Mr. Balakrishnan, who owns, specialising in citizenship advisory, quoted “Dominica citizenship is currently, the cheapest in the world, for almost half-the price ($100,000) compared to other caribbean nations Antigua ($200,000), St Kitts ($250,000), Grenada ($200,000), St Lucia ($200,000) for the same passport benefits. The real estate investment amount is also half the price at $200,000, unlike Antigua and St Kitts, which is very expensive starting at $400,000. The donation route for citizenship requiring $100,000 is the most popular route chosen by clients, because it is cheap, easy and straight forward process. We have received lots of interests for Dominica from Middle east and far east including Americans wanting second citizenship.”

A minimum real estate investment of $200,000 in a hotel or luxury resort, also qualifies for citizenship in Dominica with family. The real estate can be freely sold off in the market after 3 years.
