Vanuatu Citizenship and passport by Investment Program
Vanuatu or officially the Republic of Vanuatu (Ripablik blong Vanuatu), is an island country located in the South Pacific Ocean. It is an archipelago of volcanic origin and is located approximately 1,750 km northeast of Australia, 500 km northeast of New Caledonia, western Fiji, southeast of the Solomon Islands, and near New Guinea.
Launched in 2017, the Vanuatu citizenship Development Support Program (DSP), is one of the fastest citizenships by investment programs in the world. Foreign investors can receive their Vanuatu passports in 2 to 3 months.
However, with the DSP, Vanuatu citizenship is only honorary and does not allow its holder to take part in any political life within the country meaning that these honorary citizens cannot vote or run for office.
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.
