Visitors to Dominica normally do not require a visa unless they are nationals of the Dominican Republic.[1]

Dominica signed a mutual visa-waiver agreement with the European Union on 28 May 2015 which was ratified on 15 December 2015.[2] This agreement allows all citizens of states that are contracting parties to the Schengen Agreement to stay without a visa for a maximum period of 90 days in any 180-day period.[3]

Nationals of France can enter and visit for up to 14 days using a valid or expired National identity card (CNIS). For holders of expired CNIS, the document must be issued between 2004-2013 and the holder must be 18 or older on the date of issue.[4]
