Shipping services to Vanuatu
Being an island nation, you can not ship anything via road freight trucks as no other country touches the Republic of Vanuatu. Therefore you will need ship your items either via ocean cargo freight liners or via air mail. Both prospects have a good amount of companies that can help you, but the air mail options will be much faster typically. You can also pay a bit extra for tracking options too.
Customs in Vanuatu
The Customs process in the Republic of Vanuatu is actually quite efficient, all things considered. As long as you have your paperwork in order and pay any duties on items where they are assed in a timely manner, then your items will be released for delivery very quickly- sometimes within hours of getting there. The major thing that holds up a shipment will be waiting on payment of any fees or duties, but that can easily be rectified. You should talk to your shipping company as far as what to expect when shipping there and what paperwork you can fill out before hand to make things go a bit smoother for you.
Security concerns when shipping to Vanuatu
When shipping to the Republic of Vanuatu, you need to take into account their sheer location in regards to their security. They are situated way out in the Pacific Ocean, making it fairly difficult to protect all the waterways surrounding them. For this reason, they do experience some thievery on the water by the way of pirates, originating from some places more than others. This does not happen often enough for you to arbitrarily not ship there as a rule of thumb, but it is something to keep in the back of your mind if you need to ship something there. They do have some security measures in place to help combat these happenings, but they do not stop them altogether. It is advisable that if you do end up shipping here, that you get some sort of insurance out on your items so that you can at least be compensated financially if your items are lost or stolen in route.
