|The Dominica Economic Citizenship Program started in 1991 in order to assist investment into schooling, medical care, as well as farming and the like. Residence in Dominica is not needed when it comes to citizenship, and presently the procedure requires around five to eight months.
Citizenship of Dominica provides protection your household during economic adversity and political conflict. Furthermore, it provides visa-free travel to more than ninety nations around the world, including the Schengen Zone countries.
As soon as acquired, Dominica’s citizenship is lifelong, with passports legitimate for ten years, and they are readily renewed.
Prior to acquiring citizenship, a financial donation needs to be done by means of a straight non-refundable transaction for the government. An individual candidate is instructed to contribute $100,000 US and a household of 4 is required to make a contribution of $200,000 US.
Candidates and dependents above sixteen years of age must cover due diligence, security and history affirmation costs, which will differ according to the nature, nationality and country of residence. The duration of background records searches can be ranging from four to twelve weeks, with fees ranging up to $10,000 US.
Following evaluation of application by Financial Services Unit (FSU), which in turn is after the due diligence checks and report, the candidate pays the investment and participates in the required appointment carried out with a government designated panel or committee members. Interviews tend to be carried out in Dominica but sometimes may be arranged in various cities worldwide.
Candidates and their dependents who’ve already been rejected a visa to nations that Dominica enjoys visa-free entry cannot submit an application for this program except if they acquire a visa in advance.
Dual citizenship is permitted and people who won’t be residing in Dominica (for taxation reasons) will not be susceptible to personal income-tax.
