Bank License Requirements

You can download the Financial Services Commissioner’s requirements for establishing a Vanuatu exempt bank in the form of an Adobe Acrobat document (a “PDF” document), which preserves the original layout and format of the document regardless of your computer system. You will need the Adobe Acrobat software in order to read the document – this software can be downloaded for free (see the end of this web page).

Vanuatu exempt bank application form

NB. Government fees are usually fully refunded if the application is rejected. However, the Commissioner has the right to keep part or all of the application fees. The Commissioner will usually only exercise his right in this regard if he receives an application which clearly indicates fraudulent or misleading information. Application details are checked for accuracy.

Further information may be required by the Commissioner, who will treat each application on its merits.

Adobe Acrobat
You will need the Adobe Acrobat viewer software in order to view and/or print any Adobe Acrobat document. If you do not already have this software, click the image on the right for a free download. Alternatively, visit the Adobe website for full details on their current products.
