Cash Strapped Caribbean Islands Selling Citizenship For Money

If you want to become a citizen of the Caribbean island of Dominica, it’s no longer necessary for you to have been born there. All you dominicahave to do is write a fat check, and the tropical island citizenship is yours.

Fox affiliate myfoxny.com caught with a Palestinian man who bought his citizenship for a cool six figures. Hadi Mezawi received a Dominican passport after paying the government $100,000.

“At the start I was a little worried that it might be a fraud, but the process turned out to be quite smooth and simple. Now, I am a Dominican,” said Mezawi. This will help Mezawi travel for business since his home of Palestine is not recognized as a country.

As political unrest boils over in several countries, other more stable cash strapped countries have begun selling citizenship as a way of recovering revenue. Many people who live in countries with uncertain futures are looking for passports so that they can leave if necessary, and Dominica is happy to oblige.

The islands of St. Kitts & Nevis are also islands where it is easy for foreigners to get passports, so easy that a company is actually building a facility which allows investors to buy citizenship and property at the same time.

The more they fight over there, the more political problems there are, the more applications we get here,” said Victor Doche, managing director of another company that offers four condominium projects where approved buyers are granted citizenship in St. Kitts.

There’s no way to know exactly how many people have taken advantage of cash for citizenship programs, but the numbers are certainly on the rise.

  1. ANXIOUS TO KNOW BLACK AMERICAN!

    On one hand I think countries who are doing this are really inviting big trouble for themselves in that criminals will setup a haven there sand the locales will become their victims/slaves! This is much the same as what is happening in all-to-many African Countries as a direce result of foreigners who once colonized trhem! HOWEVER; I WOULD NEVER EVEN THINK ABOUT GIVING UP MY AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP! I DO ADMIT IF I WERE ALLOWED TO HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP AND COULD AFFORD IT I WOULD GLADLY PURCHASE CITIZENSHIP IN A CARIBBEAN AND/OR AN AFRICAN COUNTRY!

  3. American citizens can’t take advantage of the offer because they would have to give up their American citizenship. Other countries allow their citizens to have dual citizenships, but not the U.S. Either you are an American citizen or you are not. Many immigrant Americans are still recognized as citizens in their home countries, but here, they are only Americans.

  4. That’s crazy mess up because the people that are actually from their are super impoverish and some foreigner can write a check? what about if a average joe needs to leave where they are at 100,000 is a lot of money. It is not like the money is helping the impoverish citizens.

  5. The world cannot remain “your country, my country” . . ,

  6. Jeez..these countries are just attracting people who are the cause of all the unrest in the world. They have all that stolen $ & are now clamoring to the caribbean where they can live like kings while the locals serve them & are still poor as hell–the plantation all over again.
