Living in Vanuatu: Vanuatu is a beautiful remote, tax-free tropical paradise. It is known not only for its great location and climate, but also as a great place owning and operating a business.
Life on Vanuatu is far from hectic. As anyone who has visited the islands before - in the South Pacific or elsewhere - hectic is one of the last words you would use to describe island life. People in the islands, with Vanuatu being no exception, often prefer to relax and take life as it comes. As with relocating anywhere, it is important to consider not only your own position and finance, but also the situation and customs of the place to which you will be moving.
Costs of living are relatively low, but as with any other small island nation, Vanuatu relies on imports, which drives up prices a lot on items that cannot be produced locally. The islands have a very accessible system of banks, internet and mobile networks. This makes it very easy to move to Vanuatu and yet still maintain a good and active connection with other places in the world.
Sugary white sand, clear blue waters and the subtle whisper of palms swaying in the cooling ocean breeze, Vanuatu certainly offers up a fair share of tropical relaxation, though, this South Pacific archipelago isn't just about beach front repose. Whether you're a culture cat seeking an authentic island experience, or an adventurer hoping for a few thrills, Vanuatu ticks all the boxes for a perfect island holiday.
The sandy shores of its capital, Port Vila, beckon to singles, couples and families alike where you can explore colourful handicraft markets, visit the beautiful Mele Cascades, zipline through the treetops or try horse riding along the beach – all within a short distance from a large choice of accommodation. If adventure is what you seek, head to Espiritu Santo to dive one of the world's best shipwrecks - The SS President Coolidge – enjoy the abundance of colourful marine life in one of many pristine blue holes.
Up the ante at Tanna Island and take a short walk to the rim of Mt Yasur, one of the world’s most accessible active volcanoes, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience....or swim in underwater caves. You’ll find plenty of choices to full everyday with something exciting.
