Right To Information Unit


To provide open, accountable and participatory government for all the people of Vanuatu.

Make An Information Request

In 2013, the Government approved the National Right to Information (RTI) Policy. This policy means that any person has the right to request and obtain access to information held by the government.

It also requires government agencies to publish information about their role, functions, policies, decisions and how to contact them. Some information cannot be made public to protect personal privacy, national security, health and safety, commercial in confidence and some other limited circumstances.

The RTI Policy also allows you to access and correct any of your personal information which is held by public and some private bodies. The RTI Policy was an initiative of the Government working hand in hand with civil society and the media, with assistance from the Unite Nations Development Program (UNDP). It shows a commitment by all to work together for a better future for our nation.
