Vanuatu, officially known as Republic of Vanuatu, a South Pacific Ocean nation, is the only country in the Asia-Pacific offering Citizenship by Investment. The Vanuatu Development Support Programme (DSP), created in 2017, is one of the fastest paths to a second citizenship. Thanks to the increasing interest in the programme, it has become the government’s biggest source of income.
The remote location, favourable offshore tax regimes and a straightforward application process makes it very attractive for foreign investors. A citizenship from Vanuatu can give its owners exactly what they’re looking for: financial freedom and mobility for an affordable cost.
