Besides this, Dominica will be hosting the internationally famous World Creole Music Festival (WCMF) during the final weekend of October 2022. The festival marks the conclusion of Creole heritage month. It is an annual three-day music festival hosted only in Dominica.

The WCMF attracts tourists and media coverage from across the globe. The music festival provides entertainment dedicated to the advancement of global Creole culture and music. The festival also contributes to establishing regional cooperation and network capabilities in culture, tourism, and entertainment.

As per the data by the authorities, it attracts more than 10,000 tourists and around 100 international and regional media partners each year. This massive music festival is attended by visitors from the Caribbean, French Antilles, Africa, and North America, as well as from around the world.

Apart from this tourism-attracting festival, Dominica has been engaged in multiple activities which have contributed to the promotion of tourism on the Caribbean island.

The Commonwealth of Dominica is best known for attracting tourists to its mesmerising beaches, luxurious resorts, boiling lake, and tropical rainforests. Festivals, which represent the Caribbean Island country’s tradition and culture, are also counted as tourist attractions.

Dominica is home to flavours of music and dance as well as cultural festivals and hosts multiple carnivals, festivals as well as cultural events, which keeps the citizens intact to local culture.

Dominica has been developing and promoting tourism for past years and transitioning itself from an agriculture-based economy to a more modern, high value-added services economy with the help of the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme. The CBI Programme of Dominica is assisting the country in achieving its development goals.

The country launched CBI Programme in 1993, and it is one of the longest-running and fastest CBI in the world. Interested applicants can apply for citizenship by investing a certain amount in a government-authorized fund or real estate.

Dominica grants alternative citizenship following multiple due-diligence checks, which keeps the security of the country intact.

After attaining the citizenship of Dominica, the applicant can gain access to a huge range of benefits similar to individuals who were born in the country. Citizenship will also ensure access to all the rights, responsibilities and privileges defined by the Law of Dominica.

The citizenship by investment programme has been crowned as the world’s number one for five consecutive years by the CBI Index released by the PWM Magazine of Financial Times. It is regarded as the safest, most secure, and most straightforward CBI Programme globally.
