Citizenship by Investment

Dual citizenship from the Commonwealth of Dominica offers the region’s most affordable programme providing numerous business and residential advantages via two streamlined investment options.

Established in 1993, the Commonwealth of Dominica provides a successful and highly trusted Citizenship by Investment Programme; it offers investors dual citizenship, visa-free access to 120 countries, minimal taxation, is a signatory of double taxation treaties with the USA and CARICOM, full residence status, no residency requirements and a currency pegged to the US Dollar – fulfilled through a confidential 3-4 month application process.

Additional business advantages provided by the Commonwealth of Dominica include no restriction on the repatriation of profits, full exemption from import duties, corporate tax incentives and tax relief benefits. To qualify for their Citizenship by Investment Programme, investors can choose to make either a government fund contribution of as little as $100,000, or an investment in property to the minimum value of $200,000.

Investment Options

This highly affordable method of acquiring Citizenship also makes a significant contribution to Dominica’s significant and transparent investment programme. This continues to develop a resilient, long term and sustainable portfolio of infrastructure projects designed to lesson the effects of Climate Change. New and improved schools, roads, hospitals, a new international airport, as well as the promotion of a burgeoning offshore sector all benefit from the National Development Fund.

About the Commonwealth of Dominica


Located in the Eastern Caribbean, the Commonwealth of Dominica, known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean, is crowned by high mountains rising from its emerald green rainforests. Its 750 sq kilometres of rich verdant land hosts rare flora and fauna, magnificent waterfalls, 350 rivers, the world's second largest hot spring, Boiling Lake and some of the finest scuba diving sites in the world. Dominica experiences a temperate climate all year round though the impact of Summer storms in the region can be felt on the island.


The Commonwealth of Dominica is a member of the OECS and a parliamentary democracy. Its economy benefits from the government's drive to promote its burgeoning eco tourism sector. Further diversification from its historical dependence on agriculture includes the development of gothermal energy resources, climate resilient construction, a medical education sector and an offshore financial industry. The island uses the East Caribbean Dollar and has access to an educated workforce of 95% English literacy.
