Become a Citizen of Dominica Through the Citizenship by Investment Program

Dominica runs one of the world’s most reputable Citizenship By Investment (CBI) Programs, which offers prudent investors the ability to access the world through a trusted and affordable route to a second citizenship. The CBI Program of Dominica has been operating since 1993. This highly reputable program invites investors of good character to make an economic contribution to the country. In exchange, should they meet strict legal and other requirements, the applicant and their family can obtain full citizenship of the Commonwealth of Dominica.


To qualify for citizenship of the Commonwealth of Dominica under the Citizenship by Investment Program, the Government requires either a contribution made into the Government Fund amounting to USD100,000 depending on the number of dependents included in the application or an investment in designated Real Estate with a value of at least USD 200,000. Additional payments for any dependents included in an application, due diligence fees, government fees and other fees are also payable. All applications for citizenship should be directed through an Authorised Agent. The Authorised Agent will assist you with an application together with all the required legal and other documents.


The Citizenship by Investment Unit (CBIU) is the Government Authority that deals with all matters regarding Citizenship by Investment in the Commonwealth of Dominica. The Government has established the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CBIU) within the Ministry of Finance to promote and administer the Citizenship by Investment Program. The Unit will be dedicated to the effective management and processing of the applications that are received by the Government.

The Unit exercises strict regulatory controls over the Program and is dedicated to streamlining the process for applicants seeking to obtain the citizenship of Dominica. The Unit ensures the highest professional standards and is committed to strict enforcement of the regulations. The Unit is headed by the Director of the CBIU, who is supported by Senior Examiners, Examiners, and administrative staff. For further information, here are the contact details for the CBIU.a
