Vanuatu Citizenship by Investment Program 

Launched in 2017, the Vanuatu citizenship Development Support Program (DSP), is one of the fastest citizenship by investment programs in the world. Foreign investors can receive their Vanuatu passport in two to three months. 

However, with the DSP, Vanuatu citizenship is only honorary and does not allow its holder to take part in any political life within the country meaning that these honorary citizens cannot vote or run for office.  

Please note that citizens of Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea and Yemen are not eligible for this program unless they have permanent residence outside those countries and have lived outside for more than 5 years.
