Vanuatu is an independent Commonwealth State having gained independence from the UK and France in 1980. It is a South Pacific Ocean nation made up of roughly 80 islands that stretch 1,300 kilometers. Vanuatu is full of natural beauties and is renowned for its crystal clear waters.
More than 100 languages are found in Vanuatu, making it per capita the world’s most linguistically diverse country. However the majority of the islands speak English.
Vanuatu has a population of about 202,609 people (2004). Its capital of Vanuatu is Port Vila.
Long known as a tax haven, Vanuatu has been taking steps since 2008 to increase transparency; still, financial services remain an important part of the economy, and new citizens can enjoy a friendly tax regime with no income, withholding, capital gains, or inheritance tax.
