About the Citizenship by Investment Unit

About the CBIU

Introduced in 1993 by the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica, the Citizenship by Investment Programme is one of the longest running economic citizenship programmes in the world.

Throughout more than 20 years, the Government has remained firmly committed to the Programme, and has made consistent and substantive improvements to the quality of its offering.

The Government recognises that private investment has a major role to play in mobilising and realising Dominica’s potential and that the Citizenship by Investment Programme is an opportunity to encourage foreign direct investment and to facilitate the private sector in its efforts to contribute to economic development. Over time, this will result in a framework of modern, diversified, sustainable, and resilient economic structures to respond to the realities of a highly competitive global environment.

The Government is dedicated to promote the Citizenship by Investment Programme and to see the continued economic growth in Dominica. In concert with the Government, we hope that you will appreciate Dominica’s potential, and come to love our people and our way of life. We hope that you will be encouraged to participate in our Programme, and we welcome you to become part of Dominica’s global footprint.
