Hmmm... not so sure about that because there is no quarantine presence on the I de P, and the French are picky about that. In the past when folks were allowed partial clearance at We in the Loyalties, one had to present theboat in Noumea in just a few days to complete formalities including Q inspection
And the officials are not always present on Anietyium (sp?) in Vanuatu, and once again when they are there, it is only a partial clearance, with a later report in at Vila necessary.
No free lunches in paradise these days!
