Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.

Archive for October, 2007


Last week, I visited the Labour and Immigration office at the government ministry building, to find out some information on how someone can apply for permanent residency status in Dominica. Often enough I have had readers of DW ask me this question, so I thought the best way to answer this questions is to go the government ministry which handles immigration and post my findings. Well so I thought.

After being sent back and forth between the ministries of Legal Affairs and Immigration, to my astonishment no one could give me a definite answer on the subject. Both ministries where giving conflicting information on how someone can apply for permanent residency in Dominica. I couldn’t believe our governmental system and the employees. Let me just say this, I’ve worked at FedEx Dominica for 5 years now. It’s not the best job in the world, but I take time to learn as much about my job. You know why I try to learn as much about my job? Because more knowledgeable I’m of my job the better I will be at ANSWERING customer questions without making a complete fool of myself 🙄

Anyway, after all the conflicting information – here is what I grasp from all of the different conservations. One way is to have legal working permits for five years, indicating that you’re been working legally in Dominica for the pass five years, then you can apply for permanent residency via the ministry of Labour and Immigration. Another way is in the event that you get married to a Dominican. After two – three years you can apply for citizenship. During that time in other to remain living in Dominica legally you’ve to keep extending your stay in Dominica through immigration office. Hope you find this information helpful in anyway.

Today I came across this article posted in the Miami Herald “A good walk unspoiled on rugged – Nature Island”. Jill Lawless a writer for the Associated Press and the Miami Herald found out the hard way, that Dominica is not an easy, lazy vacation for the faint-hearted…after hiking to the Boiling Lake. Which is six hour round trip that runs through dense rain forest and over mountain ridges before emerging in the valley of Desolation. And after all this, you’re put up to sleep in a tree-house with no modern amenities.

Be honest, how many people you know will live a tree-house on their vacation? I guess on this vacation the 5-stars goes out the window. 😀

Its just goes to show that Dominica is all about hardcore adventure, defying the regular notion of what a Caribbean vacation should be. If you’re looking for white sand beaches and Casinos, sorry Dominica is not for you…Adventure, Eco-escapes, hell yeah!

In Dominica and in most of the other Caribbean islands, whether volcanic or coral, is blessed will rich soil. Mountains, valleys, sides of the road, even in backyards gardens, show trees that represent the bounty of the “exotic” nature of the island – Breadfruit, guava, mangoes, lime, grapefruits, oranges, pineapple, cherries just to name a few. Cattle, pigs, chickens roam freely in the grasslands, rivers, reefs, and seas teem with fish and crustaceans. The road to environmentally friendly and organic living was already paved for us, but by the way we’re continuing to destroy what’s wild it will be soon all gone.

We have to stop importing process foods and continue with the old traditions left by our ancestors, who understood the harmony of nature is our survival. We must ensure that our lands and waters are kept free of destructive, non-degradable rubbish and pesticides. I’ve no doubt that environmentally-friendly tourism can provide a long future, rich in health and wealth, for us island people
