While the illicit sale, by senior government officials in the Commonwealth of Dominica, of diplomatic passports, has become an everyday event in the country, the fee structure has never been public knowledge. Some reliable Dominica sources have attested to knowing of very large payments, but given that the sale of diplomatic credentials by definition violates the relevant United Nations treaty, The Vienna Convention, which Dominica is a signatory to, accurate information on costs may never be available. The money goes into the pockets of the corrupt officials, and not into the National Treasury.

One Immigration consultancy did publish a fee schedule for the purchase of Dominica diplomatic passports, and we display it here for the benefit of our readers.
