1. Initial Due Diligence

Step 1 is carried out by the Vanuatu “Financial Intelligence Unit” (FIU), Immigration Department and Interpol leading to the issue of letter of clearance for Citizenship, subject to completing the remaining document and process formalities.


A Due Diligence Fee of USD 5,000 (including administration fee) is submitted with Stage 1 documents. This fee is only taken once PSCVL has reasonable confidence that the Due Diligence process will be successfully completed.



Vanuatu's Citizenship by Investment Programs are known as the quickest and most straight forward globally.

The Due Diligence process is normally 7-10 days.

2. Full Document Submission

Upon written confirmation of no adverse findings by the FIU, Immigration Department and Interpol the applicant submits a completed application form with all the Stage 2 documents together with the application payment.


The Citizenship Fees and minimum investment amount are mandated by the Government and paid via a Government Designated Agent such as PSCVL.


The Citizenship Commission Committee sits twice a month during which applications are considered over a one day sitting.


3 Citizenship & Investment

Following receipt of written confirmation of Citizenship, the new Citizen takes a short Oath and receives their Vanuatu Citizenship Certificate as well as their Vanuatu Passport.


The Ceremony may be held electronically via Zoom/Skype and does not require the citizen to fly to Vanuatu.


Once citizenship is granted the share subscription will be processed. The new Citizen will then be issued redeemable preference shares in Cocoa Sustainable Fund Limited­­­.


The share certificate will be couriered via DHL to the new Citizen along with their Citizen Certificate/s and passport/s.


You are eligible for Vanuatu Citizenship as long as you pass the Government due diligence process, and you are able to pay the one-off investment.
