Where can I go with my new passport?
LIST OF COUNTRIES – VISA FREE OR STAMPED ON ARRIVAL
The EU has decided to lift the visa-free entry for the 27 countries in the Schengen area for Vanuatu citizens. This means that for now at least, you can travel visa-free to 108 countries with the Vanuatu passport instead of 135.
Countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Russia, Ireland, UK, UAE, Thailand, Montenegro, Hong Kong and others remain visa free. If you want to enter the Schengen area, you have to apply for a visa just like if you want to go to the USA.
It’s not a bad thing, because every other NON-EU member will have to apply for an EU visa anyway
