No requirement for COVID-19 test prior to international travel to Vanuatu

Effective as of Monday 12 September 2022, the health requirement for a negative COVID-19 test or recovery letter prior to travel to Vanuatu has been removed.

This should no longer be required at check-in or upon entry to Vanuatu. TIMATIC should therefore be updated accordingly.

The Ministry of Health continue to encourage those travellers who experience signs or symptoms of COVID-19 to postpone their travel to Vanuatu until they are well.

Further details are in the attached information note and are available on the Ministry of Health website:
