Very Important Person (person)
The "VIP Hall" (formerly, Royal Family Hall) at the main train station in Nizhny Novgorod

A very important person (VIP) is a person who is accorded special privileges due to their status or importance.[1]

Examples include celebrities, heads of state or heads of government, other politicians, major employers, high rollers, high-level corporate officers, wealthy individuals, or any other socially notable person who receives special treatment for any reason. The special treatment usually involves separation from common people, and a higher level of comfort or service.

In some cases, such as with tickets, VIP may be used as a title in a similar way to premium."These "VIP tickets" can be purchased by anyone, but still meaning separation from other customers, own security checks etc."

The term VVIP or Very Very Important Person is also used,[2] especially with reference to VIPs with very high spending power.[3]

The term VIP is often used in games.
