The latest Caribbean Island to enhance their Citizenship by Investment legislation is Dominica. Just a few days after Saint Lucia announced their recent amendments, Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, released a statement which declared the country’s latest updates. One of the most exciting updates is that main applicants and spouses can now include any unmarried siblings. Below is a full breakdown of the amendments.


  1. Siblings – biological or adopted – of the main applicant or spouse may now be included in the application, provided the sibling is over 18 years of age, single, and childless.
  2. Adult children of the main applicant or spouse no longer need to demonstrate that they are in full-time education, they just need to prove that they are financially supported by their parents still. This is ideal for children in their late twenties who may have recently finished their studies but are still being supported by their parents.
  3. Parents and grandparents of the main applicant or spouse, no longer need to demonstrate that they live with the main applicant to qualify but must show that they are financially supported by the main applicant.
  4. Post applicants: Any children born or new spouses married after applicants have received citizenship are now eligible for citizenship on the basis of the original application. This is available to anyone included in the original application, regardless of whether that person was a main applicant, spouse, or dependent.

With the inclusion of grandparents, parents, children, siblings and future children, a family could now include up to five generations under one application. For more details and a full quotation, please contact our team.
