Visitors to Vanuatu must obtain a visa unless they travel on a passport from one of the visa exempt countries. All visitors must hold a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival. [1] Vanuatu signed a mutual visa-waiver agreement with the European Union on 28 May 2015 which was ratified on 15 December 2015.[2] This agreement allows all citizens of states that are contracting parties to the Schengen Agreement to stay without a visa for a maximum period of 90 days in any 180-day period.[3]
