PNG’s border security laws to be strengthened

Minister for Immigration and Border Security, Westley Nukundj, made this know whilst issuing a warning to foreigners who are conducting illegal businesses in the country.

Nukundj has committed to enforcing the warning issued by Prime Minister James Marape to penalise those foreigners who continue to violate the migration law and policies of PNG.

The Department of Immigration and Border Security, as one of the lead agencies of governance, will manage, monitor and support the Government to implement its “Take Back PNG” slogan.

ICA gets tough on foreign entries

Chief Migration Officer, Solomon Kantha, said ICA is proud to be one of the agencies at the forefront of APEC activities.

“And we stand ready to play our part in hosting a successful APEC 2018.”

Kantha said they will be very strict in people coming and going out of the country during the APEC week.

In doing so, he said the PNG Immigration and Citizenship Authority has prevented a foreign national, who had historical convictions for sexual assault of a child, from entering Papua New Guinea.
