Dominican nationals who wish to visit the UK for less than six months as a tourist or family visitor will be able to continue to do so without the need for a visa. In July last year, it was announced that the British government was considering placing visa restrictions on Dominicans travelling to the United Kingdom. In response to this news the government of Dominica established a special committee to coordinate Dominica’s response to ensure that all the concerns raised by the UK were dealt with in a timely and efficient manner.

At the end of the review period the foreign and commonwealth office and the home office of the United Kingdom determined that Dominica had in fact demonstrated a genuine commitment to put into effect credible and realistic plans, with clear timetables, to reduce risks to the UK. With the improved systems and new legislation in place, the government of Dominica has been assured that the government of the UK will not impose travel restrictions on Dominican citizens wishing to travel to the UK. Improvements to Dominica’s immigration system are on-going and considerable investment in technology and training will be necessary going forward.
