For You

Vanuatu

Vanuatu is an island nation located in the romantic South Pacific. This beautiful island is located east of Australia, north-east of New Caledonia, west of Fiji and south of the Solomon Islands.

Its people are famed for their hospitality, and the government is creating vast business opportunities by establishing an environment that attracts ambitious investors through low taxation and a leading Citizenship by Investment program.

Vanuatu has been seeking to boost its economy through immigration investment for several years, even amending its constitution in 2012 to permit dual citizenship.  In 2017, the Vanuatu Development Support Program (DSP) was created by the government to facilitate and attract overseas investors.  It is the only program of its type in the South Pacific.

TWS Legal Consultants’ immigration lawyers, who are registered with the Dubai Legal Affairs Department, can advise and represent you on making a Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment application.  We are a fully digital law firm and can organise appointments via video conferencing if you are based abroad.
