Legal basis

The Citizenship by Investment Program is set out in the regulations published pursuant to Section 101 of the Constitution and Sections 8 and 20 (1) of the Citizenship Act. This act stipulates that persons who have been a continuous resident in Dominica for five (5) years could apply for naturalization and may be eligible for citizenship upon the prescribed payment of fees being paid.

No applicants with criminal records will be approved for second citizenship in Dominica. All applicants must be at least 18 years old with good character and are willing to make the required investment in Dominica. The Dominica Economic Citizenship Program is a legal naturalization program based on the law & guaranteed by the Government since 1991. Your Dominica citizenship is for a lifetime and may not be revoked, regardless of changes of officials or the Dominica governmental policy.
