Foreigners can apply for Dominica citizenship by making a contribution to the Economic Diversification Fund (EDF).
The Economic Diversification Fund was established through the Citizenship by Investment Programme as one component of a national capital mobilization portfolio, with the goal of national development for Dominica.
Generated funds are utilised for public and private sector projects where a need is identified. Public sector projects identified for financing under the Programme include, but are not limited to:
The building of schools
The building of a national sports stadium
The promotion of the offshore sector. With respect to private sector projects, the Government’s focus is on tourism, information technology, and agriculture.
Step 1: The first step for applying for citizenship is to choose an agent from the List of Authorised Agent. Applications for citizenship cannot be submitted directly to the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CBIU) and must only be handled by an Authorised Agent.
Step 2: The second step is to contact your chosen Authorised Agent, who will provide you with assistance in preparing your forms and documentation for submission to the CBIU.
Step 3: Your application will be vetted through a thorough due diligence background check which will verify the information that you have provided. The CBIU will consider the file in the light of the due diligence report and will make a recommendation on your application to the Government.
Step 4: When all of your forms are complete, and documents collected, your Authorised Agent will submit your application to the CBIU and will liaise with the CBIU on your behalf.
Step 5: If your application was approved in principle, the letter issued by the CBIU will also instruct you to make the contribution payment (for the Economic Diversification Fund option) or to complete the payment of the real estate property.
