Entry to, and residence in, Vanuatu is governed by the National Immigration Act (Cap 66) as amended and by Immigration Orders issued by the Minister.

Entry to Vanuatu for anything more than a short tourist or business visit is strictly controlled and Permits to Enter and Reside are normally issued to those who can in some way make a positive contribution to the economic development of Vanuatu.

On your flights to Vanuatu, you'll be provided an immigration form. This is a legal document that must be filled in correctly, and clear completion of the form will allow a smooth arrival so that you can kickstart your time in Vanuatu.

Visitors Permits

People from countries from which entry into Vanuatu is authorised don't need a visa if travelling for a holiday, visiting friends and family, researching business potential in Vanuatu or conducting meetings (but not employed in Vanuatu). This includes citizens of over 120 jurisdictions, including Australia, New Zealand and most South Pacific nations. You must be in possession of a confirmed onward or return ticket, have sufficient funds and a passport valid for six months beyond intended stay. This entitles them to stay in Vanuatu for up to either 30 or 90 days (depending on passport held). Visitors from some countries will require a visa beforehand to ensure that their entry is authorised. Applications need to be made to the appropriate consulate or embassy for the country of residence.
