The Government of PNG and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Reciprocal Visa Arrangements in Jakarta Indonesia.
Foreign Affairs Minister Rimbink Pato said this was to facilitate Government’s policy with key countries to promote people to people relations, tourism, investment and trade.
Minister Pato said respective Immigration Agencies of both countries would be meeting over the next couple of months to conclude a MOU to facilitate the travel by holders of Ordinary Passport by June this year.
Under this arrangement, diplomats and Government officers from both countries would be granted visa on arrival for up to 60 days.
A similar MOU was signed with the State of Israel during Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s visit last year.
Other countries also approached PNG to conclude similar reciprocal visa arrangements and the PNG Immigration and Service Citizenship Authority has been tasked to conclude these arrangements.
