Under current regulations, to qualify for citizenship of the Commonwealth of Dominica under its Citizenship by Investment Program, the Government requires either a contribution made into the Government Fund amounting to US$ 100 000 depending on the number of dependents included in the application or an investment in designated Real Estate with a value of at least US$ 200 000. Additional payments for any dependents included in an application, due diligence fees, government fees and other fees are also payable.
|Package A: Single Applicant||A non-refundable investment of US$ 175 000|
|Package B: Family Application One (Applicant and spouse)||A non-refundable investment of US$ 225 000|
|Package C: Family Application Two (Applicant plus spouse and two children below the age of 18)||A non-refundable investment of US$ 250 000|
To qualify for citizenship of Dominica under the Real Estate Option under the Citizenship by Investment Program, an applicant must purchase authorized real estate to the minimum value of US$ 200 000.
Following approval of a real estate investment application, the following Government Fees are payable:
- US$ 50 000 for the Main Applicant
- US$ 25 000 for the Spouse
- US$ 20 000 for each dependent of the main applicant under the age of 18
- US$ 50 000 for each dependent of the main applicant aged 18-25 years.
Given that the application procedure under this option entails the purchase of real estate, this can prolong the processing time, which is subject to the chosen property.
The real estate must be held for 3 years and may be eligible for re-sale under the Citizenship by Investment Programme after 5 years from the original purchase date.
