Popular visa-free countries for Vanuatu citizens

The visa-free countries accessible to Vanuatu citizens include popular tourist and business centers.

United Kingdom. Until the mid-1980s, Vanuatu was jointly ruled by France and the United Kingdom. On June 30, 1980, the country gained independence, and a month later entered the Commonwealth of Nations.

As Vanuatu is a member of the Commonwealth, Vanuatu citizens can spend up to 180 consecutive days in the UK without a visa. Moreover, on expiry of the 180-day period, a Vanuatu citizen can leave the UK and re-enter immediately to start a new 180-day period.

Hong Kong and Singapore. Vanuatu citizens can visit Hong Kong and Singapore without a visa. These countries are large business centers and visa-free access is useful for investors who work in the Asian region.

A Vanuatu passport holder can spend 90 days per annum without a visa in Hong Kong and 30 days in Singapore.

How to get a Vanuatu passport by investment and travel visa-free

A Vanuatu passport by investment can be issued quickly, within 1-2 months.

To get a passport, the applicant needs to invest $130,000 in the country's economy. The investment conditions are comparable with those offered by Caribbean citizenship by investment programs.

The spouse, children and parents of the investor can also be included in the citizenship application. The investment amount, commissions and fees depend on the composition of the family. Fill out a short questionnaire and we will calculate the cost of Vanuatu passports for the whole family.
