MailDuring training, family and friends can send mail to you at the Peace Corps office. The address is:
Republic of Vanuatu
Although you can collect your mail from the office, the Peace Corps staff usually brings it to the training site. The length of time for mail sent from the United States varies, but small envelopes and parcels generally arrive in Port Vila in two or three weeks.
Cellphones have hit Vanuatu, and rural coverage is now at over 85 percent. However, the quality of the service varies greatly from place to place, and some Volunteers may still be an hour’s walk from mobile service. In remote locations, Volunteers also have a Peace Corps-issued satellite phone as backup communication.
There are a few Internet cafes in the Port Vila area. You can also access email and the Internet at the Peace Corps office’s resource center, which has four computers for use by trainees and Volunteers, as well as wireless for personal computers. A few of our Volunteers based in semi-rural communities will have some Internet connectivity, but most Volunteers will have no connection.
