About Dominica

When you get through with your Dominica citizenship, you get the many benefits of a second passport and full rights as a Dominica citizen and you also expand your residency options. While all the residency requirements are waived under the Commonwealth of Dominica Citizenship program, you do have the option of living on the Nature Island — Dominica.

Dominica is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea. It is one of the larger islands in the Lesser Antilles but is has one of the smallest populations, last estimated at 70,000. It is a peaceful, laid back Caribbean island.

This beautiful island is famously referred to as the Nature Island of the Caribbean. Dominica is a mountainous island covered in lush green vegetation. The islands heavy rainfall supplies 365 rivers, many waterfalls and an underground water table with its supply of fresh water year round.

The many rivers and other water features in Dominica are notable major attractions. The island is also known for its hot springs, the second largest boiling lake in the world, and resident population of Sperm whales, and a vibrant and healthy marine environment. Some of the best diving in the Caribbean is found in the waters off the Nature isle. In addition to the natural features, the flora and fauna provide natural habitats for a wide variety of animal and plant species. Dominica is the home of the Sisserou Parrot, found only in Dominica.

Dominica is one of the few countries with a living population of indigenous Kalinago (Carib) Indians, descendents from South American Indians. Today, there is a population of 3000 Kalinago Indians residing on a reserve, where the culture and lifestyle of the tribe is displayed publicly as tourist attractions.

It is a country that embraces a clean green living. All of its resources, forests and natural habitats are conserved and utilized in only the most sustainable ways. This is an island where the government and the people focus on conserving all the island’s natural resources, and all public actions are carefully assessed for their impacts on the current and future health of the environment, while building up new economies around sustainable agriculture and ecotourism.

The economy of Dominica depends mostly on tourism and agriculture for revenue, but in more recent times, the offshore financial service sector and the Dominica Economic Citizenship program/ Dominica passport program has been aggressively promoted to successfully diversify the country efforts for generating revenue.

The lifestyle is laid back and very conducive to retirement living. The cost of living is relatively low, since the Dominica currency the EC dollar is valued at 2.71 to 1 us and average between 3 and 4 dollars to the pound and Euro. The health care services in Dominica are up to date, and the local infrastructure is modern and upgraded to international standards.
