Papua New Guinea Visa Applications

Papua New Guinea Visa Applications

All Papua New Guinea (PNG) visa applications must be lodged by the applicant or the applicant’s sponsor, directly with the Immigration and Citizenship Authority of Papua New Guinea (ICA PNG).

Please visit the new ICA PNG website: https://ica.gov.pg for visa application forms and further details, including how to apply for a visa and enquire on the status of your visa application.

As at 12 November 2018, ICA PNG has introduced a new e-visa program which is now available online for the following visa types only:

  • Visitor
  • Journalist
  • Aid Worker or Volunteer
  • Short-term, Single-entry Business Traveller

For all other visa applications that are not e-visa eligible, the Australian High Commission’s role is limited to issuing a visa based upon approval by the ICA PNG.  Once you have been advised by ICA PNG that your visa has been approved, please contact the Australian High Commission (on: +1 613 236 0841 or by email on: consular.ottawa@dfat.gov.au). Please do not mail your passport to the Australian High Commission in advance.

The Australian High Commission is unable to:

  • accept visa applications
  • provide information on the status of visa applications or ICA PNG processing times
  • collect visa fees
  • or amend/alter visa information.

Please note, ICA PNG determines your visa validity.

If you have questions about your visa application, or to enquire on the status of your visa application, please contact ICA PNG on: +675 3237 6100 or clientservice@immigration.gov.pg

Visa fees are due and payable on arrival in Papua New Guinea. A schedule of current fees is also available on the ICA PNG website.
