Quarantine instructions for international travelers

What is the change?

Papua New Guinea (PNG) citizens and Permanent Residents seeking to return should contact the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) to arrange travel. Non-PNG citizens are required to make applications in writing to the National Operations Centre to enter PNG. The National Operations Centre will process these applications and forward them to the Emergency Controller for approval.

Self-funded travelers are required to provide evidence to immigration officials that they have paid for a 14-day quarantine at an approved hotel, or provide a copy of the document signed by the Emergency Controller exempting them and stating where they will quarantine instead. PNG citizens who require government-funded accommodation and travel are to liaise with the DFAIT who will make the appropriate arrangements.
