Processing Fee for Newborn and Adopted Children
Before these recent changes made to Dominica Citizenship by Investment programme, there were some applicants who left the process in between because there was no clause for newborn and adopted children as dependents. Dominican government observed the issue and keeping the applicants at priority, made this major move in their law. Now the main applicant and his/her spouse can add their newly born baby and legally adopted child as dependents.
Children who are newborn or adopted after completing the process of citizenship can be registered any time in future not primarily within 5 years of birth. The government is constantly trying to cater to all the needs of applicants who are ready to invest in the process of uplifting the country’s economy.
To attain citizenship for newly born and legally adopted children, charges would be:
- Processing Fee: US$500
- Certificate of Naturalization Fee: US$250
