    Additional Information

    While traveling in Papua New Guinea, please keep in mind that although PNG is situated relatively close to other well-developed South Pacific and Asian nations such as Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tahiti, Indonesia, and Singapore, PNG is somewhat isolated, and, as a result, most services and facilities, including transportation and tourism, are relatively underdeveloped by comparison. Unlike these countries, you are visiting a country with a tourist trade in its infancy and thus you may have to deal with different situations along the way. PNG also has a culture that is completely different from others. Although these factors make for a unique experience, at times it may create circumstances that might become frustrating if the visitor does not remain patient and keep an open mind. If you come to Papua New Guinea with a spirit of adventure and a positive, flexible attitude, you will have only good memories to take home with you.

    Special Note Regarding Charter Flights: Maximum baggage allowance is 10 kg / 22 lbs per person and a maximum of 5 kg / 11 lbs for carry-on baggage per person. Large, hard-sided suitcases are not permitted on charter aircraft.
