The Vanuatu Business Resort in planning is a 30 minute sealed road shuttle bus ride into Port Vila from the pictured luxury vacation and/or permanent resident Business Resort. The 20 Acre Island luxury development shall be set amongst one kilometer of South Pacific Ocean frontage.
The magic of this luxury resort goes well with the World Visa planned for Vanuatu with its Honorary Citizenship Development Support Program (HCDSP). HCDSP came into effect by the Government of Republic of Vanuatu in March 2017. This Citizenship Program permits Dual Citizenship for citizens of the Republic of Vanuatu.
Citizenship Applicants are entitled to retain their original citizenship or use any of the new Citizenship’s obtained through the Partnership’s World Visa Program such as Australia, Canada, Caribbean (TCI), Hong Kong, Mexico, Philippines, USA and Vanuatu. The HCDSP Program is open to apply for all interested applicants.

Vanuatu Development Support Program
The citizenships being provided under the Vanuatu Development Support Program (VDSP) was initiated by the Vanuatu Citizenship Commission to Promote and Market the Vanuatu Honorary Citizenship globally. This program is part of a fast-track citizenship program which is totally legal and follows an approved and legislated process. Several successful applicants have been approved and received their Citizenship Certificates as well as their passports.
The Vanuatu Government has approved it’s designated agents to facilitate applications under the Vanuatu Development Support Program as specified in it’s agreement with the Vanuatu Citizenship Commission.
Therefore, any interested clients who wish to obtain a Vanuatu Honorary Citizenship are requested to contact one of the selected Agents for assistance on the citizenship process.
This process allows for checks and balances as well as internal transparency so that when an applicant is successful with his or her application, he/she receives a Citizenship Certificate very quickly as well as a new Vanuatu passport.
Vanuatu also embraces the Schengen Passport Control Program
The Schengen Area is an area comprising 26 European states that have officially abolished passport and all other types of border control at their mutual borders. The area mostly functions as a single country for international travel purposes, with a common visa policy. The area is named after the Schengen Agreement. States in the Schengen Area have eliminated border controls with other Schengen members and strengthened border controls with non-Schengen countries.
Following the 13 November 2016 attacks in Paris, a number of countries in the Schengen area have tightened their border controls. Travellers may be required to produce their passport when crossing borders within the Schengen area. Always carry your passport at international railway stations and airports just in case. The tighter border controls have not changed visa arrangements as described above. See country advisories for details of entry and exit arrangements.
Under the Schengen agreement, transiting from one country to another within the Schengen area is done without border controls. In fact, the Schengen visa makes it possible to visit all the countries in the Schengen area and to cross internal borders without further formalities.
But be careful, the European Union and the Schengen area are two different zones! The list below will enable you to see the difference and check that the countries where you are planning to stay are all in the Schengen area.
Other Countries signing up with the Schengen Agreement include:
Visas are not required by visitors from the following countries for visit up to 90 days in a 6 month period:
All European Union Countries, Albania, Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica, El Salvador, Georgia, Grenada, Guatemala, Holy See, Honduras, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Kiribati, Macao, Macedonia, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Palau, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, San Marino, Serbia, Seychelles, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, Timor-Leste (East Timor), Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, United Arab Emirates, United States, Uruguay, Vanuatu, Vatican City and Venezuela.
The Partnership’s World Visa currently works with Trade Treaty Countries to expedite Temporary Visas for a Country of Choice Pending Permanent Visas.
Many countries having Trade Treaties between each other have special Rules for the Free Movement of People and terms of residency.
As an example, Australia provides guaranteed access to Chinese citizens for the following categories:
Intra-corporate transferees and independent executives for up to four years (including executives, managers and specialists)
Contractual service suppliers for up to four years; including guaranteed access for up to a combined total of 1,800 per year in four occupations.
Chinese chefs, WuShu martial arts coaches, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners and Mandarin language tutors (subject to meeting standard immigration requirements);
Installers and servicers for up to 3 months; and
Business visitors for up to 90 days, or 6 months for business visitors who are service sellers.
A Possible Short Cut to a Valid Country Visa
NOTE: The Partnership has made a preliminary application seeking an investment program into Vanuatu as a Limited Partnership in exchange for the Vanuatu Government granting the Partnership’s Members the right to make separate applications for Citizenship or Permanent Residency under the VSDP Program above using the Partnership’s Investment Program in Vanuatu as outlined above.
What that means to the Partnership’s Visa Members, notwithstanding that the Visa Members are investing through the Hong Kong Trustee for investment into the Partnership’s USA Bank Holding Company, a Bank Branch shall be established in Vanuatu subject to Government and FRB Approval for the Partnership’s Export /Import Business and related Ventures.
Accordingly, and subject to the Vanuatu’s Government approval, each and every Partnership Member may have the opportunity to obtain Vanuatu Citizenship pending waiting on a Permanent Visa in their initial Country of Choice, such as USA, Australia or elsewhere.
How this Would Work
The Plan would be for the Partnership to complete the Purchase of the Ocean Experience (Ship Hotel) for conversion into a short and long term stay cruising Business Resort for short cruising initially between the USA East and West Ports including Hawaii on route to Australia via Vanuatu and Hong Kong.
The initial plan would be to ensure the Ocean Experience would be established with all Bank Branch opportunities for maintaining the Partnership’s Export/Import business operation pending developing the initial Business Resort in Vanuatu.

BUSINESS IN VANUATU
Vanuatu has a very well developed Offshore Finance Centre operating since 1971.
There are no income taxes, withholding taxes, capital gains taxes, gift, death, estate or succession duties applying to companies, trusts or individuals.
Under the Vanuatu International Companies Act, companies have a 20-year guarantee against taxes, duties and exchange controls.
Port Vila remains open until London and European markets open, thus completing the time bridge from New York to London.
Vanuatu is in a uniquely advantageous time zone for the location of a Financial Center.
The standard business day commences at 7:30am in the capital and financial center, Port Vila. This allows a thirty-minute overlap with New York so that the New York closing markets are known and available to Port Vila early in the working day.
Port Vila office hours are three hours ahead of Hong Kong & Singapore. Thus, Vanuatu fills an important time position between world markets.
Financial Transactions, which may be negotiated in Hong Kong or Singapore during the day can be domiciled in Vanuatu in real time.
