Dominica Watches How Generations of Families Benefit from Inherited Citizenship by Investment

To obtain citizenship of the Commonwealth of Dominica is possible even if there is no previous connection with the country. Therefore, many foreigners choose the Dominican Citizenship by Investment programme. At a recent webinar, Ambassador Emmanuel Nanthan spoke about why this programme is especially suitable for families.

“Longevity of our Programme demonstrates clearly that we have a programme that is successful. [...] We have seen people becoming citizens, their children become citizens, their grandchildren, their children's children's children, and it goes on and on and on. [...] We have proven and stood the test of time - our investors know that, our agents know that, and that, I believe, is paramount to the success of our programme as well.”

Families who have already become citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica have these benefits. The government and the CBIU, in turn, have adjusted the Citizenship by Investment programme. Now even more family members of the main applicant or his(her) spouse can be considered as dependents. Plus, the minimum investment threshold has been lowered from US$200,000 to US$175,000.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit commented during the same webinar: “The issue of family is very important to us, and it is for this reason that we have also brought this onboard in our CBI programme. Recognising that, in many parts of the world, especially in the Middle East and in some parts of Asia, you have the same family structures. People look out for each other. People take care of their family, the parents and grandparents, in a very admirable manner."

The Dominican Citizenship by Investment Program has been working since 1993 and allows foreign investors to invest in the country in exchange for citizenship. Ranked #1 as the best country for CBI, Dominica has a simple three-month process honed over time and balanced by rigorous due diligence, the ambassador said.
