Dominica Citizenship Program Application Process

As endorsed agents handling Dominica Economic Citizenship for over 20 years we are thoroughly familiar with the process to guarantee your application is processed in the most efficient, speediest manner. Though, this is not a process that can be rushed, but we will make certain that you have everything in order to ensure your application is not redirected due to incomplete requirement.

We work closely with the Ministry of Finance — Financial Services Unit FSU (who processes the application) and the Ministry of Emigration and Labor (who prepare the Certificate of Naturalization and issues the Dominica passports).

Once we have received confirmation of payments for investment fees and our fees; we will begin the Citizenship process.
