The European Union (EU) has given a further 18 months’ extension to allow time for the Vanuatu Government to complete reforming its Citizenship Program.

This follows a letter from Prime Minister (PM) Ishmael Kalsakau seeking a 6 months’ extension. The 18 months’ extension will end on the 3rd of August 2024.

The EU Council made this decision on the 1st of December 2022 after having received a letter dated November 25, 2022, from Prime Minister Ishmael Kalsakau. In December 2022, PM Kalsakau led a delegation to the EU and laid out plans his government has embarked upon in reforming the Vanuatu Citizenship program.

The EU will continue to work closely with the established committee through virtual meetings so they get first-hand information on progress made on the ground.

According to Public Relations Officer (PRO) Joe Harry, virtual meetings will be held between the technical committee with Vanuatu’s Ambassador based in Brussels, George Maniuri, to prepare the team for a further meeting with the EU on February 15, 2023.

At the beginning of 2022, the European Commission proposed the partial suspension of the application of the agreement with the Republic of Vanuatu, allowing citizens of Vanuatu to travel to the EU without a visa for stays of up to 90 days in any 180-day period.

Later in March 2022, the Council of the EU partially suspended the visa waiver agreement with Vanuatu, explaining in a statement their decision announced was due to risks posed by its investor citizenship schemes.

The suspension concerns only citizens of Vanuatu holding ordinary passports issued since 25 May 2015, when these Vanuatu investment citizenship schemes entered into force.

EU Council initially announced that a full suspension will come into effect on February 14, 2023.

An Excellent Citizenship Choice

The combination of amenities developed for the offshore business and tourist trades makes Vanuatu an attractive option for the second citizenship. The cost of the citizenship by contribution under the Vanuatu Development Support Program is among the lowest in the world, the freedom offered by the Vanuatu passport is amongst the best, and the time to process new citizenship applications is the fastest. Couple the ease of access with Vanuatu’s welcoming community, the natural beauty, comfortable climate, and ample opportunity for adventure, excellent food, and the variety of accommodations, and this archipelago is an excellent choice for dual citizenship.

VANUATU - YOUR FUTURE IN PARADISE

Introduction

The Republic of Vanuatu is a Pacific Island Nation located in the South Pacific Ocean. It is about 1,750 Kilometers east of northern Australia, 540 Kilometers northeast of New Caledonia, east of New Guinea, south-east of Solomon Islands and west of Fiji. 

Vanuatu is a beautiful and peaceful place to live in. It is a scenic paradise and a tax haven archipelago comprising 83 small volcanic islands that cover 12,000 km2. The total population of Vanuatu today is 275, 064 and approximately 65 islands are inhabited. http://countrymeters.info/en/Vanuatu Formerly known as the New Hebrides, it was discovered and named by Captain Cook in 1774 as Vanuatu. It gained Independence from Britain and France on 30 July 1980.

 

The capital is Port Vila located in the center of the y-shaped islands on Efate, the third largest island. As first inhabited by Melanesians, the Ni-Vanuatu comprise 90% of the total population today. The second town is Luganville located on the largest island Espiritu Santo, North of Efate. Vanuatu has been divided into eight (8) jurisdictions, namely two (2) municipalities and six (6) provinces since 1994 : Port Vila Municipality and Luganville Municipality, Torba (Torres Islands, Banks Islands), Malampa (Malakula, Ambrym, Paama), Sanma (Santo, Malo), Shefa (Shepherds Group) and Tafea (Tanna, Aniwa, Futuna, Erromango, Aneityum). 

Vanuatu is known as the “happiest place in the world”. The people are very friendly and simple. It has a very rich culture and tradition. With an abundance of local resources, lifestyle is still very much on a subsistence scale. Most families produce enough for local consumption only. The local Ni Vanuatu speak 3 languages, mainly Bislama (Pidgin English) which is the National Language. English and French are the two (2) official languages under the Vanuatu Constitution.

 

After 39 years of Independence Vanuatu is catching up to the rest of the developing world. It is now progressing fast with new investors and heavy infrastructural assistance from the Australian, New Zealand, French and Chinese Government. It is today a cosmopolitan mix of people and ethnic groups who have made Vanuatu their home.

Vanuatu welcomes you to take this lifetime opportunity and be part of our happy family.
