Advantages of a Vanuatu Banking License

In recent years, Vanuatu’s offshore banking economy has benefited from the increasingly complicated regulatory and financial privacy rights landscape of major financial centers such as the United States and the European Union.

As billions of dollars are kept in Vanuatu’s offshore banks, there is a heightened focus on regulations such as Anti-Laundering controls. This has brought a certain legitimacy to Vanuatu’s offshore banking industry — especially as the majority of banks do not accept international or high-risk clients any longer. The offshore banking industry of Vanuatu presents significant market opportunities to open an offshore bank account.

Why Choose a Vanuatu Banking License?

The Republic of Vanuatu is an island located in the South Pacific long known for being an international offshore financial services center. A former colony of both France and Great Britain, Vanuatu’s primary language is English, and the Vanuatu dollar as its official currency. However, the United States dollar is also widely accepted in its banking system, as well as all major international currencies, making it a great center for trade.

 The Republic of Vanuatu doesn’t tax offshore profits and only enforces a minimal stamp duty on domestic share transfers. An asset protection haven, the island offers significant hurdles to affixing liability, including a restriction against the domestication of foreign judgments. Vanuatu offers an International Bank License that covers all banking-related activities, including accepting deposits and issuing debit cards. The licensure is recognized worldwide, is cost-effective, and can be obtained quickly.

For these reasons and more, sophisticated financial services organizations choose to set up banking activities in this small island nation.
