What are the main differences between the Development Support Program (DSP) and the Capital Investment Immigration Plan (CIIP)?
Certainly, the DSP and CIIP both offer pathways to Vanuatu citizenship through financial contributions but differ primarily in investment nature and cost:
- DSP: Requires a non-refundable donation, costing USD 185,000 for a family of four, and is used for various developmental purposes across Vanuatu.
- CIIP: Involves a USD 138,000 all-inclusive fee for 1-4 family members and includes a USD 50,000 investment into the “CNO Future Fund,” which is redeemable after 5 years, effectively reducing the overall cost of citizenship. This fund specifically aids in the development of the coconut oil sector to meet Vanuatu’s 2030 carbon net zero goals.
