Vanuatu – a slice of paradise at the end of the world

The program of citizenship by investment offered by Vanuatu
was first introduced in early 2016 and was definitively adopted by the
Vanuatu government in April 2017. The goal of the program
is to create jobs in the country, stimulate the economy, and keep
the national budget balanced.
