OFFICIAL CITIZENSHIP

Vanuatu Citizenship & second passport in one month for only
$181k AUD

The Vanuatu Development Support Program was created after the country was severely damaged by  Cyclone Pam in 2015. The government wanted to raise funds in order to help the country get back on its feet. This is the reason that FOR A LIMITED PERIOD it is possible for you to gain citizenship to Vanuatu. Other countries offer similar programs and paths to dual citizenship. However, most of these countries take years to gain official citizenship in and the costs involved are out of reach for most people. Many of these other countries also insist that you invest huge sums of money in property in a country you have little knowledge of. They also often insist that you spend a minimum amount of time in the country each year. If you gain Vanuatu Citizenship through us, we can help you receive your citizenship in just 1 month with your official citizenship ceremony taking place over Zoom without you even needing to visit the country. You will not have to spend any time in Vanuatu in order to gain citizenship. There is also no minimum amount of time you must spend in Vanuatu in the future.

Benefits of dual citizenship

The benefits of dual citizenship by becoming a Vanuatu citizen are immense. One of these benefits is to be able to travel visa free to 129 countries around the world, including the UK, Switzerland and Germany. At this time, Vanuatu still remains Covid free and is one of the few safe havens in the world. As a citizen you and your family will have access to a safe country free of Corona virus. Unlike many countries in the world, your children will not have their education interrupted by school closures. Schools in Vanuatu are operating uninterrupted due to the border closures and strict travel restrictions that the government put in place.

Once the client has had a successful result from the FIU check, they must provide the documents listed below along with the prescribed fee as specified above. It takes 14-20 days from the lodgement date of the application to when the passports are printed and ready for collection.

MONTH 2

In order to collect your passport you must take your Oath of Allegiance. You can elect to do this in Vanuatu (the father and mother can travel to Vanuatu and collect the passports on behalf of their children). Or a Government appointed Commissioner of Oaths and a passport officer can travel to the country where you reside or desire to receive your passports. The Commissioner of Oaths performs the Oath of Allegiance and the Passport Officer hand-delivers you the passports.

Due to Covid 19, Citizenship ceremonies are currently being performed over Zoom. You do not need to leave your country of residence to attain a second passport.

VANUATU

The Republic of Vanuatu is located in the South Pacific 800 kilometers west of Fiji and 1770 kilometers east of Australia . It is an archipelago of 83 inhabited islands.  English, French and Bislama are the three official languages.  Bislama (a form of pigin-English)  is universally spoken and is considered the predominant national language. In addition 110 indigenous languages are still spoken throughout the archipelago.  The inhabitants of Vanuatu are known as Ni-Vanuatu.  The Ni-Vanuatu are predominantly Melanesian, with a mild mix of Polynesian. The country has rich traditions, but proudly declares itself a Christian nation, reflected in the wording in its coat of arms, “Before God we Stand”.

Between 1906 and 1980, Britain and France jointly governed the New Hebrides as a Condominium. The New Hebrides gained independence as Vanuatu in 1980 with a peaceful transition from the colonial powers to the newly elected government.

With a population of just under 300,000 , Vanuatu is now an established holiday destination for visitors mainly from Australia, New Zealand and New  Caledonia.

The capital Port Vila offers a wide selection of resorts and activities for tourists.

The Port Vila International School and the Lycee Francais Port Vila, both offer international standard education for newly arrived students.

There are also tertiary study opportunities at the Emalus Campus of the University of the South Pacific in Port Vila.

Vanuatu’s outer islands offer a range of exciting, and often unique adventurous activities;

Visiting Tanna Island’s active Yasur Volcano, the John Frum Village and various traditional villages,

Scuba Diving on Santo Island (the President Coolidge is a world-renown wreck-dive) and swimming at Champagne Beach,

Witnessing the Nagol on Pentecost Island

The mysteries of Malekula Island

There is actually much to see and do in Vanuatu’s islands.
