Why Vanuatu?

Vanuatu might be described as an “undiscovered Pacific gem”.  In a world plagued by crisis and uncertainty, Vanuatu is “far removed” in every sense of the word…..and yet with daily connections through Australia and New Zealand  is still easily accessible.
The value of obtaining Vanuatu Citizenship is not only for peace of mind today, but for the protection and pure pleasure for future generations to enjoy.
As the only Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP) of its type in the Asia Pacific Hemisphere, Vanuatu Citizenship is as unique, as it is valuable to hold.
Often compared to the Caribbean as an option for Citizenship by Investment, Vanuatu prides itself on being unique in many aspects.
