The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Program is the first to introduce interviews

The Dominica Citizenship by Investment Department issued an official document on July 12, officially introducing the interview process. This measure is applicable to every investor who submits an application from July 17, 2023 and his family members who have reached the age of 16. Additional costs that may be incurred have not yet been announced.

It is reported that the interview will be conducted remotely and online, and the naturalization by investment department will arrange translators for the applicant as much as possible under the premise of coordinating time zones and other factors to promote efficient communication.
According to analysis by industry insiders, the interview session is likely to be arranged at the end of the due diligence process. It will focus on the information disclosed and documents provided by applicants aged 16 and above. In addition, it will also involve questions that may arise during the due diligence process.

Applicants who submit investment citizenship applications before July 17, 2023 will not be restricted by the above new policy.

Four other countries in the Caribbean that offer citizenship by investment programs will also announce their interview requirements, namely St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, St. Lucia and Grenada.
