Dominica Citizenship by Investment Requirements 2023

We have taken the liberty to provide a fully updated list of Dominica Citizenship by Investment requirements for 2023, as well as a 2023 Compliance Guide to ensure a successful application.

Dominica Citizenship by Investment – Required Forms

This document is just what its name says; a disclosure form.

It requires you to disclose all information asked.

Therefore, if anything is unclear please let us know.

For example, question A17 at times poses difficulty. It asks for your ‘current address’. ‘Current address’ refers to the place where you are living at the time of applying.

However, this may be different from your fixed address, that is, the place you consider your real home (which is what question A18 is asking).

Many times, A17 and A 18 are the same, therefore you simply insert the same information.

Additionally, questions C73 and C74 may need clarification.

Our advice is to speak with your spouse and get the information. Do not leave this section blank.

If you are single or divorced, then C73 and C74 are ‘not applicable’. So, in this case, simply insert ‘Not Applicable’. Again, do not leave the section blank.

REMEMBER: The D1 does not have to be filled for children 0 to 15 years. However, it is required for everyone 16 years and older.

When getting fingers printed, only a government sanctioned authority can be used, and this must be done in the presence of a fingerprinting officer.

We are aware that some countries insist on their own ‘fingerprinting form’, and as a result will not do the fingerprints on the D2. There is no need to worry about this, as this is acceptable.

The photo glued to the form must not be older than 6 months.

Word of advice. All photos submitted must be the same.

This document is required for each person in an application…

…AND must be completed by a Registered Medical Practitioner.

SO, avoid having your document’s authenticity questioned by ensuring that Part C is fully completed.

Not only does this quicken your processing; it saves you the hassle of revisiting the doctor’s office.

Take note of the following:

  • Routine blood and urine test must be original and attached to questionnaire;
  • HIV test is not needed for children below the age of 12;
  • Immunization schedule must include diphtheria, tetanus and hepatitis.

Only persons applying under the EDF for Dominica citizenship must complete this.

Only one copy by the Main Applicant is required.

Pay Attention to Part II where you are expected to transfer donation within 30 days of Approval.

Two (2) copies must be completed for each applicant in original.

Where a child is below 16 years of age, both parents or legal guardian(s) must sign on his/her behalf.

Each copy must be original and notarized.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you may have.
