The Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program was launched in 2015 offering investors an affordable and a quick route towards second citizenship. After making the required donation to the government’s Development Support Program, investors will reap the many benefits of Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program including freedom of travel to more than 98 countries, countless business benefits, and the ability to live in a safe and secure country with their family.

Vanuatu is a chain of 80 undiscovered islands close to Australia known for their deserted beaches and mountainous landscape. Recently, Vanuatu released its own citizenship by investment program to be the first program of its kind in the Asia-Pacific Hemisphere.

Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program offers only one investment scheme and that is through a nonrefundable, onetime contribution to the government’s Development Support Program. Within 2-3 months of their application start date, investors will receive Vanuatu Passport, which is a Commonwealth Passport.

Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment program is one of the fastest economic citizenship programs to process files. Afterwards, investors will enjoy the countless benefits of a second passport in no time. Benefits include the attractive tax environment of Vanuatu with no income tax, wealth tax or even inheritance tax.

In order to get Vanuatu Citizenship, an investor doesn’t need to pass any interview or language tests. However, an investor is required to swear the Oath before getting the citizenship. This ceremony can take place at any country of the investor’s choice without the need to visit or reside in Vanuatu at any point during or after the application process.

Vanuatu Citizenship gives the investor the full citizenship rights and permits dual citizenship. Investors won’t need to renounce their current nationality, and can pass on the Vanuatu citizenship to future generations by descent.

Vanuatu Passport

Second Vanuatu Passport allows its holder to travel freely without a visa to more than 98 countries. Visa-free Countries include Schengen Countries, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore and Russia. Moreover, and since Vanuatu is a Commonwealth country, Vanuatu citizens will have access to reputable universities and health institutes in the United Kingdom.

Considering its strategic location, Vanuatu has solid ties with several of the world’s most powerful nations including Australia, New Zealand and the European Union. Given this, and Vanuatu’s membership in the Commonwealth of Nation, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Investors have been investing in Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program that grants them Vanuatu’s Passport in as little as 3 months.
