ABOUT VANUATU

Vanuatu, officially known as the Republic of Vanuatu, is an archipelago nation, spread across 82 islands in the south Pacific Ocean. The country’s capital and largest city is Port Villa and its official languages are Bislama, French and English – though over 100 languages are estimated to be spoken locally. The local currency is the Vanuatu Vatu (VAV). Vanuatu enjoys strong relationships with many powerful nations around the world, with close cultural and economic ties to Australia, New Zealand and much of the European Union. The country is also a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund.

STEPS AND PROCEDURES

  • Apply for pre-approval.  You’ll need your existing passport, a second form of certified ID copy, a police clearance report and a personal profile (CV). A one-off  fee of USD$5,000 is payable at the same time as document submission.
  • Gain pre-approval and submit investment. Within 10 days of initial application, you will gain written confirmation of clearance to proceed from the Vanuatu government Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), and make your full payment along with the remaining documentation filing.
  • Submit for screening.  The Vanuatu Citizen Commission will examine your application, to check if you have obtained the requisite clearance to proceed (FIU), and to check if all documentation and payment has been received. You will be guided through this to ensure that the documents are presented at this stage in full, with no errors.
  • Confirmation by the Prime Minister.  The Citizenship Commission will inform the Prime Minister who will confirm your citizenship with the President who personally signs your Citizenship Certificate.
  • Take oath and become a citizen. The last step is to take your citizenship oath, which is a requirement by the Vanuatu Government. This is a ceremony where you pledge your allegiance to Vanuatu, and become a citizen of Vanuatu with all the associated rights. At this stage you get your Certificate of Citizenship and your new passport.

You do not have to be physically in Vanuatu to take your oath.
