Nestled on Dominica’s picturesque Picard Beach, Anichi Resort & Spa seeks to provoke immersive, sensorial adventures as it does peaceful introspection. Its striking design, amplifying the spirit of Dominica and its indigenous people, fuses tropical foliage with impressive architecture, giving way to what can only be called eco-chic resort living.
Timeshares here come with one unique perk: Dominica citizenship. The citizenship by investment program lets you buy in at $200,000 and gain that country’s citizenship. What’s more they offer what immigration opponents in the U.S. refer to as ‘chain migration’. You don’t just get citizenship, your family of seven or more does too. And the official language there is English.
In addition to the investment you pay the following fees to the government:
Processing time is three months, and according to their marketing materials Dominica passports enjoy visa free travel to at least 130 countries. (Passport Index ranks a Dominica passport as 35th best based on access to 119 countries visa-free.)
And by the way if your citizenship application gets denied for any reason, most of your money is fully refundable.
Once a citizen you only need to hang onto your investment for five years. You keep your citizenship. You sell the timeshare. And the new buyers get citizenship too when they pay $200,000 or more for your unit.
