VANUATU INVESTMENT MIGRATION BUREAU
Headquartered in Port Vila, Vanuatu, the Vanuatu Investment Migration Bureau (VIMB) is a Government appointed “Designated Agent” – meaning it is a licensed Master Agent to handle and process Citizenship applications directly with the Vanuatu Citizenship Commission.
VIMB is the only Designated Agent with its own global network of authorized representatives/offices for promotion of Vanuatu’s Citizenship by Investment Program – the Vanuatu “Development Support Program” (DSP)”
VIMB cooperates with a select number of partners around the world who are each appointed and accredited to work on behalf of VIMB.
By working with VIMB, you are working with a validated, credible and transparent channel to the Vanuatu Citizenship Commission.
With many agents in the market-place offering inaccurate and misleading pricing for the Vanautu DSP, VIMB seeks to act as a reliable reference regarding up to date pricing and processing as regulated by the Vanuatu Citizenship Commission.

SEE HOW EASY IT WORKS IN 6 STEPS
The applicant submit to VIMB the required documents and the FIU fee to start the process.
Once the applicant get the confirmation of no adverse findings by FIU,then a "pre-approval" is granted.
VIMB review the full documentation and the payment clearance, then the application is submitted to the Citizenship Commission which convenes twice a month.
Screening Committee considers the Application one day before the Citizenship Commission meets and makes a recommendation to the Citizenship Commission.
After Citizenship Commission approves the Application, an Agreement in Principle (AIP) is issued to the Representative. AIP process is 7 to 14 days.
The final step is the Applicant taking their Oath. This will be commissioned by the Vanuatu Government's Commissioner of Oath. In this ceremony the new Citizen receives their Certificate of Vanuatu Citizenship as well as their new Vanuatu Passport.
