Dominica has seen a steady increase in the number of applicants from Nigeria over the years. However, the number of Nigerian applicants has skyrocketed in recent months. COVID-19 has made people realise that freedoms can be fleeting and that health is paramount. For many, a second citizenship can provide a layer of protection against restraint and uncertainty.
In partnership with CS Global Partners, the Guardian Nigeria hosted a webinar with Dominican Prime Minister Dr the Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit and His Excellency Emmanuel Nanthan, the Head of the Citizenship by Investment Unit, on January 15th. The webinar discussed three critical benefits for Nigerians opting for economic citizenship in Dominica: Wealth, Safety and Travel.

The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Unit (CBIU) is the official government authority that administers the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme.

Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme is one of the oldest programmes of its kind and the most trustworthy. It was rated, for the fourth consecutive year by FT CBI Index, as the best in the world.

Introduced in 1993 as a means of driving much-needed foreign direct investment to the island, it allows highly reputable individuals and their extended families to diversify their investment portfolio and gain second citizenship of a country that is welcoming and safe haven.
