AIR Niugini says fully vaccinated passengers travelling to Queensland’s Australia are no longer required to quarantine upon arrival.
Air Niugini said in a statement on Friday the travel measure was effective from last Saturday.
However, Air Niugini said its passengers would be required to self-conduct a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) within 24 hours on arrival in Australia.
Air Niugini said travel remained restricted to Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealanders normally residing in Australia.
“Air Niugini expects travel to be extended to other visa holders such as tourists early next month. Intending international travellers who are not yet vaccinated should get this done now,” Air Niugini said.
“Passengers are also reminded that the Green Card PNG Vaccination Certificate is not valid for international travel, as it does not include the person’s date of birth or passport number. It said the PNG International Certificate of Covid-19 Vaccination is available from the Health Department.
“Passengers travelling to PNG are reminded they still need to get the Pandemic Controller’s approval prior to check-in.”
