About VIMB

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.

VIMB provides the only truly end-to-end DSP processing service for our partners – from document submission to passport distribution. We control the entire process to give you peace of mind, security and integrity.

VIMB acts as:

1

An administrative resource for supporting the Citizenship application process.

Physical office for face- to- face discussions and information sessions with experts on Vanuatu.

A link to provide seamless communication between Vanuatu and global key geographical centres.

An information resource for tourism, property investment and travel related enquiries.

The Vanuatu Investment Migration Bureau Network

The Vanuatu Investment Migration Bureau (VIMB) network of offices are supported by a number of agents in different geographies.
VIMB already spans the globe with the most Representative Offices for the promotion and management of Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program – known as the “Vanuatu Development Support Program”.

Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program has experienced rapid growth in numbers, and a proliferation of agents in the market have created an uneven distribution of the program in terms of service quality.  VIMB is unique in the global market place having assembled the most comprehensive and effective delivery channel for the program.
