ABOUT PORT MORESBY

Port Moresby is the capital of Papua New Guinea. Port Moresby is also known as Pom city or Moresby. The city is located on the shores of the gulf of Papua on the south western coast of the Papuan peninsula on the island of New Guinea.

The city is the capital of Papua New Guinea and is the largest city in PNG and the south pacific (excluding Australian and New Zealand cities). Port Moresby has a population of approx. 380,000 people. The city emerged as a trading centre during World War II. The city was named in honour of Sir Fairfax Moresby.

Port Moresby is surrounded by central province but is not part of the province, but forms the National Capital District.

Port Moresby is the main port of entry to PNG (however it is not the largest port, which is the Port Of Lae). Motukea is now considered the main trading port for Port Moresby. Motukea port is a modern state of the art port facility offering deep-water access, meaning it is able to handle large commercial container vessels.

Unfortunately Port Moresby is rated one of the worlds most unliveable cities, this is due to rampant crime and government corruption. Customs checks at the international port can be a daunting experience, where customs officials try to charge for may seek to charge you or confiscate your personal belongings unless you give them money. They will insist you present receipts upon your arrival for your personal effects such as electronic items, personal laptop and even your personal clothes so they can charge you 10% GST or else, your items will be held. This tactic is getting more and more popular. In fact, according to PNG Custom website, personal effects are duty-free. There are cases where tourist’s passports are held without a legal basis by customs officers, in an effort to extort money.

Shipping from Australia to Port Moresby is weekly or regular from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, (Fremantle) Perth, Adelaide, Townsville and Darwin

Things to see and do in Port Moresby:

  • Port Moresby Nature Park (formerly The National Botanical Gardens) A must for the visitor. Located next to University of Papua New Guinea, it has some amazing examples of PNG wildlife such as birds of paradise, cassowaries, tree kangaroos, multiple wallaby species, and many other native bird species. Lush, tropical and well -kept gardens. A great break from the dry, dusty surrounds and bustle of the capital city. If you are lucky you might catch a wedding while you are there as some locals like to conduct the ceremony in the gardens.
  • Port Moresby Golf Club A nice golf course located right across from the government buildings. The prices are quite acceptable for visitors. Be careful, crocodiles inhabit the water holes of the golf course. The main building has a nice restaurant where one can have lunch and have a few SP beers (South Pacific beers) after a round of golf.

Remember, Port Moresby does have a Police Force, but it is also known to be corrupt. POM is a great place to visit, but be careful and try to avoid walking the streets or driving alone at night

There is an increasing number of people purchasing cars online from overseas and importing them in Papua New Guinea. Although the purchase price of these vehicles may seem cheaper than what you can purchase here in Papua New Guinea there are significant costs associated with importing and getting these vehicles on the road. In addition to freight and insurance costs, there is also import duties which can, depending on the size of the motor, range from 40%-110% of the vehicles import value. On top of this Import GST of 10% is also collected at the time of import. Add to this broker fees, Quarantine clearance fees, port handling fees, car safety inspection fees and registration fees and this can often double the original purchase price of the vehicle.

Please be aware of all the costs associated with purchasing and importing a vehicle from overseas before you make you purchase. If your vehicle is imported and left at a Customs wharf for over 30 days it is forfeited to the Sate of Papua New Guinea and can be sold or auctioned to recover the duty, GST, and other handling and storage fees owing.

Documentation will be evidence will need to be produced to support your claim. These documents may include:

  • receipts showing purchase and delivery dates
  • registration and insurance papers
  • evidence when the vehicle, boat or plane was surrendered for shipping .
