What Our Experts Say

The beautiful island of Dominica, otherwise known as the “Nature Island” has been offering their citizenship programme for some time and the programme is very well respected. Similar in terms of benefits to the St Kitts and Antigua programmes, Dominica currently has an edge on both - the cost of qualifying. Dominica has recently signed an agreement with Schengen, and nationals of Dominica may now travel to through the Schengen area as well as other first world countries. This newly categorised passport is now comparable to St. Kitts and Antigua but the qualifying cost is much lower, however, is anticipated to rise in the near future. This programme will suit those seeking citizenship and a second passport in 3 months.
