The Papua New Guinean government is keen to open up visa on arrival for Indian tourists in the country, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Treasury, Charles Abel said on Saturday. He was talking to guests at the Indian night celebrations of its 36 years in Papua New Guinea.
He said the initial arrangement was to have visa on arrival for both countries, however, PNG did not live up to its word and the government is now trying to fulfil that.
“The Indian Government has reciprocated by opening access for Papua New Guineans to go to India and unfortunately we have not done the same as yet. That is a concern and we are discussing this with the India High Commissioner and we will look into that to see if can get that resolved quickly,” he said.
