Dominica, “the Nature Island”, is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. It lies between the French overseas territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique and is famous for its practically untouched nature – green mountains, countless rivers and waterfalls. The area of about 300 square miles is a home to approximately 70,000 people. Former British dependent territory, it gained its independence in 1978, speaks English as the official language, as well as a local dialect Creole, and has its law system based on the common law. The currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, which is very stable and has an exchange rate of about EC$ 2.70 for US$ 1.00. The Commonwealth of Dominica is a politically and economically stable democratic state.

Following current policy guidelines, the economic contribution takes the form of a direct non-refundable payment made to the Government. In exchange, investors and their families are granted full citizenship.
