News of the program of obtaining the citizenship of Dominica
The Dominica passport program is one of the most reliable and profitable: the island provides a lot of advantages both for doing business and for living in this island nation. In addition, of course, one of the main advantages of obtaining a Dominica passport is the possibility of visa-free entry to the territory of about 100 countries, including the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and also the countries participating in the Schengen Agreement.

DOMINICA: “THE CARIBBEAN ISALAND OF NATURE”

Dominica is known for its incredible natural beauty. On this stunning island you can find mountains and rainforests, rivers and waterfalls, magnificent beaches and a unique thermally active lake. The island is considered to be one of the best places to live: in addition to the extraordinarily beautiful natural landscapes, citizens of Dominica have the opportunity to live in a country with a high level of security, good ecology and a favorable social environment. Dominica is a politically stable state that refrains from any participation in international conflicts (thanks to this, citizens are not subject to restrictions and sanctions and can visit any countries without problems).
 
According to the head of the Department for the Granting of Citizenship through Investments (CIU) in the Commonwealth of Dominica, today this island nation is the carrier of a platinum brand in the Caribbean. Earlier in this capacity was the program of Saint Kitts and Nevis, but now it is Dominica who can offer the best conditions. The Dominica program has a good reputation, and after improving the procedure, its prestige has increased markedly.
 

THE MAIN REASONS OF OBTAINING THE PASSPORT OF DOMINICA

Along with such obvious reasons as the possibility of visa-free entry to a huge number of countries and obtaining benefits in doing business, the desire to acquire a second citizenship is often due to other important reasons, including:
 
Unstable political situation or military conflict in his native country. If it is necessary to leave the homeland due to the exacerbation of the political situation or the outbreak of hostilities, the citizenship of Dominica will ensure living in a safe country with an excellent climate.
 
Loss of first citizenship. Having a Dominica passport in the situation of losing the citizenship of your native country will help to avoid obtaining the status of a stateless person and the associated problems.
 
Taxation of foreign assets in the country of first citizenship. As a rule, paying taxes incurs significant expenses. The presence of a passport of Dominica allows you to avoid taxation of foreign income: there is no such practice in the island nation.
 
Frequent extension of the main passport. Some states require quite frequent renewal of the passport (often the interval is 5 years). The passport of Dominica has a 10-year validity period and is extended on a common basis with local residents.
 
Change the name and surname. When obtaining the citizenship of Dominica there is no need to indicate the real name and surname, therefore it is possible to change them. An important point: in those states where there is a ban on second citizenship, changing the name and surname may incur criminal penalties.
 
Criminal or political prosecution in the home state. In such a situation, having a Dominica passport will ensure legal security for your assets.
The presence of barriers to doing business. Citizenship of a country that is unfavorable from the standpoint of financial security may make it impossible to conduct business. The way out of the situation will be the passport of Dominica: this island nation is one of the countries with high financial reliability, which opens up broad opportunities for international business.
