Long-term visa to the USA. Citizens of Dominica are eligible for a B-1/B-2 visa to the United States. They get it for 10 years as part of Dominica visa free countries.

With a tourist visa, you can not work in the USA. But you can travel, study at short-term courses, be treated at local hospitals and fly to business meetings and conferences. 

The B-1/B-2 visa allows you to spend up to 6 months in the US during the year.

Business development abroad. Citizenship of Dominica allows you to register international companies in this country. At the same time, the data of the founder is not entered in the commercial register and his name cannot be found upon request. This helps to protect the company, its assets and the owner himself.

Registering a company in Dominica helps to avoid other problems, e.g. currency control when making settlements with foreign partners. 

Study and treatment abroad. The ability to visit the UK and the Schengen states without visas helps ensure a successful future for children. Cosmopolitans and their children personally inspect schools and universities, and during their studies, parents visit students at any time.

To be treated abroad, you usually need a medical visa. The paperwork takes from 2 days to several weeks. This option will not help in an emergency when you need to fly now. The Dominica passport will help out: with it you can fly for treatment to clinics in Europe and the UK on the same day.

Possibility to return the money. Under the option with the purchase of real estate, you need to invest at least $200,000 in objects approved by the government of the country. The money can be returned after 5 years by selling your share.

Buying property in Dominica is more popular than a contribution to the state fund. From July 1st, 2019 to May 31st, 2020 the real estate option was chosen by 2 times more applicants.

Short terms. Investors receive a Dominica passport in an average of 4-6 months. It is faster and easier than other paths to citizenship in this country. For example, obtaining citizenship by naturalization takes years because it requires long-term residence in the chosen country.

Noble goals. The Dominica government spends investors' money on social projects. The country is building hospitals and hurricane-resistant houses, allocating grants for education, fighting poverty and hunger, and developing alternative energy. And by 2030, the government of Dominica plans to achieve all 17 sustainable development goals proposed by the UN.
