Why Dominica Citizenship?
This question may have or may not have crossed your mind recently. This piece is intended on giving more information to those who are considering making a move to Dominica via this type of offer.
The Commonwealth of Dominica is offering Economic Citizenship with PR, Citizenship and Passports to a certain amount of qualified applicants, which is done so through Government sponsored investment legislation.
Dominica can offer those who are interested, the possibility of obtaining 100% legal second citizenship and to get your Dominica Passport rather quickly (about 3 months).
Dominica has been running with this program for more than 15 years already, together with certain other countries like Belize and Grenada. Due to certain corruption issues and scandals, they were forced to abandon these programs. Dominica has a transparent, clear and high level of requirements, which still allows you the opportunity of becoming a full citizen (Dominica and of the Caribbean Community – CARICOM).
A word of warning needs to go out to those who are looking to get a legal second citizenship or second passport. In this day and age, you will find many offers ranging from 5,000 – 35,000 Euros for quick citizenship programs in countries like the EU, Bolivia, Guyana, Surinam, etc. None of these will offer you legal citizenship in a short period of time, because of the fact that no other possibility (legal) exists, other than long term residency in these places.
Should you end up paying someone for this type of citizenship program, you most likely will be issued with a passport that has been filled out by a corrupt official or a stolen blank passport. If you actually get it right to get this type of passport without being arrested, you will not be able to renew it once it expires.
On the other side of the coin
Dominica does in fact offer you 100% full citizenship, which includes the right to travel, live, vote, open and run a business of your choice, etc. You will also get a certificate of Naturalization, similar to the type that people receive when they are granted naturalization in Canada or USA. You will also be able to renew this passport in Dominica or at any High Commission or Embassy.
