This option requires investors to purchase ownership in properties that have been approved by the government of Dominica to qualify for this program. Often, luxury hotels, condos, or other accommodations qualify. The minimum amount required for a single applicant is $200,000, which must be held for at least 3 years until it can be sold. Please note that the holding period is 5 years if the new buyer shall qualify for citizenship.
The unique aspect of this investment type is that the $200,000 minimum stands for an applicant and spouse, as well as a family of any size. There are additional government fees and due diligence fees that exist on a per-person basis. Due diligence fees are $7,500 for the primary investor, and an additional $4,000 for a spouse, each child aged 16 or older, or other dependents aged 16 or older. Government fees start at $25,000 for the primary applicant and rise with each additional person listed on the application as well.
