  • Invest in a pre-approved real estate development.

STAGE IV: Submit application to CBIU

  • When all of your forms have been completed, and all documentation collected, your authorized agent will submit your application to the CBIU and liaise with them on your behalf.
  • Unlike other countries offering CBI programs, Dominica does not currently require a mandatory interview, though the Government may ask for one at their discretion.

STAGE V: Payment and certification

  • If your application is approved in principle, the CBIU’s letter will also instruct you to make your contribution payment for the investment.
