Alternative Passports

The Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica has created an Economic Citizenship Program to channel capital into its national development (funding schools, hospital renovations, a sports stadium, and other public sector projects).  The Economic Citizenship Program allows applicants to become citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica, without a residency requirement.  Once Citizenship is granted, passports may be easily obtained. Benefits of the Commonwealth of Dominica Citizenship: 

  • Citizenship is in a British Commonwealth country.
  • Dominica citizenship is for life and not revocable.
  • There is no residency requirement under the Economic Citizenship program.
  • Dominica recognizes dual citizenship, and does not require people to renounce their current citizenship.
  • Dominican passport-holders enjoy visa-free travel to many countries worldwide, such as UK, Sweden, and Switzerland. Complete EU access is applied for and expected soon. Visa for Canada is required.
  • Off-shore bank accounts, investments, and Dominica-incorporated companies give unique opportunities for business and tax planning.

To qualify under the Economic Citizenship Program, the following criteria must be met:

  • The principal applicant must be over 21 years of age.
  • To qualify as dependents, children must be under age 18 and unmarried.
  • Applicants must make a one-time payment (either Single or Family category ) to the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
  • Applicants must pass a Due Diligence examination, and have no criminal record.
  • Applicants must complete a medical examination.
  • The principal applicant must have a basic knowledge of English.  However, translators may be used at the interview.
  • The principal applicant must attend an interview in Dominica (or arrange for the interviewing committee to travel to his home country to conduct the interview).
