Citizens of the United Arab Emirates can travel to the Commonwealth of Dominica without a visa.
The Dominican Embassy in Abu Dhabi declared that a visa waiver agreement between the two countries has now come into force.
Holders of UAE Diplomatic, Official, Special and Ordinary passports may now visit Dominica visa-free. Contrariwise, Dominicans with a Diplomatic and Official passport can gain UAE entry with a visa upon arrival, while those with and Ordinary Dominica passport can have an eVisa.
Those who have become economic citizens of Dominica via its Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme can subsequently apply for an Ordinary passport, which allows them to enter the UAE based on an eVisa.
In January, The Commonwealth of Dominica established a new embassy in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi. This just not becomes the first Dominican mission to the country but also to the Middle East.
It provides consular services to a ‘small but dynamic’ community of economic citizens of Dominica, living in the UAE, as mentioned by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit during the opening ceremony.
“The visa waiver agreement is yet another important step in the development of strong bilateral relations between the Commonwealth of Dominica and this dynamic country,” His Excellency Hubert Charles, the Dominican Ambassador to the UAE, commented in an official press release.
“It not only facilitates official travel but introduces predictability and certainty on the part of citizens of both countries interested in travel for tourism, investment, trade, and cultural purposes,” Ambassador Charles stated.
UAE residents may obtain second citizenship from Dominica between three to four months, if they meet all the requirements, including due diligence checks. Investments start at US$100,000 for single applicants, through the Economic Diversification Fund.
Another route to Dominican citizenship is by investing at least US$200,000 in pre-approved real estate, which includes already operating luxury hotels like Jungle Bay and Secret Bay, two resorts nearing completion – Tranquility Beach (Hilton) and Anichi (Marriott), or the latest addition – Sanctuary Rainforest.
