procedure for obtaining citizenship
PROCEDURE
Swearing in
and obtaining
a passport
Preliminary check
Approval and fulfilment of the investment condition
Preparation of documents
FIU check
1 DAY
Preliminary check
The lawyer checks the applicant’s documents and searches for information about him in international databases. This is necessary to reduce the risk of denial of citizenship: if there is such a risk, we will detect it in time, and lawyers will offer a solution.

The verification is confidential: only you and the lawyers who work with your application will know about the results. For verification, you only need a passport.
From 3 days
Preparation of the first part of the documents
The investor and lawyers prepare documents for verification by the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). Usually, she needs a passport, a criminal record and a CV — a short story about the life and career of the applicant.
Up to 1 week
FIU check
Lawyers send the documents to the program agent in Vanuatu, and he transfers them to the FIU. There, the initial check of the investor and his family is carried out.

The official deadline is 1 week, but the check is usually completed in 3−4 days.
Up to 2 weeks
Preparation of the second part of the documents
Once FIU approval is received, lawyers begin preparing the remaining documents for participation in the program. The investor provides personal and financial documents, and lawyers certify copies and fill out forms.
Up to 2 weeks
Submission and consideration of an application
The investor transfers 25% of the investment under the program. Lawyers send an application and a package of documents to Vanuatu. The Screening Committee and Citizenship Commission review them. Verification takes up to 2 weeks.
Up to 90 days
Approval and fulfilment of the investment condition
The Citizenship Commission sends a notice of approval of the application. The investor fulfils the investment condition — he pays the remaining 75% of the contribution. For this, he is given 90 days.
Up to 2 weeks
Swearing in and obtaining a passport
When the investment is credited, the Citizenship Commission issues a certificate of naturalization and submits a request for a passport to the passport office.

To obtain a passport, you need to take an oath. This can be done in two ways: fly to Vanuatu or invite the swearing-in commissioner and migration officer to a place convenient for investors.

The investor and his wife take the oath.
