      Vanuatu Visa Policy

      Vanuatu has a visa policy that guides the immigration of foreigners. The current policy mandates all visitors to hold visas unless those from visa-exempt countries. They must also have passports valid for at least 6 months from the day they arrive on the Island; if the passport is below 6 months, they will not qualify for entry.

      Vanuatu has a visa waiver agreement with the European Union which is a mutual agreement that allows EU citizens to visit Vanuatu without needing visas, while Vanuatuans can go the other way without visas. This agreement allows contracting parties to stay in the Schengen Area for up to 90 days in a 180-day period visa-free.

      There is also a 30 day visa-free program for citizens of more than 80 nations. To ensure your status, you must check out the current visa-free list to know your eligibility before moving. You must apply for a visa if you don't qualify for visa-free entry.

      Vanuatu Travel Information For Visitors

      If you are a first-time traveler to Vanuatu, you want to make sure that you get all the information necessary to make your vacation comfortable. We provide insights and what to expect in this Pacific island.

      Communication: Vanuatuans speak English, but the local dialect is the predominant communication in the Island. You may not be lucky to meet a native who can speak English fluently though most understand the language. It will serve you well to learn a few words in Vanuatuan as you may your way through the Island. This will help you bond with the natives and enrich your experience immeasurably.

      Kastom: "Kastom" is the word the locals use instead of "Custom," which is basically the traditional rules guiding local life in Vanuatu. These rules are entrenched in the culture, and all members of society, including visitors, must respect them. For instance, women are required to wear clothes that cover their knees and shoulders when they are not on the beach. The local's custom is highly influenced by Christianity dating back to the first arrival of missionaries from the West. Make sure you respect their laws during your time here.

      Drink Responsibly: Alcohol is widely consumed in Vanuatu but with moderation. Kavas, which are drinking spots, serve alcoholic drinks, especially the kava drink, a root liquor indigenous to many Pacific islands in the region. Spending time at pubs and local spots in the village will help you assimilate with the locals faster as you learn cultural cues during conversations with them.

      Currency: Vanuatu has its local currency, which is used for distribution and exchange. The other dominant currency in the area is the Australian dollar which can be used to make purchases or exchanged for the local currency at the prevailing exchange rate. If you plan to buy local arts and crafts or other items on the Island, it is best you exchange your money for the local currency at the point of entry. Alternatively, you can use a credit or debit card, which is accepted everywhere.

       Seek Answers: The local culture can be confusing for many, especially if it is your first time here, so don't be afraid to ask questions about things you're not sure about. The people are quite friendly and will be willing to answer all of your questions politely. It is better to ask questions than make mistakes others find offensive.

      Time Is Slow: Time in most Pacific islands, including Vanuatu, is slow, so don't be in a hurry to do anything. The locals also do things slowly per their time zone and way of life, so be advised to exercise patience when ordering any service.

      Obey The Laws: Vanuatu is an island of sovereign laws, just like other countries, so respect them during your stay. Don't drink and drive, nor should you do anything that will constitute a public nuisance or disturb the peace.

      Know Your Visa Duration: If you have been issued a single entry visa, you can't use it more than once and are not allowed to stay on the Island longer than the allotted time. Check your visa to ensure the number of days you have been given. If your visa is for 30 or 90 days, stay per visit, don't spend a day more. For a longer stay, apply for a long-term visa. Leave the Island before your visa expires or on the day it is set to expire to avoid issues with the authorities.

      Work Responsibilities: Only a work visa permits you to work in Vanuatu; if you are caught working with any other visa apart from special clauses for the special category or student visa, you will be arrested and deported immediately.
