Aftermath of hurricane Maria - Commonwealth of Dominica - Registrar of Companies
Since the passage of the Category 5 Hurricane Maria on the 18th of September 2017, most of the governmental agencies in the Commonwealth of Dominica remain closed for everyday operations - including the courts and Office of the Companies Registrar
There is a massive clean-up and restoration effort underway and Dominica utility companies are working round-the-clock to restore the utilities. As of today, the vast majority of the areas in Dominica have access to mobile data and water. Some parts of Roseau, the capital of Dominica, have already been connected to power grids, however many buildings still remain without electricity.
Many governmental agencies as well as private companies maintained their email servers and other infrastructure in Dominica. Due to the damages to the infrastructure these institutions and companies remain disconnected and unreachable for the international clients and third parties outside of Dominica.
The Office of the Registrar of Companies in Dominica sustained massive damages and is about to be moved to the new premises. We look forward to the soonest restoration of its operations.
We urge all our clients as well as the clients of other registered agents and law firms to remain calm and allow the Registrar and the registered agents to restore their offices and resume operations.
As of 17th of October 2017, it remains impossible to file or obtain any documents from the Registrar of the Companies in Dominica as well as legalise documents with an apostille.
We are looking forward to the restoration of the Registrar of Companies operations and we will keep you posted.
