Ni-Vanuatu to get into New Caledonia visa free

7:48 pm on 6 April 2016

Ni-Vanuatu will soon no longer need a visa to visit neighbouring New Caledonia.

This was announced at the weekend when the president of New Caledonia, Philippe Germain, met with Vanuatu's prime minister, Charlot Salwai.

Until now ni-Vanuatu wanting to travel to New Caledonia have had to endure long waits at the French Embassy in Port Vila to secure a visa.

There will still be a wait of at least two weeks before the change is formally approved in Paris.
