HOW TO APPLY

There are following steps required to be followed to apply for the Citizenship process.

Step 1:

Reliance Immigration is an authorised agent appointed by Govt of Common Wealth of Dominica to process citizenship application.

Step 2:

We will provide you with assistance in preparing your forms and documentation for submission to the CBIU. You will need to complete the official forms, attend a medical examination, and obtain certain supporting documents, all of which need to be submitted in English and with the appropriate notarisation and legalisation. If you are purchasing property, this will need to be reserved through a sales and purchase agreement.

Step 3

Your application will be vetted through a thorough due diligence background check which will verify the information that you have provided. The CBIU will consider the file in the light of the due diligence report, and will make a recommendation on your application to the Government.

You will receive a letter through us, that will inform you as to whether your application was successful (‘Approval in Principle’), delayed for further processing, or rejected

Step 4

When all of your forms are complete and documents collected will submit your application to CBIU and will liaise with the CBIU on your behalf.

Will attend to all the correspondence, queries or question on your file that may arise in due course.

There is currently no mandatory interview requirement under the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program. However, an interview may be required at the discretion of Government. 

Step 5

If your application was approved in principle, the letter issued by the CBIU will also instruct you to make the contribution payment (for the Economic Diversification Fund option) or to complete the payment of the real estate property.

Upon receiving proof of payment, the CBIU will issue your certificate of registration, which stands as evidence of your citizenship and which can be used by yourself or by us to apply for a Dominican passport.
