The Commonwealth of Dominica, formerly a British colony, is an island state of 750 sq. km in the Windward Islands. Dominica is an island of remarkably unspoilt beauty, where lush, green forests roll across hills that stretch from shore to shore. English is the nation’s official language, but French is also spoken widely. The country is a parliamentary democracy within the Commonwealth of Nations with the president as the head of state and the Prime Minister heading the cabinet. 

Dominica has been offering a Citizenship-by-Investment Programme since 1993, enabling HNWIs and their families to enjoy all the benefits of being Dominican, in exchange for a contribution to the government. 

Dominica boasts pristine beaches, acres of unspoiled tropical rainforests and offers some of the best diving and hiking in the Caribbean. From the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, to the development of a geothermal plant, Dominica’s philosophy is to protect and preserve its untainted and unparalleled beauty.
