Business as Usual for Dominica’s Citizenship-by-Investment Unit Despite Post-Hurricane Challenges
In keeping with the stability and resilience for which the citizenship by investment (CBI) programme and the island of Dominica is known, the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU) is back in full operation, following the direct hit by Hurricane Maria last week.
Owing to the rigorous processes that have been established over years of refinement, the Unit has had minimal disturbance to the processing of applications, and continues to provide the product that has been widely acclaimed as the world’s best citizenship by investment programme.
Infrastructural damage to the department’s building is minimal, and all lines of communications have been restored, including emails and phone lines.
Prime minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, applauded the Unit for its proactive response: “We’re getting on the with the job. My team is amazing. They may have lost their homes, but they have not lost their will to work. We will continue to provide a programme of exceptional service and quality, and as far as we’re concerned its business as usual.”
The CIU, which is responsible for the processing of all citizenship applications and due diligence procedures, continues to enhance their processes with a recently launched online submission portal.
