Dominica's passports on the flag of China symbolize the signed visa-free agreement

On November 22, 2021, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Chinese Ambassador Lin Xianjian signed a pact to abolish the visa regime between the countries during a meeting in the capital of Dominica, Roseau. Dominica is now the second Caribbean nation whose citizens will be able to visit China without an entry permit. Previously, only nationals of Grenada had such an opportunity.

Thanks to the visa-free agreement, businessmen and investors in Dominica have direct access to the Chinese market. It will also promote trade, tourism and other areas. Roosevelt Skerrit said he looks forward to a long and lasting friendship.

Citizens of Dominica are now able to visit 144 countries without visas: Schengen member states, including advanced economies (Germany, France, Great Britain), as well as Singapore, Israel and others.

Benefits of citizenship in Dominica

Citizenship of Dominica is popular among foreign investors. The reason is relatively low investment requirements - 100,000 USD will be enough to obtain a passport. There are no taxes on income, inheritance, real estate, or profits earned outside the country. Citizens of Dominica may trade freely with member states of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), reside and work in the countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States. After the start of the visa-free regime with China, investors could establish business contacts in that country, holding a Dominican passport.

In Dominica, dual citizenship is allowed, and the authorities do not notify the state of the immigrant's first citizenship to grant him a second passport. The entire process takes 3-4 months. Investor does not need to pass language tests and permanently reside in the country, and you can apply for citizenship remotely. In addition to investment, it is possible to obtain a passport of Dominica through a 7-year naturalization, marriage or by birth/origin.
