The 2023 ICC Women's T20 World Cup East Asia-Pacific Qualifier was a cricket tournament that formed part of the qualification process for the 2024 ICC Women's T20 World Cup.[1] The East Asia-Pacific qualifier tournament was hosted at the Vanuatu Cricket Ground from 1 to 8 September 2023, and the top team in the tournament progressed to the 2024 ICC Women's T20 World Cup Qualifier.[2] The tournament was played as a single round-robin, featuring the national teams of Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Papua New Guinea and Samoa.[3]

Ahead of the qualifier, hosts Vanuatu played a two-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series against Japan at the same venue.[4] Vanuatu won the series 2–0.[5]

Vanuatu progressed to the global qualifier by remaining unbeaten throughout the tournament.[6] Vanuatu all-rounder Rachel Andrew was named player of the tournament and batter of the tournament, while her teammate 16-year-old Vanessa Vira was named bowler of the tournament.[7]
