Vanuatu

Vanuatu, officially known as the Republic of Vanuatu, is an archipelago nation, spread across 82 islands in the south Pacific Ocean. The country’s capital and largest city is Port Villa and its officialcial languages are Bislama, French and English – though over 100 languages are estimated to be spoken locally. The local currency is the Vanuatu VATU.

Vanuatu enjoys strong relationships with many powerful nations around the world, with close cultural and economic ties to Australia, New Zealand and much of the European Union. The country is also a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund.

Vanuatu represents most people’s idea of paradise. This largely undiscovered tropical chain of islands in the south Pacific is peaceful, vibrant and culturally diverse. As well as oering deserted beaches, rugged landscapes and ancient culture, Vanuatu also oers up a warm welcome to international travellers to its shores. But there’s much more to this island nation than white sand, blue skies and clear seas. Vanuatu oers a stable, secure, home from home for those who want it, as well as a passport oering incredible global freedom for investors wishing to spread their wings.
