New rules in Vanuatu

ADVERTISEMENT

All yachts en route to Vanuatu must give at least 24 hours advance notice of arrival to customs. The procedure, according to Vanuatu Yacht Services (www.vanuatuyachtservices.com), is to begin with an e-mail to customsborder@vanuatu.go.vu with the name of the vessel, name if the master, the voyage, estimated date and time of arrival in Vanuatu, place where boat will land or berth, and name and contact details of person supplying this information.

Upon arrival, yachts must fly the yellow Quarantine flag and call Customs on VHF Ch. 16 in Port Vila and Lenakal only.

“It is an offense to come ashore in Vanuatu unless having undergone customs clearance procedures on arrival,” the company said in a statement.
