Non-native land shall not be alienated, whether by sale, gift, lease or otherwise, unless at least 6 weeks before the alienation notice thereof has been served on the Minister, who may inform the intended vendor that the Crown wishes to acquire the interest intended to be alienated.. Where the Minister and the vendor are unable to agree on terms of transfer the land in question shall be deemed for the purposes of the Crown Acquisition of Lands Ordinance to be required for a public purpose. ”Non-native land” means land owned by a person other than a native but does not include land owned by a local government council or by a society registered under the Cooperative Societies Ordinance which immediately prior to its alienation to the council or society, as the case may be, was owned by a native.

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.
