Lenakel is a Port of Entry, it is possible to clear in to and clear out of Vanuatu there. Advance notice is required before arrival. See also Vanuatu Arrival & Departure Procedures and Vanuatu Customs & Immigration. Note that it is not permissible to visit Port Resolution before visiting Lenakel unless prior permission is requested and received via email. Permission is usually granted if requested, but Vanuatu Customs are enforcing the regulations tightly and vessels have been fined heavily for arriving without advance notice and/or permission requests.
