The country launched CBI Programme in 1993, and it is one of the longest-running and fastest CBI in the world. Interested applicants can apply for citizenship by investing a certain amount in a government-authorized fund or real estate.

Dominica grants alternative citizenship following multiple due-diligence checks, which keeps the security of the country intact.

After attaining the citizenship of Dominica, the applicant can gain access to a huge range of benefits similar to individuals who were born in the country. Citizenship will also ensure access to all the rights, responsibilities and privileges defined by the Law of Dominica.

The citizenship by investment programme has been crowned as the world’s number one for five consecutive years by the CBI Index released by the PWM Magazine of Financial Times. It is regarded as the safest, most secure, and most straightforward CBI Programme globally.
