We extend our previous work on the construction of multi-component dark-type solitons of the vector nonlinear Schrodinger equation to include higher-order nonlinear optical effects. Exact solutions, such as the dark-dark, the bright-dark and the bright-bright pair of solitons are found explicitly and the effects of higher-order nonlinear terms are explained.
