Prior to travel, you need to register your details in the Vanuatu Electronic Traveller System. Where possible, please complete the registration form well in advance of your travel to Vanuatu.
Once your travel has been approved by the Government of Vanuatu you will be required to update your registration by adding information to provide your health clearance to travel (including potential information on COVID-19 exposure and current symptoms). This must be completed 24-72 hours in advance of your flight. You will receive an email to prompt you to answer these questions on the Vanuatu Electronic Traveller System website.
Do I need to be tested before I travel?
If you are travelling from a region or country listed below you must have a COVID19 test no more than 72 hours in advance of your travel to Vanuatu and upload evidence of a negative COVID19 test result to the Vanuatu Electronic Traveller System.
Regions/countries where a pre travel COVID19 test is required are:
Africa (all countries)
Asia (all countries)
Europe (all countries)
North & South America (all countries)
Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Guam, French Polynesia, New Caledonia)
Do I need to quarantine?
Currently, all people entering Vanuatu are required to complete 14 full days of quarantine in a government-designated facility.
All passengers entering Vanuatu (Resident, Citizens and Non-Citizens) are required to pay for their own quarantine cost.
Quarantine monitoring will be done via phone calls on days 2/3, day 8/9 and day 14 and all people in quarantine are required to be tested for COVID-19 on day 5 and day 11 (and day 1 for travellers who have been in high-risk countries or areas within 14-days of travel to Vanuatu).
What if I have already had COVID-19 or have had a COVID-19 vaccine?
At this point in the pandemic, there is insufficient evidence about whether COVID-19 antibodies, from either a previous infection or COVID-19 vaccine, actually reduce the risk of a person getting infected with the COVID-19 virus or getting re-infected at a later stage. (The primary purpose of the vaccine is to reduce the likelihood of an infection resulting in severe or critical disease). Therefore, until further notice, testing and quarantine requirements remain unchanged for those who have had a previous COVID-19 infection or vaccine. Immunity passport are not currently supported by the Vanuatu Ministry of Health.”
