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 Valu (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.

Vanuatu represents most people’s idea of paradise. This largely undiscovered tropical chain of islands in the south Pacific is peaceful, vibrant and culturally diverse, as well as offering deserted beaches, rugged landscapes and ancient culture. Vanuatu also offers up a warm welcome to international travelers to its shores. But there’s much more to this island nation than white sand, blue skies and clear seas, Vanuatu offers a stable, secure, home away from home for those who want it, as well as a passport offering incredible global freedom for investors wishing to spread their wings and travel up to 120+ countries visa free including Europe.

PROCESS

Step1:
Onboarding: Client accepts Secondpass Global Quotation and sends the Main Applicant Passport copy for initial due diligence check. Once confirmed ok, client signs Secondpass Global Retainer Agreement and sends the initial fund to start the process.

Step2:
Apply for FIU Check with Vanuatu: Client sends their colour certified passport copy, a police clearance report showing a clean criminal record and a personal profile (CV) to Secondpass Global along with the necessary FIU check government fee.

Step3:
Gain pre-approval and submit investment: Within ten days of initial application above, client will gain written confirmation of clearance to proceed (in effect a “pre-approval”) from the Vanuatu government Financial Intelligence Unit (FlU) and make full payment along with the remaining documentation filing.

Step4:
Submit for screening. The Vanuatu Citizen Commission will examine your application for citizenship to check that you have obtained the requisite clearance to proceed (FlU) and to check that all stipulated 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 or omissions.

Step5:
Confirmation by the Prime Minister. The Citizenship Commission will inform the Prime Minister who, as a formality will confirm your citizenship with the President who personally signs your Citizenship Certificate.

Step6:
Take oath and become a citizen. The last step is to take your citizenship oath, which is a requirement from the Vanuatu Government’s Commissioner of Oath. This is a ceremony where you pledge your allegiance to Vanuatu, and in return become a full 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, a ceremony can be arranged in the Vanuatu Embassy nearest to you or in your Home upon payment of a small fee.
