PAPUA New Guinea has introduced a new tourist visa for Australians. Australian passport holders can now secure a 30-day free tourist visa on arrival.
The change in visa requirements was announced this week by the PNG cabinet and is the first time this option has been available to Australian visitors.
Papua New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority CEO, Jerry Agus (pictured), said he is delighted at the news and sees the decision as an important step forward for the tourism industry.
“We wholeheartedly welcome this news,” Mr Agus said.
