A Complete Guide on How to Apply for Vanuatu Citizenship Online

Whether it becomes your sole citizenship, or you retain dual citizenship with your current country, fast-track citizenship with Vanuatu is the quickest path to a new passport. In addition to the ability to travel to and reside in an amazing and beautiful country, there other benefits of citizenship.

Financial: Vanuatu’s taxes continue to be nearly non-existent. A Value Added Tax (VAT) of 12.5% on imports means that Vanuatu’s cost of living isn’t lower than most large countries, however there are no other personal or business taxes. The offshore financial center offers international banking, long established financial services, and a low regulation business environment.

Travel: A Vanuatu passport allows easy travel (visa-free or visa on arrival) to more than 114 countries. It is the only low cost and fast citizenship program that offers a passport with visa-free travel to Russia without restriction on business and work travel.

Convenience: You could have a new Vanuatu passport in your hand in as little as one month, and the investment required is among the lowest in the world. Partner with VRP Mena by following the step by step guide below, and your goal of second citizenship is only weeks away.
