Re-evidencing of Entry Permits


Passports must be valid for six (6) months or more to enable re-evidencing. Entry Permits will only be issued for the period of validity of the passport. Where the validity of the Entry Permit extends beyond the validity of the passport, a new Entry Permit will be evidenced once a new passport has been obtained. When an applicant obtains a new passport, a new Entry Permit will be issued for the balance of the period of stay free of charge.

Applicants will be required to complete an application form and provide a copy of the original work permit approval (if applicable).

Where an Entry Permit holder is outside PNG, re-evidencing can be undertaken at the nearest PNG Mission or Post. The mission must obtain approval from ICA Waigani before re-evidencing can occur.
