International Vaccination Certificate

December 28, 2021

All passengers departing internationally from PNG are reminded they must show evidence at check-in that they are fully vaccinated. For passengers who have been vaccinated in PNG, this is the yellow International Vaccination Certificate (which is issued by the PNG National Department of Health).  The green domestic vaccination certificate is not sufficient.

The only exceptions are where;

  • the passenger can provide evidence of a medical exemption in a form acceptable to their destination country,  and for any country’s of transit. This will normally be signed by a medical practitioner; or
  • children under the age of 18 (which is presently the minimum age for vaccinations in PNG) and the child is approved to travel to their destination (and for any country’s of transit) unvaccinated.

Passengers travelling to, or transiting Hong Kong, the passenger must provide evidence of which location they were vaccinated at. For passengers who have been vaccinated in PNG,  this is both the yellow International Vaccination Certificate and the  and green domestic vaccination certificates  (The yellow certificates include the date of birth or passport number,  but the green certificate has the name of the location where the vaccination was completed)

All passengers departing internationally will still need to complete a negative PCR test at Port Moresby airport at the time of check-in.  Access to testing closes two hours prior to scheduled departure. Wearing of face masks in the terminals and on board the aircraft is mandatory, hand sanitisers are provided for your protection, and social distancing is followed wherever practical in order to ensure your international travel remains as safe as possible.
