Vanuatu will join the list of quarantine-free destinations from 1 July, 2022. 

Vanuatu will open its borders to fully-vaccinated international travellers with no quarantine or arrival caps with the country’s national carrier, Air Vanuatu.

This is fantastic news for the local tourism industry and future international travellers, says the CEO of the Vanuatu Tourism Office, Mrs. Adela Issachar Aru.

“We’ve kept Vanuatu beautiful, and we’re thrilled to be welcoming back travellers back to our shores come July,” says Mrs. Issachar Aru. “We’ll be using the next two months to help ready our tourism operators to ensure visitors can safely experience the very best of our islands.

The country will still have some entry requirements in place to ensure that both visitors and locals alike are kept safe when travelling within its islands. These requirements will include being fully vaccinated, pre-departure tests and undertaking a health clearance, as well as arrival testing. 

Flights are available to book from today, with Air Vanuatu resuming its services with six non-stop flights from Sydney, one direct service a week from Melbourne, and three non-stop flights a week from Brisbane to Port Vila, two weekly services from Auckland and three services a week from Noumea, with onward connections to 27 destinations within Vanuatu.
