Welcome to the Republic of Palau’s Foreign Investment Board (FIB) Webpage!

Alii (hello) and greetings from the Palau Foreign Investment Board (FIB)!

FIB is governed by a board of presidential nominees and is responsible for approving and regulating foreign investment in the Republic of Palau. The Board and its office are created and governed by the Foreign Investment Act, codified at Chapter 1 of Title 28 of the Palau National Code, and its implementing regulations, both available on the right side of this web page.

Foreign investment is essential to Palau’s continued economic growth, helping to expand the country’s tax base and provide business and employment opportunities for citizens. It is also a relatively unexplored land of opportunity for the savvy investor. Particularly in the midst of a global pandemic, FIB has double downed on its efforts to reduce bureaucracy and facilitate investment.

It is never colder than 73 degrees Fahrenheit in Palau, and we expect a huge tourism boom as flights begin coming back. Contact us to see how we can help you invest in this tropical oasis.
