The Commonwealth of Dominica is an independent English-speaking island state situated between the French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe.

One of the most beautiful countries in the Caribbean, it has a pleasant climate, particularly in the cooler period between December and March. The island has an almost non-existent crime rate. The currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, which is pegged to the US Dollar.

Advantages

  • The Dominica passport allows visa-free travel to about 90 countries worldwide, including the United Kingdom, Switzerland and many others;
  • The applicant and his/her family receive full citizenship and passports, which can be passed on to future generations by descent;
  • Citizens of Dominica receive certain limited preferential treatment in the UK due to the country’s membership to the Commonwealth, including the opportunity for your children to study in the UK without needing to obtain a student visa.

  • EUR 650,000 — a contribution for main applicants;
  • EUR 25,000 — for a spouse and for each child under the age of 18;
  • The application may include children between the ages of 18 and 26 years if they are financially dependent on the main applicant and are not married; in such cases, the additional contribution is set at EUR 50,000 for each dependant

Parents over the age of 55 may also be included in the application as dependants, if they are living with and are fully supported by the main applicant. In such cases, an additional contribution of EUR 50,000 is required per person.

Highly detailed due diligence checks are carried out and an application will be declined if it turns out that it contains false information or omissions.

Tax Assessment:

Individuals who are resident and domiciled in Malta pay income tax on their worldwide income. Personal income is taxed at progressive rates up to 35%. However, individuals who are resident but not domiciled in Malta pay tax on income arising in Malta and on income (excluding capital gains) remitted to Malta that arises outside the island (i.e. ‘remittance basis’). The tax rate varies in accordance with the individual’s tax status.

The acquisition of Maltese citizenship does not, in itself, trigger tax residency, but even if one decides to move and take up permanent residence in Malta, one would normally still retain the status of a non-domiciled person.

Malta does not impose estate or gift tax but does levy a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on various assets (mainly immovable property and shares). CGT is not levied on transfer of immovable property if the person transferring the property has owned it and occupied it as his main residence for a period of three consecutive years immediately preceding the date of transfer and if the property is transferred within 12 months from vacating the premises.

Otherwise, tax may be levied at up to 35% on the gain if the property is sold within the first 12 years of ownership or 12% on the sales consideration if the transfer is made after 12 years of ownership. The 12% final tax, however, does not apply if the individual property owner is not resident in Malta.

The standard VAT rate is 18%. The corporate tax rate is 35%; special tax concessions, however, apply for non-
resident/non-domiciled owners.
