Dominica will soon have an international airport after the signing last week between the government and Montreal Management Consultants (MMCE) to construct the airport. The project – funded entirely by the country's Citizenship by Investment Programme – is set to be completed by 2025.
Dominica's natural beauty, welcoming community, and its exceptional handling of the COVID-19 pandemic have already made it a popular tourist destination particularly for visitors from the United States and Europe. Once the new airport is completed, it will allow even more tourists to discover the Nature Isle.
Dominica is committed to becoming climate-resilient with a ban on plastic already in place and a thriving eco-tourism sector that has already seen construction of luxury resorts from renowned hoteliers like Kempinski, Marriott and Hilton. With a geo-thermal plant set to be completed next year and numerous natural beauty spots such as its boiling lake, the island prioritises the wellness of both its environment and its people.
“In the past year we settled on a site in Wesley and acquired the property through careful negotiations with land and property owners in the area,” Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said. Wesley is a coastal village in north-eastern Dominica.
Dominica’s CIB began in 1993. It has been pivotal to the country's national development. From healthcare to tourism to aviation, investments generated under the programme have made a positive impact to almost all sectors of Dominican society. The real estate arm offers investors the chance to buy into eco-luxury properties from either top tier hotel giants to unique boutique resorts like Secret Bay or Jungle Bay.
