Dominica Visa Process

Step 1

Gather documents

Fill in the official forms and supporting documents for your CBI application and attend your medical examination. Make sure the paperwork is in English, with appropriate notarization and legalisation.
If you are purchasing property, this will need to be reserved through a sales and purchase agreement.

Step 2

Submit application

Upon collection of all documents, your authorised agent will submit your final application to the CBIU and liaise on your behalf for any correspondence, queries or questions. Dominica does not require a mandatory interview, however, the Government might request one at their discretion.

Step 3

Background check

The CBIU will recommend your application to the Government based on your due diligence background check report. Your authorised agent will provide you with a letter regarding the status of your application (approved in principle, delayed for further processing, or rejected).

Step 4

Payment & verification

If your application receives approval in principle, you will be instructed by a CBIU letter to either make a contribution to the Economic Diversification Fund or invest in a real estate property.The CBIU will issue your certificate of registration after the proof of payment. That will act as your citizenship evidence and will be further used to apply for your Dominican passport.
