About the CBIU

What is CBIU?

The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme was introduced in 1993 by the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica and is now one of the world’s longest-running economic citizenship programmes. The Citizenship by Investment Unit (CBIU) is the government authority that administers the programme, managing everything from the application process to finding new investment opportunities

Who heads the CBIU?

The CBIU of Dominica is headed by Marie-Therese Johnson.

Johnson’s appointment comes at a pivotal time for the country, as they are celebrating more than three decades of its Citizenship by Investment Programme.

How has the Dominica Citizenship By Investment Programme benefited the country?

The Government recognises the role that private investment can play in helping Dominica thrive as a country. The Citizenship by Investment Programme is an opportunity to encourage foreign direct investment that facilitates growth in the private sector. Over time, this helps to create a framework of diversified, sustainable, and resilient economic structures that can respond to the realities of a highly competitive global environment. For over three decades, the government has remained firmly committed to the programme and is always looking at ways to improve the quality of its offerings.

The Government and our team at the CBIU are dedicated to strengthening the Dominica Citizenship by Investment Programme and seeing the nation and its economy flourish. We hope that you will champion Dominica’s potential by participating in the Programme, and we welcome you to become part of Dominica’s global community, embrace our people and our way of life.
