What is the Dominica citizenship?

Dominica citizenship is the status of a person recognized under the law of Dominica as being a legal member of the Commonwealth of Dominica (do NOT confuse with the Dominica Republic) and vested with the rights, duties and privileges of being a Dominican citizen. Citizens of Dominica can count on the help and protection of the Commonwealth of Dominica either directly or any diplomatic institutions of the country abroad. As of January 24, 2019, Dominica’s diplomatic missions operate in 7 countries: USA, Canada, UK, China, Belgium, Cuba and the UAE. Additionally, Dominica has consular officers in various other countries.

With Dominica citizenship obtained, a person has the right to apply for a Dominica passport and other necessary documents: social security number, driver’s license, tax number, etc. By investing in Anichi Resort & Spa, you will receive Dominica citizenship and a full range of citizenship services that may be available to a citizen of Dominica.
