This Chapter provides for selected matters relating to ownership of immovable property. Subject to certain exceptions, it declares that only citizens of the state of Pohnpei or corporations wholly owned by citizens of the state of Pohnpei may hold title to land in the state of Pohnpei. It refers to a provision of article 12 of the Pohnpei Constitution relative to acquisition of permanent interest in real property. The Chapter also defines the effect of failure to record transfer of or encumbrance upon title to real estate or any interest therein and establishes the validity of “German land title documents”.

Hupperts, Rudolph (CONSLEGB)
Multiple waves of colonizers, each speaking a distinct language, migrated to the New Hebrides in the millennia preceding European exploration in the 18th century. This settlement pattern accounts for the complex linguistic diversity found on the archipelago to this day. The British and French, who settled the New Hebrides in the 19th century, agreed in 1906 to an Anglo-French Condominium, which administered the islands until independence in 1980, when the new name of Vanuatu was adopted.
Vanuatu is a parliamentary republic.
