Vanuatu Citizenship By Investment Program

Launched in 2017, the Vanuatu citizenship Development Support Program (DSP), is one of the fastest citizenship by investment programs in the world. Foreign investors can receive their Vanuatu passports in 2 to 3 months.

Please note that citizens of Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea and Yemen are not eligible for this program unless they have permanent residence outside those countries and have lived outside for more than five (5) years.
