Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program

Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment

Our Programs

Initially launched in 2017, Vanuatu's Citizenship by Investment program invites applicants to invest into a local development fund. Officially termed the "Development Support Programme" (DSP), this initiative is renowned for being one of the quickest routes to dual citizenship and a second passport worldwide. Uniquely, it's the sole program of its nature in the Asia-Pacific region. Vanuatu, composed of an archipelago of 80 islands situated to the east of Australia in the South Pacific, is a member of the Commonwealth.
