A historic decision was made by the Government of Papua New Guinea and Fiji today.
Starting on a date to be confirmed soon, nationals from both countries travelling between PNG and Fiji or vice versa can do so without a visa.
In a joint press conference, the Prime Ministers of both countries announced various assistance programmes highlighting the need to strengthen existing relations between the two countries.
PNG’s Prime Minister, Honorable Peter O’Neil said this decision was designed to go straight between the two countries and allow for the easy movement of nationals from both countries.
