New rules for Dominica CIP makes it easier for your family to gain dual citizenship

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Dominica is one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world, this volcanically active island located in the lesser Antilles is known as the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean,” and is largely covered by thick rainforest and spotted with hot “sulphur” springs.

Created as a stimulus for domestic economic growth in 1993, Dominica citizenship-by-investment is one of the most affordable legal program available to the global community. And with the new regulations, it might be one of the easiest place to invest in dual citizenship for you and your family!


Effective as of December 2016, Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme recognizes children of up to 28 years of age and parents of applicants with over 55 years of age fully supported by the main applicant. No longer family members need to submit multiple applications; the new regulation allows the main applicant to include all family members that falls into the requirements and age into his or her application.

Dominica is the only place in the Caribbean who is a part of Citizenship by Investment Programme that allows for such a wide age frame. Normally, most of the islands only allow for dependents of up to 26 years of age and parents of over 65 years to be included in the application.

The government processing fees for Dominica Citizenship though investment in real estate is as follows:

SPOUSE: US$32,250

Age < 18 US$ 23,270 per person

Age 18-28 or 55+ US$28,750 per person

In case of real estate investment, government processing fees will apply. For family of 4 the application fee is US$75,000 and for a family of 6 is US$ 100,000.


Averaging only 50,000 visitors a year, tourism is still in its infancy in Dominica, where the principal economic generator continues to be in the agricultural sector. If you enjoy adventure and an active lifestyle, then Dominica may be for you and is now much easier than ever if you’re looking for a family escape or to gain dual citizenship in a Caribbean country for your whole family.


  • A Dominica passport allows visa-free travel to more than 135 countries, including the United Kingdom and Caribbean and Commonwealth nations.
  • The island imposes no residency requirements and no income, wealth or inheritance taxes.
  • There is currently no mandatory interview requirement for the Dominican Citizenship by Investment Program; however, an interview may be required at the discretion of the government.

The granting of citizenship is at the sole discretion of the government. There is no guarantee that the applicant will be approved.
