THE US Government kicked off praise for Dominica with a spokesman offering his country’s congratulations saying “The people of Dominica exemplify strength, perseverance, and determination”… “We look forward to working together to strengthen prosperity in Dominica and throughout the region”

Dominica has also been the centre of attention, as it offers one of the oldest and highest ranking CBI programmes in the world, at the recent International Real Estate Investment Show (IREIS) held in Abu Dhabi. Two of Dominica’s major real estate projects will be completed in 2019, Jungle Bay Eco Villas and Spa and The Anichi Resort and Spa. Both offer superb, safe opportunities to secure 2nd citizenship for individuals and their families.

The UAE, which hosts more than 8 million (88%) expatriates, is an ideal hub for second citizenship and residency prospects for countries in Europe, America, Canada, the Caribbean and Australia - who attract wealthy investors and skilled immigrants through business and investment immigration programmes offered to boost their economic growth. The UAE residents from Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, India and Pakistan have increased demand for Caribbean citizenship to 51 per cent, especially to Dominica, Grenada, Antigua & Barbuda, St. Lucia and St. Kitts & Nevis.

Dominica has earned even more international recognition for its CBI programme and has won a myriad of awards including Best Caribbean Citizenship Programme at the recent Russian Global Citizen Awards. In addition, the island was ranked number one in a special independent study – the 2018 CBI Index – for a second consecutive year. The annual report, produced by experts at the Financial Times’ Professional Wealth Management magazine, evaluates CBI jurisdictions against seven key pillars. Dominica took first place scoring top results in five of the seven areas measured, including due diligence, affordability, ease of processing, citizenship timeline and the absence of travel and residency requirements. Just one of the above would be more than enough to encourage individuals and their families to choose Dominica as a safe, secure option for 2nd Citizenship. With ongoing international recognition and praise from professionals all over the world there is really only one choice to make. Join with Dominica and have the added bonus of benefiting from this small but forthright country’s plan to become the World’s first climate resilient country.
