Additional visa-free destinations include, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo


The Vanuatu Citizenship By Investment Program is the fastest program of its kind in the world.

You and your family can be citizens of Vanuatu in under 45 days from now.


Your CBI contribution only becomes payable, directly to the Government of Vanuatu, once your application has been approved in principle.

Your only non-refundable cost is the $5,500 due diligence fee.


Applicants don’t ever need to visit Vanuatu to obtain Vanuatu citizenship and a second passport, nor are they required to adhere to minimum annual visits in order to obtain or maintain their citizenship status.


Apart from VAT, Vanuatu does not charge any material taxes, making obtaining Vanuatu nationality a powerful tool in terms of optimising your global tax obligations.


Leave your loved ones a truly global legacy – and the ultimate Plan B as a safety net.

Add your spouse, parents, grandparents over the age of 50, and kids under the age of 25 to your CBI application.

Vanuatu citizens enjoy access to British consular services anywhere in the world, should you ever need their assistance.
