New Dominica CIP rules makes it easier to gain dual citizenship

Effective as of December 2016, Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program recognizes children of up to 28 years of age and parents of applicants with over 55 years of age fully supported by the main applicant. No longer family members need to submit multiple applications; the new regulation allows the main applicant to include all family members that falls into the financial requirements and age descriptions into his or her application.
