VanuatuCitizenship By Investment
The Vanuatu Citizenship Program (Development Support Program – DSP), incepted by the Government of Vanuatu in 2017, allows foreign investors to obtain the citizenship of Vanuatu in exchange of financial contribution to the country.
- Non-refundable financial contribution to the designated Government Fund
- Investment in an approved real estate
The total amount of the contribution depends on the number of applicants and their age.
Applicants have the option to include their spouse, as well as children under 30 years of age. Additionally, parents or grandparents can be included in the CBI application if they are financially dependent on the main applicant.
In order to qualify for Vanuatu citizenship by investment program, applicants need to have a clear criminal record and provide proof of funds amounting to at least US$ 250,000. They have also to pass due diligence review conducted by the Financial Intelligence Unit of Vanuatu. However, individuals from Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, or Yemen are ineligible for the program, unless they hold permanent residency outside of these countries and have resided there for a duration exceeding 5 years.
Vanuatu citizenship acquired through the citizenship by investment program can be inherited by future generations. Dual nationality is permissible in Vanuatu, and CBI applicants are not obligated to relinquish their current nationality(s).
