Basically a newly citizen has all natural rights like the other native citizens. But about the residency there are many conditions in some countries, in a way that a resided person has more restricted rights comparing with the natives.
Secondly when you get your citizenship you are not required to live there but with residency there is usually a time limit and for example if he /she doesn’t spend 6 months of a year in that country they may lose their residency.
In most cases, obtaining citizenship from Dominica takes less time than getting residency from other countries. It happens the second citizenship process takes only 3 months while in some countries residency process period is much longer and America in particular takes about 12 years.

For instance, it takes at least 4 years to get one's passport in Canada if they aren’t rejected. In Europe, residency must be renewed every year and receiving passport takes a few years under special circumstances.
