Dominica has no capital gains tax, global tax, or inheritance tax. Further, as long as citizens never earn income in Dominica, they will never be required to pay income taxes in Dominica.
Best Value for Money
Dominica’s citizenship programme offers the same benefits as other Caribbean programmes, but at a fraction of the cost. At a donation cost of US $100,000, or a minimum investment of US $200,000 in real estate, it is by far the most affordable citizenship programme in the world. Further, the programme allows for applicants to apply with multiple dependants on their application – children under age 28, and parents/grandparents over age 55.
Quick and Simple Process
Attaining Dominican citizenship is a simple, three-month process that never requires an applicant to reside in Dominica, or ever visit Dominica. It also carries no interview or languages requirements, and does not require applicants to demonstrate any minimum net worth.
Safe and Secure
Funds invested into real estate projects in Dominica are kept in an Escrow account accessed only by the Government and the Developer. Funds released to the developer must be approved by the government for work actually completed. As such, the government ensures funds are not misused.
Allows Dual Citizenship
Dominica’s programme allows for multiple citizenships and does not at any time notify an applicant’s home country about his/her citizenship.
Right to Resell Investment
Investors in real estate can resell and recover their investment costs after three years, by selling their interest to individuals not seeking citizenship; or after five years to a prospective citizenship applicant.
Access to Quality Education
Dominicans are eligible for scholarships from Ross University School of Medicine – a renowned US offshore medical school owned by DeVry University, but based on the island. The School’s graduates are known for earning more residency positions than those from other schools world wide, and for scoring high on the US Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE).
BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE
Investing in government approved real estate usually affords investors the right to:
- Recover invested interests after three years
- Receive annual returns on the investment
- Reside in the property for a specified amount of time per year
- Own a piece of prime real estate, whose value is likely to increase with time
