Commonwealth of Dominica Links

All of the links given below can be found in and are fully discussed in the book ""How to Retire in the Commonwealth of Dominica" by Les Johns which can be purchased directly from this site.

Tourist and General Information Pages

All of the web sites listed below have been mentioned in and are also accessible from the previous chapters. Not all of those mentioned before have been listed here. Many of the sites will lead to others and to alternative pages which may be of interest to you. Your own searches may have led you different sites that may be pertinent or which you may think would interest fellow retirees. You can e-mail the details of such sites to the author via the web site that is relevant to this and other countries. Your information could, in time, be listed on the site and in future books of this series for the benefit of all. The author and all who view the results of your research thank you for your time and effort.

There will be a loose classification into areas dealt with by the sites e.g.Tourism; Official Government; Commercial Enterprises etc. This looseness is simply because some sites cross the descriptive boundaries. No general coverage of countries could possibly be tailored to suit everybody's total requirements. After reading the previous descriptive pages relevant to the countries of particular interest to you it should be possible to glean information specific to your own circumstances by dipping into the following sites. Some countries provide more comprehensive information online than do others.

Generally there will be no comment or discussion of the sites. An exception to this occurs in the case of the "Banking" page where some comment on the origin of a few of the organizations named is made because of changes that have been brought about by the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/9 and in subsequent years. In Europe in particular there has been some consolidation and rationalization of ownership although previously familiar names have sometimes been retained. Other minor points, such as the language in which the bank normally conducts its business, are mentioned.
