PNG Visa Online Auto-Grant Function Reactivated 2022

Minister for Immigration and Labour, Bryan Kramer, re-launched the auto-grant system (PNG Visa Online Service) to reduce the high volume of applications and improve turnaround time for clients.

Kramer stated that the system is independent and will only be for selected visa classes including 

  • Tourists (own itinerary and tour package), 
  • visiting relative, 
  • yacht person (crew and owner), 
  • easy visitor permit (30/60 days) and 
  • the Restricted Employment Visa.
The minister said...

“This system is now available. PNG Immigration have used it before during the APEC in 2018, the Women’s Soccer World Cup and the Pacific Games in Port Moresby to facilitate large volumes of delegates. I want to reactivate this in a similar way but with strict conditions attached to the auto-grant letters,”

PNG Visa Online fast approval

The auto-grant will allow tourists and visitors on short-term visits to get their visas granted immediately instead of waiting for seven days to get approval.

“The PNG Immigration and Citizenship Authority (ICA) will step up its compliance and enforcement efforts to ensure visitors are complying with the conditions set out in the auto-grant letters. 

With limited staff on strength, I am taking this option so personnel in the department can concentrate on other visa categories that need careful assessment and consideration”.

The auto-granting of PNG Visa Online applications does not in any way compromise the integrity of the systems or pose security risks.
