New Zealand High Commission Port Vila, Vanuatu


Prime Minister John Key made a successful three day visit to Vanuatu, 3-6 August, to attend the 41st Pacific Islands Forum, including Leaders' Retreat at Port Havannah.  During the Forum, leaders unanimously accepted New Zealand's offer to host the Pacific Islands Forum in 2011 - the year New Zealand is also to host the Rubgy World Cup.         


A Royal New Zealand Air Force P3K Orion touched down at Bauerfield Airport on Monday 8 March 2010, marking 30 years of maritime surveillance cooperation between New Zealand and the Government of Vanuatu, and representing over 400 flights over Vanuatu’s 680,000 sq km Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The flight was greeted by the Minister of Internal Affairs, Hon Moana Carcasses Kalosil, and HE New Zealand High Commissioner, Jeff Langley, as well as a number of senior officials from the Vanuatu Government. 


The New Zealand High Commission wishes to inform the public that as at 1st February 2010, a new fee schedule will apply to the New Zealand Immigration Services when making applications.


Vanuatu’s passport is to be upgraded to a machine readable document, meeting international standards and guaranteeing Ni-Vanuatu maintain access to international travel.
