Vanuatu’s Pathway to Citizenship Overview

The Vanuatu Capital Investment Immigration Plan (CIIP) is a Citizenship by Investment program created to attract foreign investment. The country currently only provides one option through this program, the CNO Fund, dedicated to Vanuatu’s production of coconut oil meant for electricity generation. In return, Vanuatu provides not only a direct, straightforward path to Citizenship but also promises of a return on the investment.

There are other programs available in Vanuatu, though do not hold any worthwhile consideration due to the fact they represent no possibility of profitability. Investment Visa recommends the CIIP as the program to choose going forward.

How to get the Vanuatu Golden Visa and become a Citizen

The Vanuatu citizenship requirements are not as extensive in comparison to other Residency or Citizenship by Investment programs. This greatly expedites the process of obtaining the Vanuatuan Golden Visa. Despite not requiring as many documents, you can expect to provide the initial application form, a valid copy of your passport, proof of financial resources, a clean criminal record, and a medical certificate, among others.

Contacting Investment Visa is the first step to ensure the Vanuatu citizenship is yours. Our expert team of advisors has in-depth knowledge of how to navigate the intricacies of this process and has guided hundreds of like-minded investors in obtaining golden visas and Golden Visas all over the world.

Visa-free Travel

The friendliness of the Vanuatuan is known all through the world, and this is recognized worldwide. Travel visa-free to more than 90 countries with the Vanuatu passport in hand.

One of the Most Affordable Programs

Vanuatu’s CIIP – CNO Future Fund is one of the most affordable Citizenship by Investment programs in the world. Become a holder of the Vanuatu passport with investment opportunities starting at USD $138,000.

No Stay Requirements

The process to obtain Vanuatu’s citizenship can be done entirely remotely. Once you become a citizen, the country demands no residency requirements at all, and you will not need to travel to Vanuatu at any point to maintain Citizenship.

Investment Options for the Vanuatu Golden Visa

The Vanuatu Golden Visa envisions a brighter future for the country and the world, with an investment in the environment-friendly and sustainable production of green energy for everyone.


Capital Investment Immigration Plan (CIIP) - CNO Future Fund

With an investment of USD $138,000 in Vanuatu’s production of coconut oil you can not only obtain Citizenship, but also a guaranteed return on the investment, plus a deep sense of satisfaction, knowing you have played a key role in ensuring Vanuatu’s economic growth.

Other Options 

Development Support Fund (DSP)

The Vanuatu Development Support Fund is an alternative Citizenship by Investment program available in the country. The key difference is that this mechanism is based upon donations and contributions, and thus, represents no opportunity for a return or profitability.

Real Estate Option (REO)

While this program can also represent a worthwhile opportunity, it is still in its infancy, and only four properties have been approved by the Vanuatuan government. Investment Visa does not recommend pursuing this option at this time.

Investing in the CIIP – CNO Future Fund

Vanuatu has its goals set to build a brighter and more sustainable future through the implementation of the CNO Future Fund.

Due to the abundance of coconut palm trees in the country, Vanuatu has perfected the extraction of copra, the dried contents of a coconut, which is essential to the production of coconut oil. Coconut oil is fundamental to Vanuatu’s strategy of 100% renewable energy in electricity generation, which will further stimulate the country’s economy, and propel Vanuatu’s status even further.

Investing in the CNO Fund represents a real future-proof opportunity in terms of profitability, allowing you to exit the investment after obtaining a return and Citizenship.


Despite being fairly more direct and clearer than most other programs, it is always important to ensure the process is going accordingly. This is where Investment Visa comes in, with our team of experts ready to help you. Find below the step-by-step guide they constructed to better understand how the process works.
