    Country Overview

    With 83 stunning islands, Vanuatu is a South Pacific Ocean nation stretching 1,300 kilometres. No wonder Vanuatu is now one of the most popular tourist destinations as well as a home for people seeking a permanent move to paradise.


    Vanuatu is located 500 miles (ca. 805 km) west of Fiji Island and combines 83 tropical islands just 1100 miles (ca. 1,770 km) east of Australia. The Vanuatu islands are famous for their stunning beaches, laid-back lifestyle, and friendly people.

    Economy and Population

    Before European colonization in the 18th century, the New Hebrides welcomed multiple waves of new inhabitants, each bringing a new language and culture. Today, Vanuatu is home to just over 307,000 people with most of them speaking the official language Bislama and some of the population speaking either English or French.

    Two-thirds of the population live off small-scale farming with overseas finance and tourism, in particular, growing ever more central to the economy of Vanuatu.
