Getting To Where You Are Going
Sola possesses all the necessities of a modern city including a post office, a branch of the National Bank of Vanuatu, police, immigration office, and customs office, in addition to TORBA Provincial shops and guesthouses. Sola also has a medical clinic with an excellent nurse. Mobile communications, including Digicel and Smile (TVL), have arrived in Vanuatu. Digicel, located on the hill above Sola, provides more limited coverage. To-date, there is a dearth of phone coverage on the western postion of Vanua Lav.
