Conditions of admission
Only the following will be required to enter Vanuatu from July 1:
An RAT result within 24 hours of departure or a certificate of infection and recovery within 28 days of departure, if they have recently had Covid-19, is required.
Even though we encourage all people to follow the health advice and ensure that they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, it is important to note that the Vanuatu Government advises. No proof of vaccination will be required for any traveller, regardless of age or nationality. This helps to keep us all safe.”
Arrival testing is not required in Vanuatu. Tourists are expected to do their part to ensure the safety of both themselves and the people they encounter by following basic hygiene precautions and maintaining a physical distance.
Covid-19-positive travellers must stay in an approved, government-managed facility for a minimum of seven days, which may include hotels and resorts or other government health centres, depending on availability.
Health Recovery Level 1 status has been achieved in both Shefa, the capital of Vanuatu and Sanma, the country’s largest island, and both will reopen to tourists on July 1 in accordance with the Vanuatu Government’s Roadmap to Reopening.
