Vanuatu Citizenship

The Vanuatu citizenship by investment program was launched in 2017. The terms for participation in the program are regulated by Chapter 112 of the Citizenship Law and Vanuatu government order No. 215.

The Vanuatu citizenship by investment program is the fastest in the world. It takes a minimum of 1 month to get a passport, and the entire procedure is remote.

Benefits of Citizenship through Investment program in Vanuatu


Visa-free entry to 95+ countries

Vanuatu citizens can travel visa-free to 95 countries. The passport replaces a visa for spending up to 180 days a year in the UK. Hong Kong and Singapore are also available visa-free.


USA B-1/B-2 tourist visas for 5 years

Vanuatu citizens get the B-1/B-2 tourist visas for 5 years. The visa allows the holders to spend up to 180 days a year in the USA. 

The visa holders can hold business meetings, travel around the country, get medical treatment and enrol to study in courses that do not lead to a diploma or degree.


Tax optimization for business

Investors can establish an international business company (IBC) in Vanuatu. Although such companies are not eligible to earn income in Vanuatu, they can enjoy tax incentives. 

The company and its shareholders don’t pay taxes on corporate profits, personal income, capital gains, inheritance, or donations. Instead, there is a flat annual fee of $300. The beneficial tax regime is valid for 20 years.


No residency requirements

Citizens don’t need to stay in the country before or after getting the passport.


Moving to the EU at any time
No taxation on income in another country and inheritance

Terms of investment through the purchase of real estate

Applicants contribute to the National Development Fund to get Vanuatu citizenship by investment. The fund money goes to develop Vanuatu’s economy and fight against natural disasters, for example, to recover from the Harold tropical cyclone.

The contribution is not refundable and does not bring income.
