    Amendments to the Citizenship Act [Cap 112]

    The Citizenship Act has been amended a number of times since 2013 and most recently in 2021. More insights on the amendments are provided by the attachments under Legislative Framework.

    Interestingly, as per the amendments Vanuatu now recognises DUAL CITIZENSHIP. This practically means that a citizen of Vanuatu or of a state of other than Vanuatu may be granted dual citizenship.

    The Citizenship Applications’ Fees and the actual Citizenship (Certificate) Fees have also been changed. [Please refer to the table of 'Fees and Charges' under Citizenship].
