Composed of a series of eighty islands, Vanuatu is the ultimate paradise for expats planning to upgrade their lifestyles. As an island nation by the South Pacific Ocean, Vanuatu is composed of turquoise blue water, lush tropical rainforests, and mountains. Thanks to Vanuatu’s citizenship by investment, international investors can now acquire passports on this stunning island in only two months.
MCS Offshore Corporate Services now offers a service to help obtaining a Vanuatu citizenship. More information can be found on their website.
Vanuatu citizenship by investment is a program awarding qualifying investors with passports in return for an investment in the region’s economic prosperity. Established in 2017, the program is considered as the only scheme in the South Pacific–known as the Vanuatu Citizenship Development Support Program (DSP)–the fastest way for expats to get passports through investment.
The citizenship program is not the cheapest option, but it is surely one of the simplest ways to obtain citizenship, with relatively few investor requirements. On top of that, owning a Vanuatu citizenship is specifically rewarding for private individuals seeking some quiet and peace.
There are many Vanuatu citizenship benefits to keep in mind. From diversifying assets and living in an English-speaking nation that looks like paradise to the extra security of having a plan B in case of crises such as a pandemic, Vanuatu citizenship certainly broadens a person’s horizons.
Dr Steven Wong, founder of MCS Corporate Services, has published a video on the subject here.
Some of the benefits include no physical residence, visit or interview needed; receiving the passport within two months, visa-free or visa-on-arrival travel to ninety-six countries, including Russia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the UK; no personal taxation (no wealth taxes, income taxes, gift, or inheritance); minimum investment from $130,000; and the entire family is qualified for passports.
The best benefit of the Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program is that a Vanuatu passport grants an individual visa to free travel to different countries. Also, Vanuatuan citizens can benefit from quick track processing when traveling to Commonwealth nations such as New Zealand, Canada, and Australia. With this citizenship, anyone can stay six months per year in the UK, even without a visa.
But there are a few requirements to consider before applying. Applicants must be over 18 and under 65 when applying. They also have a minimum non-refundable investment of $130,000, have a clean criminal record, and have an exceeding or equivalent to $250,000 in the bank account. Also, the program isn’t open to nationals from Yemen, Syria, North Korea, Iraq, or Iran unless the person has a permanent residence outside such nations.
