Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program - Aeria view of the island

Whether it’s for a short-lived vacation or long-term relocation, there’s no denying that the South Pacific island of Vanuatu is a slice of heaven that is as close to paradise as we are ever likely to get on the planet. From the azure ocean water and pristine beaches to the low cost of living and socio-economic and political stability of the country, it’s not difficult to see why so many foreign nationals choose the Vanuatu Citizenship Development Support Program as their preferred path to a second passport for themselves and their family.

This is because many people tend to note better-known islands like Hawaii, Fiji, Bali and Bora Bora as their top places to visit. However, these travellers have probably never heard of Vanuatu. In fact, the HuffPost lists Vanuatu as “the most underrated island paradise on Earth”. And maybe that’s a good thing because once the world finds out about this small nation, Vanuatu could easily become one of the most talked-about island-escapes around the globe.
