The Dominica Citizenship By Investment Program is one of the oldest and most well established CBI programs. The program has been running successfully since 1993 and consistently voted the best country in the world for citizenship by investment. Through the Economic Citizenship Program, applicants and their families can obtain citizenship in Dominica within 6 months without being required to actually visit the country.
Successful applicants will benefit from Visa-Free travel to 123 countries which includes access to the Schengen Area, visa- free travel to the UK, Ireland, Singapore, Malaysia & Russia. Citizens can also enjoy a host of other benefits such as no taxation on foreign income and unique investment opportunities.
The Economic Development Fund (EDF) was created by Dominica’s government in order to support socio-economic initiatives that can drive national development. Applicants are eligible to apply for citizenship under Dominica’s CBI program after making a minimum qualifying financial contribution to the EDF.
The money generated from the fund is then distributed between the public and private sector in areas that require financial support. The fund helps to build new schools, renovate hospitals and invest in key areas of business in Dominica such as tourism, IT and agriculture.
The non-refundable contribution is a effectively a donation to the government fund. However it is an investment in the sense that investors are awarded citizenship in Dominica in exchange for their economic contribution to the country.
The main applicant must demonstrate that they are at least eighteen years old; in good health and have enough funds to afford such an investment. The source of funds must be legal, and in order to ensure the requirements listed above are fully adhered to, the Government of Dominica subjects applicants to strict due diligence procedures. Supporting documentation will be required.
Lincoln Global Partners charges a service fee which includes all legal & processing fees for your application.
