Meanwhile, I received a VARN number for an employment visa application lodged on 5 March 2014 by our Port Moresby Office. This should have been fast tracked since last Friday, but no decision yet. A Tourist or Business Visa clearly prohibits employment, so logically I can not use these visa to enter the country without breaking PNG immigration laws. Moreover, the students do not want my temporary appearance, they want my return as Vice-Chancellor.

With both sides already agreeing that Dr. Schram's presence in Papua New Guinea would aid solution of Unitech's issues, and with the dates of his visa applications clearly stated, today would be an excellent time for the government's highest levels to make sure that there is no further delay in granting that visa.

I applied for a visa on 26 August 2013. Visa application was filed (again) 3 March 2014. Until today, no answer, or even acknowledgement of receipt.

This should have been done before. Anyway thanks Mr Kua for your intervention.
