Vanuatu Citizenship Program & Benefits
In January 2017, the Government of the Republic of Vanuatu launched their Development Support Program (VDSP) for the purpose of raising funds to support infrastructure and promoting economic development of Vanuatu. The DSP was enacted by the Vanuatu Government under the Citizenship Act (CAP 112) with the powers conferred on the Prime Minister by Section 20 of the Citizenship Act (112) Order No.215 of 2016.
