How to get your Citizenship

Your decision to take a second dual citizenship is your first step towards becoming a Vanuatu Citizen. Once your application is 'pre-approved' you are required to make your first payment through the allocated bank account. This is non-refundable.  The process takes up to 30 days to complete the citizenship process subject to the applicant's nationality and the probity checks and due diligence.

Once the application has been approved, the applicant is required to attend the nominated Government of Vanuatu Consul. Hong Kong has the default nominated Consul.

At the nominated Consul the applicant will participate in the Oath of Allegiance ceremony after taking the Oath the applicant will be granted his or her citizenship and receive their Vanuatu passport. Thereafter the applicant is entitled to his or her full Vanuatu citizenship benefits and rights.

With your Vanuatu passport you will be entitled to visa free travel to 124 countries.

Your Citizenship is for life and there is no requirement to visit Vanuatu.
