Vanuatu Citizenship program expanded the list of accepted currencies!

Breaking news from the Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program! Vanuatu now accepts payments from the new citizens in United States Dollar (USD), Australian Dollar (AUD), New Zealand Dollar (NZD) and Japanese yen (JPY).


Don't forget that the Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program is the only naturalisation process, where the full cost can be paid by cryptocurrencies!


Another necessary amendment of the Citizenship (Development Support Program Regulations) Order no.33 of 2019 is that several financial institutes will now be involved in the passport scheme instead of the National Bank. Until now, only the National Bank of Vanuatu handled the citizenship by investment program. According to the law, the following financial institutes may provide their services for wealthy investors who wish to become citizens of Vanuatu through investment. 


  • National Bank of Vanuatu
  • Bred Bank
  • Bank South Pacific (Vanuatu) Limited
  • ANZ Bank (Vanuatu) Limited
  • Vanfuteng Bank
  • (and other commercial banks, if the Commission approves those)


Here is the Amendment to Citizenship (Development Support Program) Regulation Order no. 124 and 125.

Why should I become a Vanuatu citizen?


Vanuatu offers the fastest and the most cost-efficient citizenship program globally. To take the passport usually takes only maximum of two months (7-8 weeks).


Holders of a Vanuatu passport can enter visa-free in 129 countries, including the UK, EU, Ireland, Russia, HK, Singapore, the Caribbean region, and the Commonwealth countries. 


You can become a citizen of Vanuatu without visiting the country only by donating to help the country's economic and political objectives and the recovery from the recent natural disasters. However, don't forget that you must pass the stringent and thorough due diligence process! 


How much is a Vanuatu Passport?


First of all, there is a donation for the government, but additional fees and costs also apply.


  • A single investor donates US$130,000
  • An investor + the spouse donate US$150,000
  • An investor + spouse + two children (-18) donate US$180,000.
