Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment

Vanuatu mapSitting just between New Zealand and Australia, Vanuatu has been voted several times the happiest place on the planet. The tropical chain of Vanuatu islands in the Pacific Ocean has no military at all, Vanuatu is peaceful country despite its immense cultural diversity (over 100 languages are spoken).

Vanuatu has the highest Happy Planet Index Score outside of the Americas. People living in Vanuatu have greater well-being than those living in Japan. Happiness has become a part of the national brand of the Republic of Vanuatu. The capital city of Vanuatu is Port Vila located on the island of Efate. Albeit small in size and population (44,000), Port Vila boasts a well-developed banking and financial infrastructure with approximately seven banks serving the international financial industry and a range of highly professional lawyers, accountants and financial advisers including big-name international firms.

The Vanuatu Capital Investment Immigration Plan is endorsed and guaranteed by the government of Vanuatu and was fully ratified in the constitution of the Nation on September 2013. The objective of the Plan is to create local jobs, stimulate the economy and keep the national budget balanced.
