Destination Information for Vanuatu

Vanuatu is located in an area of seismic activity. The country has only recently returned to normal after a state of emergency was declared following intense seismic activity. The situation continues to be volatile, especially in Malampa Province and Lopevi Island. Follow local advice for the correct safety procedures to follow if you are in an area experiencing an earthquake or volcanic eruption. Vanuatu is also subject to tropical storms and cyclones, particularly during the months from November to May. If you’re planning your trip, you may wish to avoid these times.

Vanuatu is generally considered a safe country in terms of crime, although crime levels do appear to be rising, with growing reports of theft and burglary, especially from hotel rooms, and street crime.  These incidents do have the potential to become violent. Avoid carrying a lot of valuables, and don’t walk in unfamiliar areas after dark if at all possible.

There are basic medical facilities available in Vanuatu, however more serious cases will require evacuation in order to receive appropriate treatment. Ensure that your travel insurance will cover this if it becomes necessary. While in the country, tourists are advised to take particular care to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes, as there is a current outbreak of Dengue Fever, for which there is no vaccine, malaria is also present. Travel vaccines and malaria tablets are recommended before travel so visit a travel clinic for the necessary treatment and advice.

These names are derived from the first letters or syllables of the most important islands within each group. The capital city is Port-Vila, which is on the island of Efate in the Shefa island group.

Vanuatu is a wonderful destination for anyone with a sense of adventure. There are plenty of activities on offer to keep you active, from snorkelling, diving and swimming to trekking and mountain biking. Those hoping for a more sedate and relaxing holiday can lounge on beautiful beaches under tropical palm trees. Vanuatu was declared the happiest nation on the planet in 2006 and it’s not hard to see why!
