COUNTRY BACKGROUND Vanuatu

Vanuatu is a small nation comprised of a group of islands located in the South Pacific. The islands give their visitors a return to nature – far from the flashy resorts and cruiseship ports that litter other tropical islands. Enjoy beautiful deserted beaches and unspoilt landscapes throughout the island. Various colonisers, each speaking a different language, relocated to the Melanesian islands in the millennia leading to the European exploration. That kind of settlement pattern laid the ground for the multifaceted linguistic diversity in Vanuatu.
Vanuatu has been declared the happiest place on the planet several times, and it’s a peaceful country despite its immense cultural diversity. Vanuatu is most people’s idea of paradise. Still, other than just a vacation destination, now it can become a place to live, work or retire. As the only Citizenship by Investment Program of its type in the Asia Pacific Hemisphere, Vanuatu Citizenship is as different as it is relevant to hold.
