Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Program has received different ranking by two different companies.
In mid-May, Henley & Partners ranked the island’s program last in the world but the Canada-based Stephane Tajick Consulting, the program ranked as the number one.
Henley & Partners, which describes itself as “a residence and citizenship planning company” launched its Global Residence and Citizenship Programs 2016 report a few weeks ago. It ranked the 19 most relevant residence-by-investment programs as well as the top eight citizenship-by-investment programs available throughout the world today.
Dominica’s program was placed at the bottom of the heap with St. Lucia second to last.
However, in its “The Global Residency & CitizenshipReport 2016,” Stephane Tajick Consulting, said Dominica’s passport ranked number one in terms of quality, factoring in business, travel, and wealth management.
Additionally, Apex Capital Partners Founder and President, Nuri Katz, was recently featured in an international story that appeared in The Daily Mail, Business Insider, Economic Times, and many others, referencing Dominica as an ideal location for global citizens to buy second citizenship for an investment of $100,000 or more.
Apex Capital Partners has been working with the Government of Dominica on its CBI program.
Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, praised the report by Stephane Tajick Consulting.
“These recent reports and widespread media coverage validate the efforts we have taken to ensure that we have implemented the best of breed citizenship by investment program, one that is highly competitive with the very best in the industry and meets the highest compliance and due
diligence standards,” he said.
Director of Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Unit, Emmanuel Nanthan, said he is thrilled by the report.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for the strength of the Dominica passport, one that we believe equips citizens with significant ease of travel, exemplary business functionality, and simplified wealth management solutions,” he stated.
Katz said he is honored to be working with the Government of Dominica in the program.
“We are honored to work hand-in-hand with the government of Dominica, as well as the dedicated individuals who have made this program so successful,” he noted. “Our international clientele continues to identify Dominica as a country that meets not only their business and financial needs but one that provides a high quality of living for themselves and their families.”
