Program Requirements

The Dominica citizenship by investment program is extremely popular with entrepreneurs, investors, and families thanks to its speed, short investment hold, and inclusive investment combination. To qualify to leverage this opportunity, clients must satisfy all of the following:

  • Proof of Age: The main applicant must be at least 18, although the Dominica citizenship by investment program does allow for dependents as young as newborns to be added.
  • Due Diligence: Applicants must provide a birth certificate, passport from their country of origin, a clean criminal background check, and establish legal ownership over their investment funds as well as proof the funds originate from legal sources.
  • Investment Tolerance: The Dominica CIP requires a minimum cash investment of $200,000, which increases to $200,000 when opting for the real estate investment route.
  • Investment Hold: With one of the shortest hold periods, real estate investments for the acquisition of citizenship in Dominica must be held for only three years. Afterwards, you are free to sell without affecting citizenship.
  • Mandatory Interviews: All applicants are required to complete interviews – which can be done remotely – to prove their source of funds and eligibility. It is an extra layer of due diligence to check that candidates are legitimate and are viable candidates.
  • Health: Applicants must be of good health to eliminate burdens for the country’s health care system. Applicants are required to provide a medical certificate as a means to establish their health status.
  • Physical Residency: While you will have the right to live in Dominica full-time, there is no requirement to travel to Dominica at any time.
