The Government of Commonwealth of Dominica has made important changes to the citizenship by investment (“CBI”) program offering a discount for families applying for passport due to Covid-19 situation.

The Dominica citizenship for investment program remains one of the oldest and most popular programs for acquiring second citizenship in the world. It is the best family oriented citizenship program

Under the new changes made families can save USD 25,000 in Govt fees under the EDF donation route.  Siblings can also apply but have to pay additional USD 50,000. No changes to the single applicant.

Adding a spouse now costs just USD 50,000

Previously a family of four had to pay USD 200,000 as Govt donation to EDF fund.  Similarly adding a spouse with main applicant was costing USD 175,000. These changes means will save USD 25,000 for couples and families.
