To qualify for citizenship under this investment option, there are four investment categories with different contribution amounts, based on the number of dependents included in the application, which are as follows:
|Single Applicant||USD 100,000|
|Main Applicant and Spouse||USD 175,000|
