Required Documents to Apply
Vanuatu is an archipelago nation that consists of 83 islands. It is located in the South Pacific, north of New Zealand. The country is one of the most beautiful places on earth, which is why many photographers like to travel to Vanuatu. The children especially are very photogenic, but the scenery is nothing less either. Some of the beaches are so perfect that you would think someone made them in CGI. Other attractions in Vanuatu include the Yasur Volcano on Tana, the Coolidge dive in Santo, and land diving in Pentecost. Nevertheless, for a relaxing vacation, the beaches are all you need. Just keep in mind that you should visit more than one beach.
Before you leave for Vanuatu, you need to check if you need a visa to cross its border. Fortunately, the visa policy of Vanuatu is quite liberal, so chances are that you only need your passport. That is because the citizens of 120 countries and jurisdictions can enter Vanuatu and stay there for up to 90 days. The stay length differs depending on the nationality, but it cannot be less than 30 days, which is more than enough for a vacation. All the other nationalities must obtain a visa before arrival.
In case you want to see if your country of origin is on the list of visa-exempt countries or not, you can take a look at the list in the visa policy of Vanuatu. However, we suggest that you use iVisa’s Visa Checker instead. It is a simple tool that tells you what you need to know in just a few clicks. First, you need to access the feature by clicking on the Visa Checker in the top right corner of this page. Then, you must select your country of origin from the drag-down menu on the left and add Vanuatu in the box on the right. The result will tell you if you need a Vanuatu visa, and if you do, you will be provided a list of the nearest embassies.
Since electronic visas are not available for Vanuatu, iVisa does not process applications. If that changes in the future, we will let you know. In the meantime, all we can offer you is information, which is why our support service is available to you 24/7. There is no charge.
The next thing you want to do after finding out in which category you are is to check out the visa requirements. You have the option of doing your research online, but we advise caution because the information you find online is not always the most reliable. As an alternative, we advise you to call the issuing authority and ask about the requirements. It is the most legitimate source of information. In the meantime, what we can tell you is that all applicants must have a valid passport that does not expire for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Vanuatu.
We are sorry that we cannot help you get your visa for Vanuatu, but we hope that the information above allows you to move in the right direction.
