About Dominica

The Commonwealth of Dominica is an island country in the Lesser Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean Sea. It is called the Nature Island of the Caribbean because of its well-preserved natural landscapes — including rainforests, waterfalls, hot springs, and paradisiac beaches. With an area of 750 km2, the Commonwealth of Dominica borders the French territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Its capital is the urban settlement of Roseau. Because it was a British colony until the mid-19th century, the official language of the island is English. Being part of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union, Dominica’s official currency is Eastern Caribbean Dollar, which is pegged to the US dollar at a fixed rate. The island is a unitary parliamentary republic. It’s also one of the least populated places in the world with around 73,500 inhabitants.

How obtain a Dominica passport

  • Get in touch with Second Passport: Because the Citizenship by Investment Unit does not accept direct submissions, only authorized agents can help you apply for the Dominica passport under the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program. As one of the top licensed agencies, Second Passport can provide guidance and assistance for you to easily collect all the documents required by the government of Dominica in order to start your application. If documents need to be translated, we can help with that, too. In all cases, our visa and passport experts will make sure that only valid documents are submitted, so that your application is not denied or delayed by lack of compliance with the Dominica government’s requirements in terms of documentation.
  • Submit the due diligence and processing fees: Your Dominica passport price starts with the processing fees at the time of the application. The application process can’t go ahead without due diligence so this must be paid, too. Any other expenditures should be carried out only after the Dominica authorities request them via mail. This means that you won’t have to pay for the Dominica passport price fully until you’ve got the green light to proceed.
  • Make an investment and acquire the Dominica citizenship: To obtain your Dominica passport by investment, you must choose a project to fund in the context of a donation or invest in a property approved and promoted by the government of Dominica. It’s important that you receive a document as proof of this transaction, such as a Sales and Purchase Agreement in case of investment in real estate. This will be necessary to prove your investment to the government at the time of application for citizenship. Your Dominica citizenship is valid from the time you receive your Certificate of Naturalization as a result of the donation or investment.
  • Let us do the rest: Second Passport is an authorized agency that can easily take charge of your Dominica passport from the application process to the delivery stage.
