There is no requirement for travellers to Vanuatu to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 although this will be strongly encouraged for all those who are eligible.
All travellers aged two (2) years and over must provide at the airline check-in desk for any international flights to Vanuatu evidence of:
- Negative Covid-19 PCR test done 24 to 72 hours before scheduled departure from travel origin, OR
- Negative Covid-19 supervised certified RAT done within 24 hours of departure, OR
- Positive Covid-19 RAT or PCR test at least 8 days but no more than 2 months before the date of departure, OR
- A recovery letter from a medical doctor stating that the traveller has recovered from a Covid-19 infection within the last 2 months and is no longer infectious.
There is no requirement to upload the test results. However, this is subject to change. We will communicate this in due course.
- A supervised certified RAT test is one for which the collection and evaluation is performed by a healthcare professional (i.e. at a pharmacy, laboratory, hospital or medical center) with a certificate issued.
- The evidence of a negative test result will need to be provided in advance of travel and must be made available at check-in for the flight to Vanuatu and presented to the border control agent upon arrival in Vanuatu.
- The evidence of negative test result can be shown in hard copy or displayed on a smart device.
- If there are one or more connecting flights to Vanuatu, the departure time and date should be considered to be from the initial travel origin from the first flight.
- If flights are delayed but departure occurs within 72 hours of the scheduled departure time then another negative RAT or PCR is not required.
- If flights are delayed by departure occurs within over 72 hours of the initial scheduled departure time, then a new negative RAT or PCR test is required.
No countries are exempt from these requirements.
