Foreigners can attain a second Dominican passport from the country through their citizenship by investment Dominica program, only via the licensed authorized Agent. Applicant must be at least 18 years old, with a good repute and health. Application can be accomplished remotely, without a need of visiting the island. The whole process is quick and straightforward lasting around 3-4 months.

Investors must comply with a certain criterion, which includes contributing to the development of Dominica by donating to the special fund or investing in a real estate with specific thresholds and pass the Due Diligence checks. Investors’ family members are also eligible to apply. Citizenship is granted for the life-time and it can be inherited by further generations.

Providing false information or being convicted in criminal activities may be the reason for annulling the citizenship and the alternate passport of the investor might be revoked. Applicants, who pose potential national security risk or have been denied an entry visa to the countries with which Dominica has a visa-waiver agreement, cannot qualify for the Dominica citizenship by investment scheme.
