To enter Vanuatu come July, tourists will simply need to provide:

More information on how travellers will need to present the relevant certificates is to come.

Once in Vanuatu, there is no arrival testing required. However, travellers will be asked to play their part in keeping both locals and visitors safe by practising good hygiene and physical distancing. 

If a traveller tests positive for Covid-19 while in Vanuatu, they will need to isolate for seven days in a managed Government designated and approved facility – this may include hotels and resorts or other government health centres, subject to availability.
