Emmanuel Nanthan, Head of Dominica Citizenship by Investment Unit, answers our questions on what draws investors to this Caribbean island nation

What demand have you noticed for citizenship by investment programmes in Dominica among UAE residents?

Many UAE residents apply for Dominican citizenship. The UAE is a melting pot and people from all over the world work and live here. They need to travel extensively for business and are familiar about how the Dominican programme can help them as many of their friends have already opted for this programme. They are a living testimony to the success of Dominica’s programme on how people can explore new business opportunities in the Caribbean.

What kind of investments are usually needed for second citizenship in Dominica?

For the Dominican citizenship programme, an investor could apply directly in the government’s Economic Diversification Fund or in an approved real estate project like Anichi Resort & Spa, a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel. The direct government investment is only $100,000 (Dh367,250) plus fees for a single applicant and $200,000 plus fees in approved real estate project. Single applicants generally invest directly in the government fund while families apply for the real estate option. Properties from international brands like Kempinski, Hilton and Marriott are on offer for investments although Kempinski is already sold out.
