All goods and items entering PNG are subject to quarantine inspection. Inspections are carried out at the Airport, Seaport and International mail exchange to ensure that items are free of pest and disease infestations and contaminants.
Importation of animal and animal products, plant and plant products and biological products (micro-organisms) require an appropriate import permit from relevant organisations and NAQIA prior to import. Application forms for the permission to import food stuff of plant or animal origin, live plants and animals and biological products (micro-organisms) can be obtained from your closest NAQIA office in the country.
Appropriate application for permission to import must be lodged at the NAQIA Permit Office for screening and approval. Upon approval, permits are issued for importation of the goods. Presentation of original permit is required for quarantine clearance of goods.
