Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program (CBI) was established in 1993 and is one of the longest, running programmes in the world. In Dominica, the Citizenship by Investment Programme is managed by the Citizenship by Investment Unit – a government authority. During its 25 years of existence, the programme has been refined and enhanced to meet the evolving needs of the market, and to strengthen its due diligence and approval process. Some of these improvements have been done in isolation by the unit and with other government entities.
The Government of Dominica charges citizenship fees, which must be paid along with the purchase of real estate when filing citizenship applications.
