    In all fairness, its great that is a good backup option to have a second citzienship with Vanuata but how easy is it to get it and what are the requirements?

      Hi Danik, thank you for your comment and for the question. I’ll try to give a brief answer. Becoming a resident is actually fairly simple. Besides the normal visa procedures for employment, spouses, and dependent children, a Vanuatu residency can be obtained merely by providing a proof of stable income or by making an investment in the country.

      If you have a monthly income of $2,250, you need to go to a bank and ask the bank to certify your ability to deposit 250,000 Vanuatu vatu (about US$2,250) per month. Becoming a resident can be as simple as applying as a “self-funded resident” and that’s a major advantage. Hope this helps 🙂

    Vanuata looks like such a beautiful place. I didn’t realize there were so many perks to having a Vanuatuan passport!

    Vanuata seems like such a amazing place. I didn’t know all the advantages about having a Vanuatuan passport.

      Thank you for your comment, Kate. There are, indeed a lot of advantages to having a Vanuatu passport.

    Having a passport is certainly a privilege a lot of people are ready to pay for! Didn’t know it would be so easy to get one from Vanuatu.

    Uhm… Why is almost everybody calling it Vanuata instead of Vanuatu in the comments? Did I miss something? 😐
    Anyway, it sounds like a very nice option. It reminds me a bit of “Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life”, by Neil Strauss. There, he gets a passport on an island for confidentiality & co., but I can’t remember if it’s part of Vanuatu or somewhere else. While it is a very nice destination and the passport offers many perks, I’d love to have a passport from a place I can visit often. And Vanuatu is just too far from me. 🙁

      Hahaha, good remark. I guess one person misspelled it and a bunch of others followed. That sounds like an interesting book, I might even end up reading it. Thanks for the recommendation 🙂

    It all sounds so nice when the place is so beautiful, and no breach of confidentiality, tax haven, and more. It seems like you must have the second citizenship of a country like that. Sadly I am not allowed to have dual citizenship. But best wishes for you.

      I am aware of that Shreya and it’s really sad that a country in the 21st century doesn’t allow dual citizenship but it is what it is. Thank you for your comment.

    Wow, I imagined it would be a lot more complicated! But at least you’re able to have dual citizenship and I wish you good luck with that!

    I had no idea Vanuatu’s citizenship is one of the easiest one to obtain. Also the fact that its passport allows you to travel visa-free to over 122 countries makes it very appealing. It wouldn’t be too bad to have a second home in a Pacific island after all 😀

    Interesting. Never heard that Vanuatu citizenship is such a thing. I am applying for a passport of Finland soon, which is also considered a good one.

      Oh, it sure is, Alexander. Having a Finland citizenship is awesome too 🙂 I wish you the best of luck with it.
